The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Steve Skidmore and Deidre Broad created the Molly's Cradle brand concept in 1997, moving to reality with the first planting of estate vines in 2000, the first vintage following in '02. They have 2ha each of verdelho, chardonnay, merlot and shiraz, plus 1ha of petit verdot, but also look to other regions to supplement the estate-grown grapes. Exports to China

Molly's Cradle is a privately owned family company, 100% Australia. Proudly owned and operated by the Skidmore family, the brand was built on a simple philosophy – from the best grapes, comes the best wines. Although we call the Hunter Valley home, Molly's Cradle also has vineyard interests in some of Australia's most prestigious wine growing regions including - the Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills, Langhorne Creek and The Pyrenees, allowing us to provide our customers with a true multi regional selection of wines.
