Winburndale winery is located in Bathrust,Central Ranges, New South Wales Explorer Country.

Gold had been discovered in the Bathurst area in 1850. But it was in 1864 that an Italian prospector, Carlo Giuseppe Fontana, discovered gold on the slopes of the hills of Winbourn-Dale. This gold discovery was named Fontana Reef, and the hill Mount Fontana in his memory. It is here that Winburndale Wines planted their vines in 1998.

Winburndale is covered in the remnants of old gold mines. And there is a great affinity between gold and quality wine. It has to do with ancient alluvial soils in shallow layers on the hillsides. These soils are less fertile and the vines are thus less vigorous.
