Braidwood Estate, NSW Nerriga Rd, Braidwood NSW 2622
Braidwood is the first entire town to be listed on the NSW State Heritage Register. Our beautiful vineyard is surrounded by forest, high up in the Durran Durra ranges ten minutes from town along the historic Old Wool Road. The combination of altitude (700m), four distinct seasons, and varied soil types ensures unique wines of distinct character. We are proudly family owned and operated.
Half Moon Winery, NSW 196 Half Moon Rd, Mongarlowe NSW 2622
Our pocket-sized vineyard is tucked away in a wildlife reserve in Braidwood, NSW. The vineyard is both rocky and steeply sloped and the local climate is often challenging. Half Moon’s terrain coupled with our philosophy of minimal mechanisation and chemical use results in a very hands-on approach to tending and harvesting. We have a small team – vineyard managers Mal and Jenny Sharp, owners Tony and Robyn Maxwell, vineyard consultant David Botting and winemaker Alex McKay. Our single-minded focus is to produce fine quality, hand-crafted wines in small batches.
