Kelman is a well established boutique vineyard nestled in a quiet corner of the Parish of Pokolbin below Mount View. Focusing on classic Hunter varietals, Kelman planted Semillon in 1996 and enjoyed the first harvest in 1999. Chardonnay and Shiraz soon followed, and the first awards came along in the year 2000.
Hundreds of medals and awards later, the vineyard is recognised as a boutique winery that consistently makes classic Hunter varietals with skill and a fine touch. The product range has expanded to include an award winning Blanc de Blanc Sparkling Chardonnay, Tempranillo and Rose plus some interesting blends and Muscat based wines. Kelman Vineyard has been recognised again as a 4 1/2 star winery in the 2021 James Halliday Wine Companion.
