The pioneering winemaking family Kim and Frances Moginie are retiring some three decades after establishing Joadja Winery in the NSW Southern Highlands.

They will shortly be handing over the reigns of the vineyard and boutique winery to young wine enthusiasts Matt Toomey and Siobhan Maloy and the extended Maloy family. 

Joadja Winery, which was the first grape grower and wine producer in the cool climate wine region of the Southern Highlands, sold last week

On offer was the 8.5 hectares property which has produced wines awarded 4.5 stars by wine expert James Halliday. 

It has 50 tonne crush capacity winery and modern laboratory and barrel storage equipment along with a lovely stone, timber and glass cellar door with wood fire.

With regional characteristics of cool climate, 900 mm rainfall and high altitude, both white and red wines have been produced. Some 15 acres of the 21 acres are under vine.

The white varieties; Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris (Pinot Grigio) and Chardonnay, and the red varieties grown included Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. 

Marketed by Colliers International with potential for further development (STCA) through tourism and agriculture, it is located on the door step to the village of Berrima.
