Summary: The Hunter Valley has been a wine producing region since the earliest years of the settlement. At first the quantities of wine produced and the vine acreages were negligible, and even by 1850, the terminal date for this essay, these had not made the dramatic increases that were to occur in the second half of the nineteenth century. But, during these years the pioneer wine growers, in the main large landholders with a few acres of vines, were laying the foundations for the future.
