The Draytons are known as one of the pioneer families of the wine growing industry in the Hunter Valley. There is over 150 years of continuous family winemaking to draw upon and there is a serious precedent with six generations of grape growers and winemakers.
Positioned in the bustling heart of the Hunter Valley in the busy Pokolbin tourist hub, Draytons Family Wines are synonymous with tradition and heritage within the wine growing area. Located on Oakey Creek Road, Drayton’s enjoys a prime position in the tourist mecca.
Draytons Wine Types
Shiraz and Semilllon are of course the dominant varieties produced, but Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Verdelho have also proved popular to the faithful.
The Draytons Family Wine portfolio is derived across several core brandings – Oakey Creek, New Generation, Hunter Valley, Vineyard Reserve, Limited release and additional cellar door style products.
The winery has embraced modern technology and state of the art equipment while adhering to time honored practices established by generations of growers and producers. An almost sixth sense for harvest times has been useful with heat wave and rain drenched vintages of late.

Bright red/purple colour. Sweet vanilla oak and ripe berry aroma, clean and fresh. The acidity is rather shrill and the tannins faintly grippy, but it has flesh and softness and genuine depth. Supple texture. Worth cellaring.
