The Pinnaroo Story

The original landowner of Pinnaroo was John Grant, a convicted Irishman who was transported to NSW in 1811 but was subsequently pardoned in 1821 as the result of good work ethics and behaviour. John Grant subsequently became a well known and respected farmer in the area. At his death he had 12 children and owned 30 000 acres on the Belubula and Lachlan rivers. The land was separated in 1909 and 4 000 acres became Pinnaroo.

Pinnaroo is now farmed by a group of families who came together out of a love for the area, a love of good wine and a shared ambition to produce wines of excellence.

Today, Pinnaroo has 300 acres under vines and prides itself on its biodiverse approach to farming which encourages both productivity and environmentally sustainable agriculture. Rotation crops are grown as well as Lucerne to feed small stocks of cattle and sheep.

The position of the farm, on the beautiful slopes of land along the Belubula river just outside Canowindra, makes it ideal for growing grapes and is a wonderful meeting place for friends and family at picking time.

We hope you enjoy our select limited edition of wines and look forward to welcoming you to Club Pinnaroo.
