About Organics

Thistle Hill's vineyard has been formally certified organic since 1993.

Wine Quality

Connoisseurs often choose organic wines because they want authentic, full flavours and complexity.

Thistle Hill does not use pesticides or herbicides. These chemicals leach nutrients from the soil.

Our grapes grow naturally from the rich nutrients and minerals in our soil. The vines work harder and have deeper roots than non-organic vines. The end result is complex wines that are a great representation of our vineyard and the Central Ranges Wine Region.

Think about when you buy a tomato or any other produce at a farmers market. An organic tomato tastes much better than one purchased in a supermarket. Organic grapes are no different. They are full of flavor and create excellent wines just as nature intended and as humans have been doing since Roman times, before chemicals were invented.

Our Story

Our Story

Nestled in the Cudgegong Valley on the outskirts of Mudgee NSW lies the beautiful vineyard and winery of Thistle Hill. Established in 1975, Thistle Hill is one of the oldest vineyards and wineries in the region that has been certified organic by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA) since 1993. Our vineyard is unusual, even in the organic world, as chemical sprays have never been used on our vines. We are as pure as we can get; - you can taste the difference. Our long-term organic status means the vineyard is free of all synthetic materials - including toxic pesticides, herbicides, fertilisers and systemic fungicides. The sustainable principles in the vineyard translate to more concentrated and well-balanced fruit each vintage, which in turn makes elegant, fruit-driven wines that speak for themselves - just as nature intended. We are proud of our fine organic vines and our true commitment to the earth that sustains them.


We actively promote the methodology of organic farming and to that end Thistle Hill has from the early days, planted tree breaks to attract and keep the dozens of bird species that call it home. These birds are an integral part of the organic pest control at Thistle Hill. We install bee hives to help with pollination each year.

The saying goes ‘Great wine is made in the vineyard, not in the winery’.

Without grapes full of complex flavour and aroma it is not possible to make wine that is great.
