Named after a 14th Century warrior prince, Tamburlaine Wines is situated in the rolling foothills of the Brokenback Range, at Pokolbin, in the heart of the Hunter Valley wine country. 1966 was the birth year of Tamburlaine's Pokolbin Vineyard ~ one of the first Hunter 'Boutique' production vineyards producing quality warm climate wines.
In 1997, 100 hectares of grapes were planted in Orange to introduce cool climate varieties to further enhance the Tamburlaine range. Tamburlaine is one of the first wineries in Australia to adopt an environmental management system and today practises organic growing methods and organic wine production.
Tamburlaine's entire Hunter Valley vineyard and Orange vineyard are managed organically to Australian Certified Organic standards and audited by the Biological Farmers of Australia. In addition, from the 2006 vintage, the Tamburlaine winery is a fully-certified Organic Wine Processor.
Tamburlaine winemaking finds a comfortable balance between creativity and science. Our winemakers are professionals with a commitment to the best of modern technology with respect to the great traditions of the Hunter. The top wine commentators of Australia recognise the standards achieved by the winery team including James Halliday rating the winery 5 stars. Tamburlaine wines, in the words of the editor of Winestate Magazine 'reflect that certain richness that is distinctively Hunter Valley, while possessing an innovative style'.
Each Tamburlaine vintage is unique, with fruit sourced from their vineyards in the Hunter Valley and Orange Highlands. From there, attention to detail in the winery is of paramount importance to the winemakers to produce the best results possible in the bottle. Tamburlaine wines are flavoursome and approachable when young, yet have a fine pedigree of aging. Whether you are looking for a classic Hunter Semillon, Chardonnay, Verdelho and Shiraz or enjoy exciting cool country wines like Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, please come and experience our hospitality at the winery.
