The Cherry Tree Hill wine label, the culmination of twelve years of hard work, is now at the stage where we are producing enough top quality wine to offer to the public.
Gabi Lorentz has had a deep love for wine since childhood, when his grandfather used to take him on a horse and cart through his vineyard in Hungary, where they produced some of the most revered wines in the country.
As a result of this lifelong passion, in 2000 Gabi decided to produce his own fine boutique wines on the family estate in the Southern Highlands. His son David manages the vineyard and overseas every aspect of the business from growing and harvesting the grapes to bottling and selling the wine.
Initially Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling grapes were planted in 2000. Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay were then planted in 2001. Ian Evans, who lives with his family on the property, is revered as the best vigneron in the Southern Highlands.
The team at Cherry Tree Hill is dedicated to producing a range of award winning quality boutique wines at affordable prices. So far, we are well on our way to achieving this goal. Our Riesling is recognized as the rising star of the Cherry Tree Hill label however many of our other wines have also already won medals at several shows including the prestigious Sydney Royal Wine Show and Sydney Boutique Wine Awards.
