The Allandale Winery was established in the late - 1970s and the history of this wine estate is particularly inspiring. The winery creates wines using their own select vineyards that are located in the wine regions of McLaren Vale, Hunter Valley, Hilltops, Mudgee, Hastings Valley and Orange Region of Australia. Since the winery has been established, there have only ever been two winemakers. Bill Sneddon started his career at Allandale in 1983, and went on to become the Chief Winemaker in the year 1986. Under his supervision, Allandale produced hundreds of elegant award - winning wines vintage - after - vintage. All the wines manufactured at Allandale are created on site using state - of - the - art technology and equipment. These excellent quality wines are renowned and applauded for their flavour profile and varietal elements the world over.
