About Us

Our History

1930 The Beelgara winery was originally built by Italian immigrants, in the heartland of the Riverina wine district of New South Wales.
2001 The winery was purchased by the Toohey Family who have a proud history as liquor merchants since 1900.
2007 Beelgara was extensively modernised and now rated 4.5 stars by James Halliday
2012 As partnerships were forged with other wineries and new wine companies were acquired, Wine Insights was born to reflect our diverse range of wine brands and services.
2015 The Cumulus winery in the premium NSW region of Orange was acquired, adding an outstanding range of cool climate wines to the portfolio and another world class winery facility to our group.

Vineyard
Established in 1995, the 508 hectare Cumulus vineyard is one of the largest single vineyard’s in New South Wales, which gently rises and falls across a range of elevations and slopes above and below 600m – traversing both the Orange and Central Ranges wine regions.

In such unique surroundings the Cumulus vineyard provides a range of elevations, terrains, volcanic soils and aspects which combined with the area’s high altitude, intense sunlight and cool climate delivers wines with bright fruit flavours and subtle elegance.


Winemaking

Our wines are crafted by our own winemaking team led by the highly respected Group Chief Winemaker Rod Hooper in the Riverina and Debbie Lauritz in Orange. We source premium cool climate grapes from Orange, Central Ranges, the Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Yarra Valley and Margaret River to present a comprehensive Australian offering from  the most recognised and distinguished wine regions. Long term relationships with premium grape growers ensure access to the first class fruit. Click here to our team page to read about our winemakers.
