From little things…
Ballinaclash is a small pick-your-own orchard, vineyard and cellar door, owned and run by Peter & Cath Mullany and their six children. It is situated near Young, in the Hilltops cool-climate region of New South Wales.
Established in 1965 by Peter’s parents, Michael and Bernie Mullany, Ballinaclash was originally a cherry and stone fruit orchard.
Ballinaclash prides itself in growing the best possible fruit for its customers, and producing boutique style products and single vineyard wines made exclusively from their fruit.
When Peter & Cath took over, they decided to diversify, and in 1997, aware of the ideal conditions they had for growing cool-climate grapes, they planted their first vines.
They continued to grow their cherries & stone fruit wholesaling mainly to the Sydney and Brisbane markets. By 2000, Peter & Cath decided to change the direction of their business, and opened up a part of their cherry orchard to the public for pick-your-own. Over the following years, the pick-your-own cherries market quickly grew, and each year, Peter & Cath opened up more & more of Ballinaclash cherry orchard to pick-your-own. Today, Ballinaclash cherries are carefully grown exclusively for their pick-your-own customers.
First established in 1965
