Our charming 1889 circa sandstone cellar door was originally built by a Scotsman named Allan on a property adjoining the old ‘Kirkton’ Vineyard at Lower Belford. The old ‘Kirkton’ was the Hunter Valley’s first vineyard and was planted by James Busby in 1831. The MacDougall family, then owners of Pokolbin Estate Vineyard, were anxious to preserve such a historic part of the Hunter’s heritage. In 1978, the MacDougall’s purchased the cottage and moved it to its present site. The reconstruction was painstakingly carried out by a master stonemason, who molded the bricks and appointed every stone to reproduce it to its original design. The floor is made from the original internal walls, while all doors and window frames have been copied from the sole surviving original doorway, located at the front of the building. It is perhaps appropriate that a significant aspect of the Hunter’s early settlement is now located in the midst of one of Australia’s premium wine growing areas – the Pokolbin district in the Hunter Valley. In 1987, John Hindmarsh and Richard Friend purchased Pokolbin Estate Vineyard. Since then, the grounds have been progressively landscaped and the current wine range developed. Read less
