The government records for 1886 show a wine-grape harvest of 950 gallons (4275 litres) for the Berrima district, suggesting the first vineyards were planted in the 1870s. (Table grapes had been established earlier in that decade.) German vineyard workers from the Vogt family came from vineyards at Camden to establish plantings on Joadja Road in the 1890s, which remained in cultivation for a considerable time thereafter. Yet further vineyards were planted around the turn of the century, leading to exports to Europe.
