LEOGATE ESTATE WINES
Leogate Estate is a sustainable estate at the foot of Brokenback Ranges in Australia's oldest wine-producing region, the Hunter Valley.
First planted in the 1970's by "one of the founding fathers of the modern Australian wine industry", Len Evans AO OBE. Current custodians Bill and Vicki Widin bought the original 50-hectare under vine 'Brokenback Vineyard' in 2008. Bill and Vicki as former Angus producers in the Tamworth district have used their own knowledge and experience on the land, along with the expertise of others such as senior winemaker Mark Woods, to reinvigorate the property and build the successful wine brand they are known for today.
The Widin's and senior winemaker Mark Woods, have presided over international accolades including the IWC Trophy for Best New Wine, being featured in Qantas First and Business class for seven consecutive years, and various medals have been awarded on the national wine show circuit for their prestigious wines. Specializing in Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz this is not one to miss.
