The high standard of McLeish Wines reflects the finest quality. We are Australia’s most awarded Boutique Winery.

About Us

McLeish Estate was established in 1985 when Robert and Maryanne McLeish planted semillon & chardonnay vines on their 16 hectare property situated at DeBeyers Road, Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley, 163km North of Sydney.

Today, after more than 30 years of producing premium quality warm-climate wines and having been awarded numerous trophies and medals at prestigious wine shows, the McLeish family continues to produce wines that capture the freshness and elegance that Hunter Valley wines are famous for.

Since the humble beginnings, the family-owned winery has achieved great success with Andrew Thomas as the Chief Winemaker. Production has grown to include six varietals, all produced on the property.  With our daughter Jessica now involved,  there are plenty of medals and we continue producing the wines that we are so passionate about –  there are definitely no regrets.
