Thistle Hill Wines

Nature knows best. That’s why, when it comes to making great wine, the less interference, the better. This philosophy informs every single thing we do. The result is consistently outstanding organic drops, enjoyed all over Australia and the world.

It was in 1976 that we established. Even back then – before organic was a trendy word – we decided to go chemical-free. Many years later, we were awarded organic certification by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA).

Thistle Hill expanded in 2009, when current owners Rob and Mary Loughan took over from founder Lesley Robertson. They decided to join forces with neighbouring Erugdere Vineyards, combining two properties into one.

Our boutique, organic wines have been championed by the likes of wine writers James Halliday and Robin Bradley.

The simple answer is that organic grapes make superior wines. Grown without any pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers, our fruit is healthy, succulent and bursting with deliciousness. This vibrancy is expressed in our wines, which are known for their exuberance, elegance and fruit-driven flavour profiles.

In addition, organic is better for your health and that of the environment. We feel lucky to live in such a stunning area, so we’re passionate about keeping our land, waterways and air in pristine condition. We want to leave them in good working order for the generations to come.
