Our vines were planted in 1985 by current owners/vignerons, husband and wife, Michael Sweeney and Janette Kenworthy.
The “Hill” is a geographic land mark in Mudgee, so named after wagon driver named Martin, who lost his life when his wagon ran out of control descending the steep slope during the Gold Rush times in the district.
The vineyard is substantially worked by hand by Michael and Janette, and the vines are carefully hand pruned and the grapes handpicked.
Our organic practice includes the integration of fine wool Merino sheep in the vineyards during six months of the year.
Our vineyard’s Carbon footprint is neutral. This has been achieved with electricity provided by a massive Solar Array producing 4.2 Kw. Grid connected. 20% of the property has been permanently planted with native species, and regeneration has also occurred, this negates other emissions such as diesel use in the vineyard. All hot water is generated by the latest evacuated tube technology, and the business vehicle is a Prius Hybrid Electric.
The sum of all of these innovations would arguably be amongst the best Carbon footprint for any vineyard.
