The Bimbadgen Estate in the Hunter Valley has just got bigger.

Lee Seng Huang, the executive chairman of the Mulpha Australia Group, has spent $1.9 million on an adjoining 10 hectare holding, Worthington's Vineyard on Palmers Lane.

The sale was through Jurds agent Cain Beckett.

The vineyard was originally planted in 1968 by Allan Martin and his family with the help of his mate, Max Lake. The Worthington family has lived and worked in the Hunter Valley since the 1980s.

The neighbouring Bimbadgen’s Palmers Lane vineyard also dates back to the late 1960s. 

Its name stems from the local indigenous language meaning ‘Place of Good View’.

Bimbadgen was acquired by the Lee family in 1997 for $2.6 million when it was known as Parker's vineyard and winery.
