Foate's Ridge was founded in 1991 with the purchase of farm land in Fordwich, five minutes from the township of Broke in the Lower Hunter Valley of New South Wales.

The first 5 acres of Chardonnay was planted in 1992 and the first vintage of Foate's Ridge Chardonnay made in 1994. A further 5 acres of Chardonnay, as well as 5 acres of Verdelho, were planted in 1995. The first vintage from these new blocks was in 1997.

During 2000, 6 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and 1 acre of Merlot were planted on the red volcanic slope. The Merlot plantings were extended by a further 5 acres in 2001.

A country style house with encircling verandahs, was erected near the top of the ridge, giving unimpeded views over the whole vineyard, including the mountains to the south and the valley to both the east and west.
