Our Family


Our Family

Blackgate Estate is a three generation family owned operation of vineyards, producing wine grapes since 1970’s. It is located in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia, near the township of Yenda. This grape growing region is renowned globally for its family run wineries and award winning wine since the early 1900’s.

Blackgate Estate has supplied fruit to local wineries for more than 40 years. We have over ten varieties of wine grapes that grow our family vineyards. Varieties include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Ruby Cabernet, Semillon and Durif. 

Today we have the same drive and passion to continue what we do best but we have bottled a few special varieties to go under our own label as well. We hope you enjoy our wines as much as we enjoyed producing them for you.

Yesterday, today and tomorrow we continue our family dream of sharing our wine with the world.

George Nehme had farming in his blood and soul when he emigrated from Lebanon. It was by chance that he picked up some grape picking work in Yenda. He instinctively knew he had found the place to put down his roots. Together with his wife Samira they planted the first vines on their Yenda farm in 1975. With 4 children they worked to make it into this beautiful motherland. It was their love, dedication, sacrifice and hard work which built the foundations of Blackgate Estate. Today Sons Zeyad and Danny, and their families, are proud and honoured to continue to grow some of the most amazing vineyards in the Riverina and share their world through wine.
