A boutique vineyard near Bulahdelah with full-flavoured wines.
The Old Inn Road is a boutique vineyard at the foothills of the mountains west of Bulahdelah. Known as the gateway to the Myall Lakes National Park the region is blessed with forested hills and lakes to explore.
Geologically the vineyard lies on a vein of blue metal which, combined with the rich topsoil soil and warm climate provides a unique terroir. Wine made from grapes grown under these conditions is fresh and well structured with generous fruit flavours. Old Inn Road Vineyard does not conform to the conventional cellar door style, but rather offers a mobile cellar door at a selection of farmer markets, trade fairs, local liquor outlets, restaurants and online.
The fresh spring rain, long sunny days and mild dry winters are well suited to particular grape varieties. Verdelho, Chambourcin and Dolcetto grapes are grown and the vineyard area is fully netted to maximise berry quality and protect the fruit from birds.
