Our priority is to produce the best estate and single vineyard examples of each variety under the different tier labels and offer them to our wine club members first.

Our opulent cellar door is the perfect place to enjoy that unique taste which only the Hunter Valley and our award winning wines can provide.

LEOGATE ESTATE WINES
Leogate Estate is a sustainable estate at the foot of the Brokenback Ranges in Australia’s oldest wine producing region, the Hunter Valley.
First planted in the 1970s by “one of the founding fathers of the modern Australian wine industry”, Len Evans AO OBE, current custodians Bill and Vicki Widin bought the original 50-hectare under vine Brokenback Vineyard in 2008. Bill and Vicki were former Angus producers in the Tamworth district at ‘Middlebrook Park’. They have used their own knowledge and experience on the land, along with the expertise of others such as senior winemaker Mark Woods, to reinvigorate the property and build the successful wine brand they are known for today.
The Widins and senior winemaker, Mark Woods, have presided over international accolades including the IWC Trophy for Best New Wine, wines poured in Qantas First and Business class over the past five years, and various medals have been awarded on the national wine show circuit for their prestigious wines.
In eleven years of business, Bill and Vicki have driven significant expansion including establishing a winery, cellar door, restaurant and function centre and in later years acquiring a certified organic, high altitude, 25-year-old vineyard in the Central Ranges, NSW.
Bill and Vicki have also developed a global presence through developing strong relationships with distributors in China, UK and USA. James Halliday’s 2020 Australian Wine Companion gave Leogate Estate a red 5-Star Winery rating for the ninth year in a row.
