Maygars Hill Winery 20 acre property was acquired by Jenny Houghton in 1994, for its viticulture potential and as a location for her bed and breakfast cottage. Three acres were hand planted in 1997 into a light sandy loam. It is ideally situated in the Strathbogie wine region of Victoria's Goulburn Murray Waters, right on the border with the Goulburn Valley.

Planting has since then increased to 6 acres; 2 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and 4 acres of Shiraz. Strict viticultural policy with pruning, spraying and hand picking has achieved the required low yield per vine. This has consistently produced small berries of intense colour and flavour.

The altitude of 200 metres, combined with the light sandy loam and intensive monitoring, has produced grapes that enable a wine of elegance and complexity to be produced.

The property is named after Lt Col Maygar who was awarded the Victoria Cross in the Boer War in 1901. Ask owner Jenny Houghton about him - it is a fascinating story about a brave young man.
