Margan wines are all Estate Grown and Estate Made in the Broke Fordwich region of the Hunter Valley. The business was established in 1997 and is owned and operated by Lisa and Andrew Margan who are proud to have over 100 hectares of quality vineyards, a state of the art winery and striking cellar door and Margan restaurant as part of their onsite wine tourism operations.
The vineyards consist of low yielding, old vines which make wines of concentration, depth and character. Much of it planted on the ancient Fordwich Sill – a unique plug of red volcanic soil layered over limestone. Andrew Margan handcrafts wines that have regional and varietal definition - wines that are true to the traditions of the region but have their own contemporary personality.
Margan is a red 5 star winery rated by James Halliday Wine Companion for the last 6 consecutive years, as well as being awarded Best Winery at the NSW & Hunter Tourism Awards 2013 and 2014 and Hunter Valley Cellar Door of the year 2013.
