In Food & Beverages

The first Fully Certified Biodynamic/Organic vineyard in the Hunter Valley producing beautiful wines, olives, & garlic - we drink to our and your health!

Our passion is making beautiful wine grown Biodynamically to harvest the unique flavours of the Hunter Valley.

Ross McDonald:

"Derice and I started Macquariedale back in the early 1990’s as an escape out of the Sydney corporate world. We began our dream with an acre or so of Shiraz and Chardonnay on a property close to the Hunter River at Branxton. From those early steps a fully Certified Organic/Biodynamic vineyard has evolved at Sweetwater Rd, Rothbury, in the Lower Hunter winegrowing region.

The vineyards now comprise of approximately 15ha which are home to outstanding Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Semillon, Chardonnay and Verdelho. We also have a small plot of Pinot Noir which gets added to our Emma’s Bubbles and as a single variety Pinot. Derice, our children and I have immersed ourselves in country life and live sustainably producing olives and olive oil and beef cattle, as well as growing vegetables and many varieties of fruit.

In our small sustainable winery we follow a natural winemaking passion specialising converting small parcels of grapes into the most delicious natural wines available in Australia.

We developed a Wine Club – Savour Life Club – to be able to share our wines with Members who also love beautiful wine and appreciate sustainable life. Our wines can also be sourced through independent specialty bottleshops and fine local restaurants."
