Kurrajong Vineyard is owned by Desmond and Susan Young. We live on the boundary of Belford and Pokolbin, part of Australia’s oldest wine region - the Hunter Valley. We have a very small vineyard and winery, but we have a big passion for our wines. Our wines are made from our own grapes and some of our neighbours on our road. Our other big passion is kangaroos, and we are part of a wildlife rescue organisation that seeks to rescue, rehabilitate and release injured native wildlife. We specialise in kangaroos and wallabies.

Our philosophy on wine

We want to make and drink wines that are of the highest quality possible, as authentic to their region as possible, and as natural as possible. We are not minimalist winegrowers or winemakers, we work hard to marry new-world techniques and old-world experience to produce wines that are a high quality, true representation of the terroir of the vineyards. Our actions in the vineyard and winery are as naturall organic and sustainable as we can manage. We use equipment and buy materials that minimise our consumption of resources and emission of waste products. For more information see our Wines and our Vines pages.

Our philosophy on wildlife

Mankind should learn to live in harmony with, and share the planet with native wildlife - it was here first after all. Our survival as a species depends upon a diversity of life on our planet, it is bio-diversity that gives it resilience to diseases and natural disasters. We need to give a special care to our national icons in particular, the emu, koala, and kangaroo. The one think we have learned raising and rehabilitating wildlife is how much individual personality each animal has, how much they love and care for each other, and as mammals like us, how similar they are to us. All of us deserve a fair chance at a good life, if you find injured wildlife please call a rescue organisation.
