We’re one of Mudgee’s oldest wineries. It was in 1976 that we established our vineyards on our beautiful property in the Erudgere Valley, just a ten minute drive from town. Even back then – before organic was a trendy word – we decided to go chemical-free. 17 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.
The land is rich, not only in scenic beauty, but in history, too. When you drop by, you can visit Australia’s first waystation: in the 1800s, gold miners used to stop here overnight, to relax and refresh themselves. If you’d like to do the same, then you’re welcome to stay in our cosy guesthouse.
