Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Benwarin vineyard is situated in Mistletoe Lane, Pokolbin, in the HunterValley.  It was established by Allan and Janneke Bagley in 1999.  The philosophy is to use the best viticulture techniques to produce the best possible fruit, and make good fruit-driven wines which are distinctive and interesting.  We also believe that wine should be accessible and part of everyday life.  Our wines are priced so that they offer a higher quality alternative to commercial wines for everyday drinking.

The site at Mistletoe Lane was chosen because of the soil, good drainage, a variety of aspects, and exposure to breezes. The vineyard was planned and established under the supervision of our viticulturalist, Jenny Bright.  This involved soil testing, selection of the best sites for each variety, soil improvement, putting in the best possible drip irrigation system, and selecting the best clones for the region.  The vineyard comprises approximately 19 hectares (47 acres) of vines.

The varieties grown are mainly the classic well-proven Hunter grapes: Shiraz, Semillon, Verdelho, and Chardonnay.  We also planted some Sangiovese, which is showing good potential in the Hunter, and Chambourcin, as it is well suited to the climate and makes a popular lighter style of red wine.

The vineyard is managed by our vineyard manager, Jim Barry with one objective - quality.  The yield is kept low at less than 2 tonnes per acre by meticulous hand-pruning and crop thinning.  Irrigation is controlled very precisely, using soil moisture probes to ensure that the vines are given exactly the water they need and no more. As we get close to harvest, all unripe and damaged bunches are removed by hand. The result is fruit that is fully and evenly ripe and intensely flavoured.

The wines are made by Jim Chatto, the chief winemaker at First Creek Winemaking Services.  Jim has 10 years of winemaking experience in Europe, Tasmania, and the Hunter.
