Somervaille Estate was a foundation member of the Central Highlands Grapegrowers Association (now ORVA), centred on Orange; the vineyard is on the Belubula River, near Carcoar. David Somervaille was the chairman of partners of the national law firm Blake Dawson Waldron. Like myself, he is a self-taught winemaker, his early experience with wine coming through his participation in a partnership which operated the Oakdale Vineyard (now Audrey Wilkinson) in the Hunter Valley (which was sold in 1980). Wines are available in small quantities by mail order and cellar door.
This winery is now closed.
