Meerea Park was established with our first vintage release in 1991, and celebrated 25 years in 2016.
An 1826 land-grant to the Eather family at the mid-Hunter hamlet of Bulga was a pastoral and mixed farming endeavor, including table grapes until Chardonnay wine grapes were introduced in 1989. Rhys Eather, a Roséworthy Agricultural College graduate in Oenology is the winemaker and an owner, and has been responsible for the winemaking since 1991. Rhys has worked several vintages overseas in France and Italy.
Meerea Park specializes in individual vineyard Hunter Valley Semillon and Shiraz, but also makes Chardonnay as well as a selection of Hunter Valley grown alternative varieties. Hunter Valley Semillon and Shiraz is blended with wines from emerging New South Wales wine regions, referred to as the Vintner range.
