The Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest wine region, so its history and heritage are integral to understanding how Australian wine has evolved.
Australian cultures of making, selling and drinking wine are more than echoes of British and European traditions and trends — they represent new practices and styles. Hunter wine is the result of horticultural, chemical, technological, social and economic experimentation by men and women who have migrated to the region since the 1820s. In turn, the Hunter landscape and people have been shaped by the presence of vineyards and wineries since early colonisation.
This book gives new expression to connected histories of nature and culture in the region by viewing them through the lens of wine history. Tracing six generations of the region's wine community from the 1820s, it introduces forgotten characters, places and practices alongside famous names like Wyndham, Lindeman, Tyrrell, Drayton, Tulloch, McWillian and McGuigan.
