The Founder's Club

The Tyrrell’s story began in the Hunter Valley with Edward Tyrrell, who in 1858, purchased a 320-acre parcel of limestone country nestled in the foothills of the Brokenback Range. On arrival, Edward constructed a slab hut from ironbark, hand cut with an axe. This small hut still stands today, adjacent to the winery.

Edward proceeded to plant 70 acres of grapevines on the original holding, naming it Ashmans. This land contains many of the best vineyard sites in the Hunter Valley and the first vintage was in 1864.

In 1869, Edward married Susan Hungerford and they went on to raise a family of 10 children. The vineyard was eventually passed onto the second generation, Dan and Avery. A block of Edward’s vines planted in 1879 is consistently bearing fruit today and is one of the oldest vineyards still in production in the world.

From its founder’s early vision to today, the long tradition of quality winemaking continues at Tyrrell’s.
