Since the Eastham family purchased the Mayfield Vineyard in 2021, the commitment to producing the region’s best wines has been renewed. Driven by viticulturist and co-owner Charles Simons, a great deal of work has been conducted in the vineyard to ensure the new wines reflect the unique qualities of this historic property.
The Mayfield Vineyard was planted in 1999. Located on the eastern slopes of the ancient and extinct volcano, Mount Canobolas, we have 17 hectares of vines that sit at an elevation of 880 to 950 metres above sea level.
Our varieties include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling.
From a viticulturist perspective, we strive for low-intervention grape growing and wine-making practices. We aim to utilise Mother Nature at every step of the growing season and believe that good canopy management is vital in producing cool climate wines that stand out from the rest.
