The estate, which is now named Gemelli, was purchased by the original owners in the early 1970's, with the first lot of vines being planted 10 years later.
In 2010 we purchased the property and made the tree change from a beachside suburb in Newcastle to the picturesque Hunter Valley.
There is 7 acres under vine here at Gemelli Estate, growing the Chardonnay, Merlot and Muscat Grape.
This is a boutique vineyard that is owned and operated by our family. You will find us at the cellar door, in the kitchen, maintaining the gardens and tending the vines.
Helping pick the Chardonnay Grapes – 2013 Vintage
In the last 5 years we’ve been awarded with silver medals for our wines; only to not be able to pick any the next year at all due to the rain. We’ve grown from all of these experiences and so have our helpers.
Each twin now has a wine named after them that they are very proud of.
Our High Teas have gained a following of local support which I am so grateful for and of course our parents are still enjoying their retirement out here.
5 years on with my ever growing ‘Gemelli’s’ by my side and I still marvel at our view every morning and enjoy a glass of our very OWN wine every night.
