Tamburlaine was established in 1966. In 1985 the Hunter winery was purchased by a small group of friends and relatives led by Managing Director and Chief Winemaker, Mark Davidson. Mark has built his long-term winemaking philosophy around Contemporary Organic practices in the vineyard and the winery. After challenging years of research and development, the company has become Australia’s largest producer of organic wines with vineyards in the Hunter Valley and Orange region.
The English playwright Christopher Marlowe wrote the play ‘Tamburlaine the Great’, a play about a 14th-century ruler, Timur, renowned for being one of the most inspirational leaders of his time. As with this warrior prince, we are leading the way with our Contemporary Organics vision, successfully producing award-winning organic, vegan-friendly, low sulphur and no added sulphur wines.
