Organic, biodynamic, low preservative, vegan-friendly, natural wines. At Macquariedale Organic Wines we follow a passion for natural winemaking, specialising in converting small parcels of grapes into the most delicious natural wines available in Australia.
In 2005 Macquariedale Organic Wines became the first vineyard in the Hunter Valley to receive full Biodynamic Certification. Becoming Biodynamic was a lifestyle choice as well as it being very important to us to be able to improve the land as we farm it. Biodynamics takes organic and sustainability practises several steps further by actually improving the soil. Being Certified Biodynamic/Organic means all products used in the vineyard (and in our case our whole property) are all natural and do not contain synthetic chemicals, herbicides, pesticides or systemic chemicals. The results of these practises is that the produce is grown the way nature intended, retaining its fullness of flavour, richness of colour and diversity or aromas of the land. By practising Biodynamic viticulture, we secure a better and healthier future for our land, our plants, ourselves and for you, our customers.
It was 27 years ago we made the “big vine change” to the Hunter Valley. We gained the Hunter Valley’s FIRST Organic/Biodynamic Vineyard Certification and expanded the regions knowledge and appreciation of Organics. And along the way worked with wonderful people and communities, such as Slow Food Hunter Valley. However, the time has come for us to move onto a new wine region – Orange NSW.
All online orders and club packs will proceed as normal, or give us a call on 0429 892 812 and we will organise shipment of your wine!
The next 12 months will be a transition period for Macquariedale. The 2021 vintage will proceed in the Hunter Valley as planned. We’ll also be adding some grapes from Orange which will be received in members packs later in 2021.
Look out for our new cellar door opening in Orange in 2021! We will keep you updated on events as they unfold.
