Grove Estate Wines Young is in the heart of the Hilltops. The Hilltops has become one the greatest wine grape growing regions in Australia over the past 20 years. In the last 5 years wines from the Hilltops including grapes from the Grove Estate vineyards have won such prestigious awards as the "Jimmy Watson" trophy in 2010, and as recently as 2014 the Finest Shiraz in Australia in the great Australian Shiraz Tasting. Grove Estate's 35 Hectares of vineyards make up just part of the Grove Estate story. The Kirkwood's, Flanders and Mullany's (The Partners of Grove Estate) also own another 55 Hectares of vineyards that supply the Grove Estate label. Mark and Vickie Flanders have vineyard adjoining Grove Estate on the Murringo Road. Peter and Suzanne Kirkwood have Shiraz less then a Kilometre from Grove Estate and Brian and Suellen Mullany have Cabernet, Barbera and Sangiovese in the same area. Brian and Suellen along with Michelle and Vince Fernon (Brian's sister and brother in Law) have another 30 Hectares around 10 Kilometres from Grove Estate towards the small village of Wombat. This diversification of sites and soil types along withbthe unique micro climates on each vineyard allows for a great ability to produce a diverse style of wines from the one GI (Geographical Identification Area). This together with the huge range of varieties that we grow including Nebbiolo, Zinfandel, Barbera, Sangiovese, Viognier, ........... make Grove Estate a really exciting Wine company.

Krinklewood VineyardWe (Rod and Suzanne Windrim) planted our first vines on our first Hunter Valley property in 1981. In 1997 we moved to a picturesque property in Broke Fordwich and planted a much larger 48 acre vineyard. We completed courses in wine processing and viticulture at Kurri Kurri Tafe and later attended a Rudolph Steiner Agriculture course. This course was hugely influential and impacted immediately on our overall approach to viticulture and farming. By early 2002, we were fully committed to Biodynamics and commenced to manage our farm organically and biodynamically. Krinklewood Vineyard became fully certified biodynamic by 2007. Krinklewood is a family owned boutique Hunter Valley winery and vineyard in which every member of the family contributes significantly. We, together with our great team of vineyard and cellar door staff, are all committed and ‘hands on’ in the daily biodynamic operations of the vineyard and farm and delight in the fact that ‘what you put in is what you get back’. Our unique logo is somewhat a tribute to our beloved Limousin cattle. Prior to the vineyard being planted, Krinklewood Biodynamic Vineyard was home to more than 60 Limousin cattle. Gradually the herd has been reduced to make room for the vines, but the remaining herd still roam freely and contribute significantly to our biodynamic farming practices. This striking breed of cattle originate from the Limoge province in France where an ancient cave painting depicting the bulls gave inspiration for the Krinklewood logo.
