KV wines are an authentic reflection of
the place the grapes are grown. Far
from being an “international” style,
they faithfully express their local
terroir. Our wines are well-suited to
modern cuisine, with dry rosés, unique
premium reds and fruit-driven whites.
We have a very small family vineyard
and winery where we grow grapes,
make wine, bottle, label and pack it

Buying our wines
You can buy our wines in the online
cellar door, by visiting the vineyard, or
at select restaurants and bottleshops in
the Newcastle area.
Our Pioneer Series of reserve wines are
only available to our mailing list or
wine club members.
The range of KV wines
We have two ranges of “KV” wines : Vins Familial (classic Hunter
Valley single varietals), and Vins des Pionnières (limited premium
blends and unique wines).
We have been inspired by the great dry and savoury rosés from
France, so rosés are our speciality. Currently we make a light Merlot
Rosé, a fuller-bodied Cabernet Rosé, and a more textured Shiraz Rosé.
To satisfy our passion for complex old wines we make premium red
blends from a unique range of grapes: Barbera, Cabernet Franc,
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Shiraz and Tempranillo.
All our wines are made with a mix of new-world and old-world styles.
New-world cool fermentations and anti-oxidative handling emphasise
the fruit flavours. Old-world ageing and finishing provide long-lasting
wines with a complementary savoury character.
Elegant Rosés and Premium Reds

variety Semillon, Verdelho,

Vins des Pionnières
