About

5th and 6th generation winemakers Simon and Will Gilbert are amongst the vanguard of winemakers in NSW leading the evolution towards more contemporary and modern wines.

Producing wines from their own vineyards in Mudgee, as well as through long-term contracts with vineyards in Orange, Simon and Will make exceptional cool climate wines. High-elevation vineyards, with long sunny days during the growing season result in grapes with exceptional flavour and aroma. With Will taking a more hands-on role in the winery, the style of Gilbert Family Wines has evolved substantially over the past few years, with the winemaking philosophy gearing more and more towards the minimal-intervention approach, and a new range of naturally inclined wines.
