In 1853, farmer William Joseph Drayton bid farewell to his native England and arrived in Australia with a dream to become a vigneron and winemaker. William settled in the breathtaking Hunter Valley, producing his first wine in 1860, establishing a family tradition that has been continued on by subsequent generations.

Today, the legendary Drayton name is renowned for producing some of the finest premium wines in Australia. Five generations and more than 155 years after William made the journey from England; his great-great granddaughter Robyn Drayton is the first and only female vigneron in the Drayton family. Robyn grew up on the family estate and has carried on her father's label, Reg Drayton Wines, since her parents were tragically killed in a plane crash in 1994. 2006 marked the first vintage Robyn has carried under her own name, and Robyn and her three sons continue to harvest the vines on the family estate.

Robyn Drayton Wines continue the proud tradition of producing award winning boutique wines. Since 1992, Robyn Drayton Wines has been awarded 15 Trophies, 26 gold, 12 Silver and 29 Bronze Medals on their estate grown Semillon alone and were recently awarded “Best Semillon of the Year” (Twice), with WineState Magazine, an outstanding result given the strong competition from more than 10,000 entries across Australia and New Zealand.

Since 1992 the winery has been awarded 24 Trophies, 41 gold, 49 Silver and 98 Bronze Medals for wines produced from their own 100% Hunter grapes. Robyn's delectable range of hand crafted wines include Reginald Reserve Semillon, Liam Reserve Verdelho, Justin Reserve Chardonnay, Chardonnay Semillon, "Pamela Robyn" Sparkling Chardonnay and Pamela Reserve Rosé (named after her late Mother), “Foreplay” botrytis Semillon referred to by members as “An orgasm in a bottle® "3 Sons" Shiraz ® (Named after her 3 boys), and Taylor Reserve Petit Verdot.
