Far Ago Hill

Far Ago Hill Wines was established in 2003 in Canyonleigh, a southern highlands NSW locality that is emerging as a premium cool climate wine-growing region. The vineyard was planted with the intention to produce a wine equal in quality to that of the best Pinot Gris regions in Europe

Ricardo Farago and Katrina Hill toured Europe tasting different styles of Pinot Gris sourced in various regions, from the full and fruity to minerally and “funky”. They decided to search for a piece of land where they could grow their favourite white wine, and relax and enjoy a country lifestyle.

The rocky sandy loam soil on a clay base, situated 750 m above sea level, in a “rain shadow” area, is perfect for grape growing, as vines traditionally like to “struggle”. Soil, climate and the elements combine to form what the French call “terroir”. And the Canyonleigh terroir is becoming recognised as being capable of producing disease free outstanding cold climate boutique wines.

After planting, high calibre viticultural practices were implemented, including use of organic compounds, minimal irrigation and constant hand tending of the vines.

The end wine/result is due to a combination of nature, an experienced consultant, and an outstanding winemaker.

Since 2011 vintage, we have been known as Far Ago Hill Wines.

It is served in high calibre venues such as Aria, Rockpool, The Boathouse at Blackwattle Bay, Seans Panorama, The Four-in-Hand, City Tattersalls, Bentley Bar, Bambini Trust, Cottage Point Inn, Danks Street Depot, Cotton Duck, Neild Avenue, and The Australian Golf Club.
