Maygars Hill Winery

Victoria | Strathbogie Ranges

Our Review

Jenny Houghton purchased this 8ha property in 1994, planting shiraz (1.9ha) and cabernet sauvignon (1.3ha). The name comes from Lieutenant Colonel Maygar, who fought with outstanding bravery in the Boer War in South Africa in 1901 and was awarded the Victoria Cross. In World War I he rose to command the 8th Light Horse Regiment, winning yet further medals for bravery. The 100th anniversary of Lieutenant Colonel Maygar's death was in 2017. The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, both in Reserve and standard guise, have been consistently excellent for a number of years. Exports to China.
