Gabi Lorentz has had a deep love for wine since childhood, when his grandfather used to take him on a horse and cart through his vineyard in Hungary, where they produced some of the most revered wines in the country.
As a result of this lifelong passion, in 2000 Gabi decided to produce his own fine boutique wines on the family estate in the Southern Highlands. His son David manages the vineyard and overseas every aspect of the business from growing and harvesting the grapes to bottling and selling the wine.
Initially, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling grapes were planted in 2000. Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay were then planted in 2001. More recently the vineyard has been restructured with 5.5 hectares of Pinot Noir grafted onto Merlot and Cabernet roots with the intention to make one of the best Pinot Noir and methods traditional sparkling that this country has to offer. Ian Evans, who lives with his family on the property, is revered as the best vigneron in the Southern Highlands.
The team at Cherry Tree Hill is dedicated to producing a range of award winning quality boutique wines at affordable prices. So far, we are well on our way to achieving this goal. Our Riesling is recognized as the rising star of the Cherry Tree Hill label and consistently rates gold from the best critics in the country, however many of our other wines have won medals at several shows including the prestigious Sydney Royal Wine Show and Sydney Boutique Wine Awards and abroad at the London International Wine Show and WSA Singapore Wine Challenge.
