Tulloch’s has donated wine for us to use as gifts for our invited speakers. They are also providing red, white and sparkling wine for the Welcome to ANZCA cocktail event on Wednesday.
The Tulloch story began in 1895 when Branxton General Store owner John Younie Tulloch accepted a 43 acre property in Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley as the settlement of a debt.
Taking an immediate liking to the property and the 5 acres of neglected Shiraz vines it contained, he set about rejuvenating the vineyard and so began the proud tradition that continues today. Tulloch continues to be regarded as an iconic Hunter producer, ensuring they remain a must see destination within the Hunter Valley producing wine styles for all generations.
