Thistle Hill is an award winning and sustainable winery that has been making organic and preservative free wine decades before it became
a trend. Since 1975 we have been pulling grapes from the same vines that were first planted on The Hill, and we were amongst the first few vineyards to adopt total organic wine farming practices in Australia.
Thistle Hill wines have been local and national favorites for four decades. You can taste the fruit in every glass and it’s all because of the grapes we harvest that are nurtured organically and always have been. Organic grapes become organic wines and they simply taste better.
Thistle Hill began making wine in 1975 on the grounds of one of Mudgee’s most historic landmarks from the Australian gold rush of the 1800s. On our property stands the first waystation, where gold minors came to relax and take in the beauty of the valley. Our guesthouse is available year round for travellers who want to experience Australia’s rich history in a unique and cozy way. Staying at Thistle Hill with your family and friends is a great way to experience life on an organic vineyard.
It is against the law to sell or supply alcohol to, or to obtain alcohol on behalf of, a person under the age of 18 years.
At Thistle Hill we have never followed trends; because since the beginning, our vineyard has been a trendsetter. In 1975 we made a commitment to organic and sustainable farming practices long before it was popular; and for over four decades we have maintained a standard of wine making unprecedented for the cost per bottle we offer our products both nationally and abroad.
Though the vinyard has enjoyed several owners over the years, the current owners Rob and Mary Loughan and Anthony Boys, have created enough space for our wine maker, Tim White, to push the boundaries of what is possible in organic farming. Though new to Thistle Hill, you can taste the fruits of Tim’s innovative practices in every new bottle of our award winning wine.
