Capercaillie Wines

Capercaillie Wines was established in the Hunter Valley by Alasdair Sutherland in late 1995 when he built a small modern winery on an excellent 20 year old vineyard.

Alasdair was a Scot, his heritage is reflected in the very name 'Capercaillie'. It is the Gaelic name given to the black wood-lands grouse, native to the pine forests of Scotland.

In the 20 plus years since the winery was established, Capercaillie has built a firm customer base in domestic and export markets and has gained a reputation as a quality producer with many award winning wines.
