Ernest Hill Wines is situated at the gateway to the Hunter Valley's famous Pokolbin District.
The Vineyard was originally planted in the late 1960's, early 1970's by Harry Tulloch for Seppelts Wines and was later renamed the Pokolbin Creek Vineyard. The Wilson Family purchased the hill top part of the vineyard in 1999 and renamed it Ernest Hill Vineyard. The front vineyard is 16 acres (6 hectares) and has four varieties of white grapes - semillon, chardonnay, verdelho and traminer and two red varieties - shiraz and tempranillo. This is supplemented by 8 acres (3.2 hectares) of shiraz, merlot and chardonnay leased from the next door vineyards at the back of Ernest Hill.
