Tulloch Wines is on the hunt for rare and old vintage stock as the Hunter Valley winery celebrates its 120th anniversary this year.

Tulloch plans to host a flagship event to mark its 120th in May of this year and has revived a promotion last held in 1982, asking the trade and consumers for help in tracking down some of its earliest vintages.

Tulloch chief executive officer and fourth-generation family member, Christina Tulloch, said that depending on the nature and condition of the wine, the family would offer payment for the bottles or a swap for current vintage wines.

“Of course donations of old – both full or empty – bottles are also welcome, but bottles that have not been opened are what we are really looking for and the oldest unopened bottle that we find, will also win two tickets to one of the events we will be holding to celebrate our 120th anniversary,” explains Tulloch. 

“At Tulloch we often have people contacting us to see if we can put a value on old bottles of our wine they have found in cellars of deceased estates or when cleaning out their parents wine collections. To help us fill in some of the gaps we have in our retrospective tasting, it would be great to see what people can unearth for us.” 

Anyone who has a bottle of interest is asked to contact Tulloch via email and, if possible, include a picture of the bottle, clearly showing the label, the vintage and the contents.
