Sam and Christie Arnaout purchased Hungerford Hill in December 2016, planning to refocus the 50-year-old label on its Hunter Valley origin, also adding significant new Lower Hunter vineyards at Sweetwater and Dalwood, the oldest continuously operating vineyard in Australia (see separate entries). Hungerford Hill will use these vineyards to bolster its Hunter Valley wines while continuing its 20+ year association with the cool-climate Tumbarumba and Hilltops regions. Exports to all major markets.
Arguably the top cellar door property in Australia, located at the gateway to the Hunter Valley, with the Hunter’s top rated restaurant as tenant.
A multi-award winning boutique brand with ell-established range of wines from $25 to $120 RRP and a highly profitable cellar door and wine club. Solid foundation to leverage growth with modest investment in marketing and working capital and an opportunity to capitalise on the owner’s vision.
