Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Family owned Cuttaway Hill Estate is cradled in the cool climate wine region of the Southern Highlands. It was established in 1997 by the O'Neil family on the side of Cuttaway Hill outside the townships of Mittagong and Bowral in Australia.

All vineyard sites are at an altitude above 650m and predominantly north-facing, providing good sunlight exposure for most of the daylight hours. The undulating slopes of the Highlands region offer good air drainage, particularly for Cuttaway Hill, minimising the risk of spring frosts. Traditional harvest dates for this premium cool climate region are generally mid March through to mid May.

Cuttaway Hill wines are made entirely from grapes grown in the Southern Highlands and each vineyard provides a unique character that gives the wine lover a true taste of the Southern Highlands in a glass. As a national and international award winning winery, Cuttaway Hill is building a strong reputation as a quality producer. Their range of premium quality table wines artfully blending traditional and new world wine styles include classic varieties that are fruit driven and full flavoured with cool climate complexity.
