The definitive guide to Australian Wines
One of the most successful family wineries, a humble operation for the first 110 years of its life that has grown out of all recognition over the past 40. Vat 1 Semillon is one of the most dominant wines in the Australian show system, and Vat 47 Chardonnay is one of the pacesetters for this variety. It has an awesome portfolio of single vineyard Semillons released when 5-6 years old. Its estate plantings are over 116ha in the Hunter Valley, 15ha in the Limestone Coast and 26ha in Heathcote. A founding member of Australia's First Families of Wine. Exports to all major markets.

English immigrant Edward Tyrrell established Tyrrell’s Wines in 1858 in the lee of the Hunter Valley’s Brokenback Range, New South Wales. This land has become recognised as home to some of the Hunter Valley region’s finest vineyards, and the basis for development of one of Australia’s most successful privately owned wine companies.
Today, Tyrrell’s are a truly national wine company; premium vineyards extend from their legendary home in the Hunter Valley to other distinguished grape growing regions of Australia including Limestone Coast in South Australia and Heathcote in Victoria.
Fourth generation family member and Managing Director, Bruce Tyrrell heads this winemaking company that boasts well established, popular and highly recognisable wine brands that are exported to over 30 countries worldwide. His children, the fifth generation of the Tyrrell family, are involved in the family business, illustrating that this iconic Hunter Valley winery will continue to be Australian owned well into the future
