The original plantings date back to 1968 with majority of the vineyard planted in 2000, the Estate has over 86 Hectares under vine and is situated atop a hillside with outstanding views of the surrounding Wollemi and Goulburn River National Parks.
More than just a winery this unique site offers mountain bike trails, camping facilities and the undulating Ridge Walk, more importantly though (from a wine lovers point of view) is the surrounding 250 acres of vineyard that provides the home base for James Estate grape supply.

From this commanding position, the winery and cellar door offer the best vantage point to witness the change of seasons as the vineyard bursts into life in Spring, is harvested in Summer, turns golden brown in Autumn and is pruned in Winter. Tastings are available daily between 10am – 4.30pm – let our knowledgeable staff walk you through our extensive and highly awarded wines as you unwind and take in the spectacular setting and view.
