‘Brangayne’ came into the Hoskins Family in the 1930s, and for sixty years, Edgar and Winsome Hoskins and later Don and Pamela Hoskins grew apples, pears, peaches and cherries on the property. Then, in 1994, the fruit trees were replaced by wine grapes. The vineyard today is managed by David Hoskins. Located on the high altitude north eastern slopes of the extinct volcano Mount Canobolas, near Orange. Local winemaker Simon Gilbert has worked with the Hoskins family for a number of years and understands the vineyards and the marginal climatic conditions to deliver quality Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The vintage dependent "Tristan" Cabernet Shiraz Merlot blend is one to look out for in the good years.
