OUR STORY

FROM DALWOOD WINES TO GEORGE WYNDHAM

For more than 190 years George Wyndham™ has set the benchmark for quality Australian wines and since the 1880s has been proudly recognised as an industry pioneer for its wine exports.

GEORGE WYNDHAM OPENS DALWOOD

English immigrant George Wyndham began this important page in Australia’s winemaking history in 1828 when he established Dalwood along the Hunter River in New South Wales.

FIRST VINES PLANTED

The first vines were planted in 1830 and five years later Dalwood Wines, as it was then known, released its first vintage to rave reviews.

GEORGE PROMOTES AUSTRALIAN WINES INTERNATIONALLY

By the mid-1800s he was exporting to England and India. George Wyndham led the way in promoting the fledging Australian wine industry, showing Dalwood Wines in the Great Expositions of Europe and the USA. The Hunter Valley wines secured an array of international medals, and in the process helped the Australian wine industry develop a reputation for high standards and exceptional quality.

1887

DALWOOD WINES BECOMES WYNDHAM ESTATE

Despite his death in 1887 at age 53, Dalwood Wines continue to flourish and was renamed Wyndham Estate in 1970 to honour George Wyndham’s memorable achievements. The name was changed again in 2015 to George Wyndham™ to celebrate the man who pioneered Australian Shiraz.
