Martins Hill Organic Wines is a NASAA certified organic vineyard, Organic Vigneron and owner Michael Sweeney planted the first vines in 1985, more vines were added to the vineyard in 2000. Over the past 3 years we have planted Riesling additional Pinot Noir and a Shiraz block has been planted on the slopes of the southwestern side of Martins Hill. These vines have all come from our library rows.
