At Chalkers Crossing they focus on producing premium quality cool climate wines with grapes sourced from the Hilltops Region. They planted their first vines in late-1997 and made their first wines in March 2000. Rockleigh Vineyard, just 5km south of Young in the Hilltops Region of New South Wales, was a neglected plum orchard when it was acquired by Chalkers Crossing. The orchard was converted to a modern 10ha vineyard in late-1997 The red sandy loam soils of the Hilltops Region were recognised long ago as prime land for growing. The combination of fertile soils, reliable rainfall and a Mediterranean continental climate makes the Hilltops Region ideal for growing premium quality grapes for wine production. Chalkers Crossing wine varieties include Riesling, Semillon, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon produced from grapes grown in their vineyard, and Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay produced from grapes grown for them in the Tumbarumba Region of New South Wales. All of other wines are made at the Chalkers Crossing Winery on the Grenfell Road in Young. Their winemaker, Celine Rousseau, was the 2002 QANTAS Young Australian Winemaker of the Year. Celine was born in Paris and trained in Bordeaux. Her skills and experience are reflected in the exceptional quality of the Chalkers Crossing wines. Our Opening Hours are Monday – Thursday 9.30am to 4.30pm & Friday 9.30am to 2.00pm
