Estate History

saltire estate history

 

Saltire Estate is a new and exciting wine business comprising an old vineyard with Semillon, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Merlot varieties and a new state of the art winery. 


The vineyard has received a 5 star rating from the well known wine critic,  James Halliday. Saltire Estate has produced award winning grapes over the years and the winery itself has already produced medal winning wines.

The vineyard was originally part of the much larger George Hunter Estate established by the Sydney restaurateur, Oliver Shaul in the 1970's. Our vines are now all that remains of the 500 acre estate. Saltire Wines vineyard was acquired from Jan & Jorg Gartelmann in 2006.
