The Hilltops region is one of Australia’s most exciting wine regions. Situated in the Murray-Darling Basin around the towns of Young, Boorowa and Harden, the Hilltops is fast gaining recognition as a consistent producer of ultra-premium wine.
This region has a continental climate, with cool winters and rain falling predominantly in the winter, autumn and spring months. The summer's hot dry days but cool nights provide ideal ripening conditions, distinguishing the Hilltops from many other renowned viticultural regions in Australia.
In recent times the Hilltops has become recognised as one of Australia’s leading Shiraz regions. Consequently it has attracted the attention of leading wineries from other regions, including Clonakilla, Eden Road and Hungerford Hill, who are all sourcing Hilltops fruit for their Shiraz.
