Welcome to Lucy’s Run Wines – an award-winning boutique vineyard in the Hunter Valley

Our picturesque vineyard is in Lovedale, in the beautiful and rightly famous Hunter Valley, New South Wales. Lucy’s Run has a total of 68 acres and was, originally, part of a 2,000 acre cattle farm in the mid/late 1900s. That property (Belbourie) was owned by the local Roberts family who planted a vineyard in the ’60s, but it was pulled out in the mid-80s in favour of breeding cattle. The current vineyard (and olive trees) was planted in 1998 and is sited on the bottom slope of the property, adjacent to Black Creek, and our first vintage (produced by David Hook) was in 2002. And just who were Lucy and Sophie? Well both were dogs that lived here before we arrived in 2015 – Lucy had the run of the place (see how that works?!), and Sophie … well, she’s the name behind our much-loved Sweet Sophie dessert Verdelho.

With 9 acres (3.6ha) of vineyards we’re only small, but we’re punching way above our weight. We also count ourselves very fortunate to have three of Hunter wine country’s best-known winemakers working their magic to take our grapes to the bottle: David Hook, Mike De Iuliis and Nick Paterson.

We take great pride in our award-winning Shiraz (two trophies, count ’em!), Merlot and Verdelho (including our luscious Sweet Sophie). We’re also home to Woof Woof wines, created to support PetRescue.

Drop into our cellar shed (yes, shed!) to sample our range, and we’ll share a few laughs with you.

5 stars from this TripAdvisor reviewerCame to Lucy’s Run for a tasting while touring through the Hunter Valley and it already started great when we were welcomed by a bunch of kangaroos jumping around on their lawn. It was busy with a group when we entered the cellar door, but owner Brad immediately greeted us and asked us to wait a bit. Later he told us all about the small winery and let us taste some of their great wines. The friendly and personal approach of Brad and Heather, together with their excellent wines, makes a visit to Lucy’s Run a must-do while touring through the Hunter Valley.
