Whyworry Wines have had a knack for garnering awards since their Verdelho picked up a bronze medal at the New England Wine Show in 2007. Owners Darryl and Robyn Carter planted their first vines in 2000 and now produce a commendable array of varietals, including a terrific sparkling Cuvée Brut and their award-winning Gewürztraminer. They have also had tremendous success with a white port and hope to revive the popular run in the near future.
The perfect place to enjoy some of New England's superb high country views, the cellar door is just four kilometres off the New England Highway at Uralla, about twenty minutes’ drive from Armidale.
At around eleven hundred metres above sea level, the cool climate means picking well into autumn, unlike the warmer regions south of the Northern Tablelands plateau. The name ‘Whyworry’ was probably inspired by the property’s consistent rainfall during some of the state’s hard droughts.
