Fine Dining at our Restaurant

Welcome to Tyagarah Estate. Tom Smith and family purchased the Wombat Hill Vineyard in 1980 and, in 1990, founded Tyagarah Estate Winery to produce world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reflecting the character and terroir of the Southern Highlands Region.

We produce fine cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that have won many awards throughout Australia. We beleive that wine making begins in the vineyard and we devote many hours to ensure that our grapes are the very best. No irrigation is used on the property and we aim to minimize the use of chemicals.

Our 42-acre Wombat Hill Vineyard estate has long been recognized as a stellar vineyard in the region, and has superb qualities for growing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Once a source for some of the top Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producers in the region, today, the estate is the exclusive source for our Cambawarra Estate wines, as well as the foundation of our unique terroir. Balance, both in the vineyard and winemaking, governs our philosophy.

Led by winemaker Hugh Chappelle, our winemaking team starts in the vineyard; managing vine-by-vine to optimize even fruit ripening, quality and balance. In the winery, Hugh prefers to let Mother Nature do the work. He handles the wine as little as possible and, again, strives to achieve balanced tannins, fruit qualities and natural acidity. The result is our characteristic Cambawarra style; wines with character, full berry flavors and balanced qualities reflecting our Wombat Hill Vineyard.

The Views from our Restaurant - Mountains, Ocean, Green Pastures, Black and White Dairy Cows and the Vineyard are reputed to be the best of any Winery in Australia. We welcome you to visit our winery and restaurant. Free tastings every day from 10am to 4 pm.
