The Cricketers Arms range has seen unprecedented growth since its re-launch in 2014 and now has five great brews under its banner; Keepers Lager, Spearhead Pale Ale, Scorcher Summer Ale, Journeyman’s Mid-Strength and Captains IPA.  Proudly brewed in Melbourne – enjoyed everywhere! Well played.

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

At Sevenhill Cellars, the first winery established in South Australia’s Clare Valley,  you can enjoy distinctive, estate-grown wines and experience our notable heritage and spiritual character.

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.

MUDGEE

This vineyard of 100 acres is planted to various red varieties: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Durif, Zinfandel, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Chambourcin. This vineyard boasts some of our more famous red styles such as Glenesk, Ian's Selection, Old Block and Block One. Our whites also do well in Mudgee: Semillon, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Viognier and we now have Marsanne and Sauvignon Blanc.

Petersons are the first Winery to ever win the Mudgee Wine Show Most Outstanding Wine of Show Trophy with a white wine (2008). We won the same trophy for a red wine in 2007.

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.
