Granite Hills is more than a vineyard; it's a story of determination, vision, and a family's unwavering dedication to the land.
In the late 1960s, Gordon Knight, a fourth-generation grazier, faced the challenges of declining sheep farming returns. Fearless and forward-thinking, Gordon took a monumental gamble by selling a portion of his cherished farmland to establish a vineyard.
In 1970, the first vines were planted, and the legacy began. In 1979, after four years of studying Wine Science at Wagga and a year working in the wine industry, Gordon and Heather's son Llew returned home to work in the family business.
Today, under the guidance of Llew and Andrea Knight, and the support of a small, dedicated team, Granite Hills has entered a new era of winemaking excellence, carrying forward the family tradition and ensuring the legacy continues.
