At Thistle Hill we have never followed trends because since the beginning, our vineyard has been a trend-setter. In 1975 we made a commitment to organic and sustainable farming practices long before it was popular; and for over four decades we have maintained a standard of wine making unprecedented for the cost per bottle we offer our products both nationally and abroad.

Though the vineyard has enjoyed several owners over the years, the current owners Rob and Mary Loughan and Anthony and Lisa Boys, have created enough space for our wine maker, Tim White, to push the boundaries of what is possible in organic farming. Though new to Thistle Hill, you can taste the fruits of Tim’s innovative practices in every new bottle of our award winning wine.

Tim White is Thistle Hill’s award-winning winemaker and owner of The Hill’s self-appointed ruler, protector and mascot, Thurston, a Jack Russell cross.  Originating from the Northern Beaches of Sydney, "Dr" Tim has a Wine Science degree from Charles Sturt University on the back of a Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of New South Wales.  Tim has spent many years working in NSW wine growing areas and abroad, has a real passion for Mudgee wine and loves calling Mudgee "Home".

 

Tim enjoys taking photographs around Mudgee, catching and cooking local produce, or just relaxing down by the river with friends; he is involved in the technical group, the Mudgee Wine Association, which is testament to his skill across the district.

Tim believes that Organic wine highlights the true character of the grape, without the additives commonly found in commercial wines. He is often heard talking passionately about the vibrancy and life abundant in Thistle Hill's organic vineyard.  When you visit, you can see that for yourself!
