The Mcwilliams family have operated in the Hunter Valley for 141 years making them one of the oldest wine growing families in the Hunter Valley.

The Mcwilliams wine group has fallen on hard times recently and has been placed in administration in a final bid to save the struggling brand.

Administrators from KPMG to seek new capital or a buyout of the brand, if they fail to attract new capital or a buyer for the brand, we could see the once-mighty brand disappear from the Hunter Valley.

The Vineyard will continue to operate as normal for now and will work closely with the administrators to get the best outcome for the brand.
