A great wine begins in the vineyard. At Stonehurst Cedar Creek Vineyard the fifth generation Heslop family remain committed to sustainable agriculture. The elevated trellis captures sunlight and airflow enhancing fruit quality and flavours. Vines are hand pruned, and all fruit handpicked. They use no insecticide and only organically approved fungicide.
The results of the labour of love are award winning wines from a very healthy vineyard. Try the Methode Champagnoise, Hunter Boutique Wine Show Trophy winner. There's also Semillon, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Chambourcin and fortified wines to try.
Stonehurst welcome you to enjoy a wine tasting at their sandstone Cellar Door - make a day of it and explore the Wollombi Valley Wine Trail. Stay in a vineyard cottage, relax, rest, enjoy.
Stonehurst are proud hosts of 'Sculpture in the Vineyards' - an exhibition of large scale outdoor works, held annually throughout November, continuing into December.
