Chalkers Crossing Winery, established in 2000, is a hallmark of premium quality cool climate single vineyard wines located in the Hilltops region and Tumbarumba wine regions of New South Wales. Its dedication to capturing the essence of the terroir is evident in every bottle, a vision passionately pursued by winemaker Celine Rousseau. The winery’s journey began with the transformation of a neglected plum orchard into the modern Rockleigh Vineyard, featuring varietals like Riesling, Semillon, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Kylmorn Vineyard, a more recent addition, further exemplifies their commitment to sustainable viticulture and quality wine production.
Chalkers Crossing’s wines reflect the unique heritage of the Hilltops region, known for its fertile red sandy loam soils, ideal for premium grape cultivation. The region’s history of grape growing dates back to the late 1800s, witnessing a revival in the 1980s. The winery complements its Hilltops range by sourcing grapes from the cool climate Tumbarumba region, crafting distinctive Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc. The winery's state-of-the-art facility, equipped with modern winemaking equipment, ensures the highest quality of wine production, a testament to Celine Rousseau’s expertise and international experience.
