Meerea Park Wines
Meerea Park, while taking a modern approach to winemaking can trace their winemaking roots in the Hunter Valley back to the 1850’s. This is when Alexander Munro their great-great-grandfather established the ‘Bebeah’ vineyard at Singleton. Their ‘Individual Vineyard’ range labels bear the image of an ornate drinking fountain and gas street lamp that Alexander Munro commissioned. He had the lamp and drinking fountain made in Scotland and then shipped to Singleton in the Hunter Valley.
