Hunter history reveals early taste for Australia’s wines

A book covering the history of the Hunter Valley’s vineyards and winemakers is to be launched at the University of Newcastle in late September.

The book—Hunter Wine: A history—traces six generations of wine producers over 190 years, from the first vineyards planted in 1828 to the Hunter’s present reputation as one of Australia’s most important wine regions. 

It is the result of a four-year research project by Newcastle sociologist John Germov and wine historian Julie McIntyre. The project was funded by the Australian Research Council, the Newcastle Museum and the Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association.
