Penmara Wines


Penmara Wines is an exciting addition to the Australian viticultural landscape. Created towards the end of 2000 and based in the Hunter Valley, our unique winery was formed when 5, well established, family owned vineyards joined forces so as to gain greater control over our winemaking and distribution activities. The synergies of this new venture has resulted in our ability to consistently produce higher quality wines to satisfy the larger international and domestic markets.

Practices & Techniques

We strive to retain the characteristics and qualities of the vineyards, for we believe that great wines are made in the vineyard, by real people who tend the vines with passion and dedication. Continual family ownership will ensure this philosophy is maintained and this is enforced by the experience of our chief winemaker, John Hordern, who is the third generation of his family to make wine in the Hunter Valley.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Penmara draws on over 400 acres of vineyards to create its award winning wines from the Hunter Valley, Orange and surrounding areas, all planted to the major international varieties. This diversity of selection allows our winemakers to consistently produce the high quality wines within our portfolio.
