Cockfighter's Ghost Winery
Cockfighter's Ghost takes its intriguing name from the legend of the spirit of a horse, owned by one of Australia's pioneer vignerons, that some say can still be seen galloping through the vines of our vineyard on the banks of the Wollombi Brook in the Hunter Valley.
In addition to the Cockfighter's Ghost ranges, the multi-award winning Poole's Rock series of wines showcases the classic Hunter Valley varietals of Semillon, Chardonny and Shiraz.
Founded in 1988 by the late David Clark AO, former Chairman of the Royal Sydney Wine Show and co-founder and Chairman of Maquarie Bank, the Cockfighter's Ghost label has become synonymous with passionate winemaking which exemplifies the best regions and varieties.
Today Cockfighter's Ghost Wines continue to be made from the best grapes, specifically selected from vineyards and regions throughout Australia, acknowledged as amongst the best for each variety. At the same time, they have introduced a renewed vigour in pursuing single vineyard perfection with the Poole's Rock range of wine.
