A defining force in the evolution of the Australian wine industry, the McWilliam's story spans 140 years and six consecutive generations of family winemakers. In 1877 Samuel McWilliam planted his first vines in the sunny Riverina region, New South Wales. The vineyard won its first national accolade in 1897. The Hanwood Estate winery was opened by J.J. McWilliam in 1917 and since then McWilliam's has continued to grow in popularity and stature, always retaining the vision and knowledge imparted by its founders. Today, McWilliam's is one of the most recognised and awarded wineries in the history of Australian winemaking. In 2016 alone, McWilliam's earned 10 trophies and 176 medals around the globe, including the prestigious " five red star winery" rating for the third consecutive year by James Halliday's definitive guide to Australian wine -- an honour bestowed upon only the top 3.8% of Australian wineries . The family mantle is now carried by sixth generation winemaker Scott McWilliam, who continues the McWilliam's tradition of sourcing top quality fruit and crafting fine regional wines with a passion and talent for winemaking.
