Fairview Wines is a boutique vineyard located on the outskirts of Australia's famous Hunter Valley Wine Region. Fairview has spectacular views overlooking the Hunter River to the Mountain Range at Stanhope. The Vineyard and Cellar Door are operated by owners Kate and Greg Searles, who have a great respect for the land, the environment and their consumers. Pests are controlled biologically wherever possible, disease is largely controlled by preventative measures and the soil is improved by mulching with hay, cover crops and worm juice. The vineyard has 6 acres under vine and 3 acres of olives. The wines are hand made by the renowned and highly successful winemaker, Rhys Eather from fruit grown on the Fairview Wines vineyard.

All our grapes are picked by hand, allowing us to reject any fruit that does not reach our quality standard. The property has had an colourful history. The original farm house was Read more »
