Wollombi Village Vineyard, in the Lower Hunter Valley of New South Wales, was a project created by husband and wife team Alan and Maria Roe. They purchased the vacant block in the centre of historic Wollombi in 1988 and had visions of doing ‘something' to help create more interest for the tourists that often visit this little town that seems to exist in a virtual time lock.

The first paddock of chardonnay vines planted in October 1996. Shiraz were planted in 1999. The idea was to keep with the traditional Hunter Valley family run vineyards, with the Mediterranean influence from Maria, who is Italian. The vineyard now produces chardonnay, shiraz and rose wines.

September 9th 2006 saw the grand opening of Wollombi Village Vineyard's Cellar Door. Whilst it was expected that lots of cases of wine would be sold, sales were even higher than anticipated, and there were only 4 bottles of their own specialty liqueur limoncielo left. As the Italian family limoncello recipe 'limoncielo di Wollombi' (Italian lemon liqueur) proved so popular, other recipes were added, including dolzetto (fortified wine) both red and white, amaroe which is a bitter-sweet digestive liqueur, and the caffe range of coffee liqueurs.

Open Saturday, Sunday and long weekends only, from 9am – 4pm, with both Alan and Maria usually there, Wollombi Village Vineyard invite you to visit them, in the heart of Wollombi, next door to the tennis court. The cellar door is air conditioned for your comfort.
