Credited as the pioneer of the Hilltops wine region, Barwang has forged a reputation for full flavoured wines built up over 40 years of wine production.
The Barwang winery was founded by Peter Robertson, a WW2 Lancaster bomber tail-gunner whom was introduced to wine by his pilot and friend John Seppelt. When Robertson returned from the war he became a sheep and wheat farmer, settling on a farm near Young, NSW.
Robertson then continued in this mode until 1968 when a terrible drought forced him to diversify and re-evaluate. That then lead Robertson to plant grapevines on a corner of his Barwang property (which is now recognised as the first vineyard in the Hilltops wine region). The property was then sold on to Mcwilliams wines in 1989.
When Mcwilliams purchased the Barwang property there was some 12 hectares under vine, which has since built to over 100ha. The vineyard itself is managed sustainably and has been recognised for it's 'green' credentials with a Greenpeace 'GREEN' rating in 2009. More recently, the Barwang label has featured some Tumbarumba wines too, highlighting the potential of the exciting new Tumbarumba wine region
Barwang Wine Types
Historically the highlights of the Barwang range have historically been the Cabernet and the Shiraz, with the Cabernet in particular renowned for intensity and flavour without excess sweetness. These have also been joined by a flagship wine, the '864' Tumbarumba Chardonnay. Beyond these wines, Barwang also produces a Tumbarumba Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris along with a range of 'on premise' restaurant wines under the 'cafe series' name.

Tumbarumba is putting the cool back into cool climate in a big way thanks to it’s elevated vineyards in a secluded pocket of NSW. Fruit from this site is carefully blended with other Pinot Gris fruit from Tasmania and the Adelaide Hills to allow t...
This is a classically styled cool climate Chardonnay with restrained elegant citrus fruit given a lift by some creamy oak treatment. A damn fine wine for a damn fine price.
Like a big, ballsy Cabernet Sauvignon then look no further than this lovely Hilltops wine with its lashings of blackcurrant fruit, full-body and impressive grainy tannins. This drinks beautifully now but will get even better over the next 10 years.
