The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Andrew Margan, following in his late father's footsteps, entered the wine industry over 20 years ago, working as a Flying Winemaker in Europe, then for Tyrrell's. The growth of the Margan Family business over the following years has been the result of unremitting hard work and a keen understanding of the opportunities Australia's most visited wine region provides. They have won innumerable awards in the tourism sector, against competition in the Hunter Valley, across NSW, and Australia-wide. The next generation will be able to cover all bases when their parents retire. Eldest son Ollie is finishing a double degree in winemaking and viticultural science at the University of Adelaide; daughter Alessa is studying communications at UTS while working in wine and food PR, and younger son James is enrolled in economics at Sydney University. Andrew has continued to push the envelope in the range of wines being made, without losing focus on the varieties that have made the Hunter famous. He began the development with barbera in 1998, and since then has progressively planted mourvedre, albarino, tempranillo and graciano. Exports to the UK, Germany, Norway, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong and China.

Margan WineryWines that speak for themselves. Andrew Margan's minimalist approach lets the fruit quality shine through. The wines are contemporary, the winemaking progressive.The winery has been built to handle up to 1000 tonnes of fruit using the best equipment available to make wines of outstanding varietal definition.Oak is used only where necessary to enhance the complexity of the wine. The goal is to produce wines that are ready to drink upon release, match perfectly with food and have optimum cellaring potential.By maintaining the current size, Andrew controls the product from his own vineyards to the bottle ensuring he produces wines of consistency and quality. All Margan wines are estate-grown estate-made.Margan is the only Hunter Valley Winery to be fully accredited with Entwine Australia (WFA) for it’s environmental stewardship.
Hand-crafted wines from hand-worked vines with an unfailing dedication to quality and innovation. Iconic varieties of semillon and shiraz, with Hunter Valley shiraz being recognised as one of the great wine styles of the world. Also the less planted merlot and verdelho along with the classic varieties of chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon.Limited Release White Label & Aged WinesThe wines for the Margan White Label range are all made from the Margan single vineyards. In outstanding vintages, Andrew is in a position to make small batches of certain wines that stand out in the winery from the other Margan wines.These batches are often different in style to the other wines and lend themselves to different winemaking techniques. As a result these wines tend to select themselves for separate bottling and marketing under the 'White Label' package.
