Overview of Catherine Vale Vineyard

Established: 1993
Winemaker: John Hordern and Iain Hayes
Annual Cases: 1500
Region: Hunter Valley
Bill and Wendy Lawson established Catherine Vale Vineyard in 1993. Original plantings took place in October of that year. Semillon and Chardonnay grapes were planted on 3 different rootstocks. These 2 white varieties grow extremely well in the Hunter Valley. Verdelho and the Italian Red varieties Dolcetto and Barbera were planted in 1998.

Verdelho flourishes in this sub-region of the Hunter and has grown in popularity. The grape variety was originally used to make the fortified wine Madeira but Australian winemakers have pioneered it's development as a dry white table wine. Catherine Vale produces both a tablewine and a Madeira.

Bill and Wendy decided in 1998 after much research to add the Piemonte Red grape varieties Barbera and Dolcetto to the growing vineyard. Own rooted cuttings and rootstock cuttings were planted after callusing. All rootstocks were grafted by Wendy over several years . This was due to the wine market becoming more red oriented.

After a visit to the Piemonte region in 2006 Bill and Wendy decided to graft Arneis "The Little Rascal" onto existing Chardonnay vines. The 2010 vintage saw the first Catherine Vale Arneis produced. The variety has performed very well at Catherine Vale with 4 vintages having now been picked. Catherine Vale is the only producer of Arneis and Dolcetto in the Hunter Valley.
