Great wine starts with great vines and a connection, and true commitment to the earth that sustains them. At Thistle Hill Vineyard they believe this relationship with the land is at the core of the commitment to quality they are renowned for.
This commitment to “Go Organic” 35 years ago has proven to be a prescient one, and they are proud to carry it on and maybe someday hand it over to their children to do the same. The vineyard is unusual, even in the organic world, because chemical sprays have never been used on the vines. They are as pure as you can get! You truly can taste the difference.
Today, Thistle Hill is one of Australia's best-loved wineries and most well known organic brands. The vineyard was first certified Grade-A organic by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA) in 1993 and has met the certification's stringent testing criteria ever since, making it one of the oldest organic wine labels in Australia and the world.
Thistle Hill has a fully self-contained bed and breakfast cottage, nestled among an established vineyard and olive grove and overlooking the picturesque Erudgere Valley. Visitors to the three-bedroom cottage can enjoy absolute peace and quiet, with native birds in the morning and millions of stars at night.
The cottage offers three double bedrooms, a lounge room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and outdoor entertaining area with a barbeque. It sleeps six comfortably.
