Established in 1998, Vinden Estate is now under the guidance of the second generation wine maker Angus Vinden. Since taking over in 2015 has maintained the original label ‘Vinden Estate’ which possess a traditional Hunter style as well as producing his offshoot label allowing a more experimental approach ‘The Vinden Headcase’; balancing tradition with innovation.
We handcraft our wines (literally not figuratively) on-site at our Hunter Valley vineyard and winery from hand-picked grapes using the traditional methods of open fermentation, hand plunging and basket pressing, as well as incorporating the best of modern wine making techniques. All of the wines are strictly Hunter Valley, sourcing fruit off the estate vineyard and old vine blocks mainly Somerset Vineyard in Pokolbin where Angus was mentored under the 8th generation grower Glen Howard.
Our range of wines includes the Hunter Valley’s only Sparkling Alicante Bouschet, Rosé, Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay, Basket Press Shiraz and Tempranillo. We focus primarily on Single Vineyard wines.
