NIMBIN VALLEY DAIRY

Nimbin Valley Dairy is located just outside Nimbin in the Northern Rivers region of NSW.  Kerry and Paul have been farming there for nearly 12 years and making goat and cow milk cheeses and yogurts for about half that time.Both Kerry and Paul grew up on dairies in the region and both come from long lines of dairy farming families, in excess of 5 generations as far as they can trace.

Initially they started with goats that  had been purchased as weed eaters.  They did such a great job of controlling weeds (a constant problem in high rainfall areas with fertile soils) that when a local dairy goat herd came up for sale they bought it, and added it to there existing cow dairy.

Initially they started making simple fresh goat cheeses and some marinated cheeses, that are still sold through local farmers markets. Distributors and restaurants were still wanting access to their cheeses so they started making a range of cow milk cheeses.  This was the beginning of their White Cow, Smooth Cow, Blue Cow and Washed Cow.

In May 2015 they took over Byron Bay Cheese Company and Byron Bay Butter Company. All cheeses are hand made on the farm at Nimbin, using the fresh milk daily to make a  wide range of goat and cow cheses, milk and kefir and yogurt.  Cheese are distributed from Cairns to Sydney and they attend  9 farmers markets a week.

ZEST BYRON BAY

About 11 years ago Bay Seafood, Byron Bay’s local fish store, wanted to expand its retail options for their regular customers. So Satise a dedicated staff member introduced his inherited flavours of Nepal to the shelves.

When friends introduced the flavours to us 5 years ago, Pob the chef and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a family business that could sustain our lifestyle and community living in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales. Starting with the Zest Byron Bay Spice Pastes, Pob slowly developed the Curry Blends whilst testing the flavours amongst friends, local retailers and markets until we were ready to dedicate our time to expanding and sharing our gluten free flavours across Australia.

ROBERT OATLEY WINES

Robert Oatley Vineyards is the reincarnation of the Oatley family winemaking dynasty.

Wine is ‘in the blood’ of founder Bob Oatley and his eldest son Sandy, leaders of the family business founded upon a four decade passion for grape growing, wine making and marketing – the combination of which has seen the Oatley family rise to the top of the Australian winemaking scene.

STONE AND WOOD

Born and raised in Byron Bay, we take a fresh approach to brewing handcrafted beer in the Northern Rivers of NSW, one of the greatest places on Earth.

We established Stone & Wood Brewing Company in 2008. The three boys – Brad, Jamie and Ross had spent many years working in the beer business. The dream was to quit ‘working for the man’, shed the corporate garbage and get back to basics.

As the original brewers of the Northern Rivers, we built our first brewery here at the eastern tip of Australia, in a part of the world where people enjoy having a beer when relaxing after catching a wave, catching a band at the pub or just catching up with friends. It’s that sort of place.

We brew beer for times like these. Beers that the locals, those passing through the town and the growing number of drinkers who appreciate good beer, and of course ourselves, would find simply good to drink.

SEVEN HILL, CLARE VALLEY

HUNTER VALLEY

The original planting of ten acres of Semillon was planted at Mount View in 1971 with the intention of supplying the nearby McWilliams Mount Pleasant Winery with grapes.

Over the next few years this was expanded to forty acres and we included other grape varieties: Chardonnay; Viognier; Verdelho, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Back Block Shiraz which is our most famous Hunter Valley wine.

The Hunter Valley is where our only Winemaking facility is located. Chief Winemaker, Gary Reed has been with us since our first Vintage in 1981. Assistant Winemaker, Michael Hudson calls brother to Jamie - our Vineyard Manager in Mudgee. Jamie has been working with us for almost 25 years.

Since our humble beginnings on a hilltop in Mount View we now have two cellar doors in the Hunter Valley. Our original Cellar Door at Mount View is still ever popular with our long standing loyal customers; we are now also conveniently located in the heart of Pokolbin on Broke Road.

ARMIDALE - New England, Australia

Petersons Wines Armidale is located in the South East of Armidale in New England. The vineyard is located on a rich, red brown basalt hill facing to the north east, and is planted with Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Our first harvest was in 2002.

As Armidale is a cool climate area, we expect very high fruit quality for many years, weather permitting. After a lot of research into climatic conditions, we do anticipate some problems with vineyard management, but have established a specially designed trellis to avoid frost damage. This should enable us to maximise fruit ripening through increased sunlight exposure within the canopy. In addition, overhead sprinklers offer a back-up in case of severe frosts.

With the beautiful 1911 built Guesthouse in Armidale, you won’t need much more convincing to come and join us for a drink.
