McLeish Estate was established in 1985 when Robert and Maryanne McLeish planted Semillon & Chardonnay on their 16 hectare property on DeBeyers Road, Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley, 163km North of Sydney.

Today, after more than 30 years of producing premium quality warm-climate wines and having been awarded numerous trophies and medals at prestigious wine shows, the McLeish family continues to produce wines that capture the freshness and elegance that Hunter Valley wines are famous for.


In 1995, Bob McLeish and his wife Maryanne opened a cellar door. They have renovated and expanded the wineries facilities on the property.

“I was first influenced to drink wine when I was working as an engineer in Adelaide in the mid-eighties. The water and the beer were terrible quality so I turned to drinking wine” – Bob McLeish

McLeish Estate continue to produce a range of highly awarded wines. In 2016 McLeish Wines received the trophy to World’s Best Semillon at the London International Wine Challenge and Australia’s White Wine of the Year in 2014.

With the second generation of the McLeish family, daughter Jessica involved in the family winery. The future of the company is to continue producing some of Australia’s finest wines in Australia’s oldest growing wine region. 

We encourage everybody to experience the essence of what the Hunter Valley has to offer by visiting us on the property that sits in the sub region of Pokolbin with a backdrop of the Brokenback Mountains, while enjoying our premium Hunter Valley wines.

Cheers to the Wine

Bob & Maryanne McLeish
