Description

Nicholson River Winery was established in 1978 and is owned and operated by Juliet and Ken Eckersley.

They make small quantities of speciality wines intended to be enjoyed with food. Varieties include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah , Sangiovese and Merlot Cabernets. There are also sparkling, botrytis and preservative-free wines. The styles are more European than traditional Australian.

The setting is picturesque with a commanding view of the Nicholson River and rolling hills.

Platters of local cheese and antipasto are available. The Barrel Room Restaurant will open for lunches from December 2019.

Nicholson River's Chardonnay is considered by many to be one of Australia's greatest Chardonnays. There is also an excellent Pinot Noir that is definitely worth trying.
