Meerea Park is owned by the Eather family. We handcraft our wines using fruit grown on some of the Hunter Valley's best vineyard sites that have a track record for producing the best possible grapes in both good and not so good vintages.
We are Hunter Valley "terroirists"; specializing in individual vineyard Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz, sourced from unique vineyard sites, each being quite different, the wines expressing clearly where they are from. We also make classic Hunter Valley wines from the French varieties, Marsanne, Roussanne, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaker, Rhys Eather is a Roseworthy (Adelaide University) graduate in Wine Science and has gained international winemaking experience in France and Italy. Spending the 1998 vintage at M. Chapoutier in the Rhone Valley gave Rhys the experience and insight required to craft top quality Rhone styled wines, which he openly admits as to having a great passion for. Rhys has also completed two vintages in Italy (Puglia and Piedmonte) rounding out his international winemaking experience.
Meerea Park, while taking a modern approach to winemaking, can trace our winemaking roots in the Hunter Valley back to the 1850's when Alexander Munro, our great-great-grandfather established the 'Bebeah' vineyard at Singleton and was at one stage the largest and most successful winemaker in New South Wales. During his winemaking career he amassed over 2000 awards at wine shows around the world.
Meerea Park has established a reputation over the last decade as one of the leading wine producers in the Hunter Valley winning at least one Gold medal at every Hunter Valley wine show from 2002 - 2014, a feat only enjoyed by a handful of the Hunter Valley's best producers.
We are also a TOP 100 Australian Winery rated by James Halliday and hold the prestigious 5 Red Star and Red Name Rating in the James Halliday Wine Companion.
Wine show success has been enjoyed at a national and international level and we have received a multitude of accolades emphasizing high quality and exceptional value for money for our range of wines.
