Lucy's Run Wines

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

Our little vineyard is in the heart of Lovedale, in famous Hunter Valley wine country, 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 running cattle.

The current vineyard of Shiraz, Merlot and Verdelho (plus olive trees) was planted in 1998 and is sited on the bottom slope of the property, parallel to Black Creek. Our first vintage (made by local master winemaker David Hook) was in 2002, and we’ve been producing quality single vineyard wines since then. With 9 acres (3.6ha) of vineyard we’re only small, but we’re punching well above our weight as we count ourselves very fortunate to have three of Hunter wine country’s best-known winemakers working their magic to take our grapes to 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.

And just who were Lucy and Sophie? Well, both were dogs that lived here before we bought the property 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-style Verdelho.

If you’re up our way, please drop into our cellar shed (yes, shed!) to sample our range*, and we’ll share a few laughs with you over a glass or three! Oh, and bring along your doggos as we’re dog-friendly, too!

We welcome you to join us soon at Lucy’s Run – Brad & Heather Wright

We’re open: 10am-5pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday and (most) public holidays (closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and ANZAC Day).

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.
