The Nangarin Vineyard Estate is a combination of prestigious homes and vineyards located approximately 3 minutes from the centre of Picton, 100kms South West of Sydney, NSW.
The estate is the region's first residential vineyard project and one of the most popular rural residential concepts in Australia. Here the rural environment is carefully protected by a community management statement controlling building style, size and materials, and the positioning of the homes on their large rural lots. Relics of the area's history have been retained and sit comfortably among the estate's community facilities. The vineyards also link Nangarin to its past - Picton being the location where wine grapes were first grown in NSW.
This web site is to inform the residents about all aspects of the estate and activities that occur within the estate. It is also meant to make non-residents aware of the unique qualities of the estate.
New & prospective residents: (new) If you are a new resident or considering buying a property in Nangarin, please review the information contained in the new residents section, especially the Community Management Statement (CMS) which are the by-laws that relate to the control and preservation of the essence or theme of the Community Scheme.
2017 Harvest: (new) As agreed to at the 2016 AGM, Southern Highlands Wines are going to undertake a harvest of the Nangarin Vineyard this season. This is at NO ADDITIONAL COST to the residents. The harvest has been sub contracted to SHW who will make all commercial decisions regarding the processing, marketing and distribution of the wine. As many of you would know, the Chardonnay market has been stagnant for many years and this will be the first Nangarin harvest since 2006 when it was last undertaken by Bradcorp and processed by Vicarys winery (now closed due to the Badgers creek airport). Whilst the vineyard has produced up to one hundred ton previously, SHW are only expecting to harvest about twenty five ton from the main vineyard this year. More!
Bushfire awareness: (updated for 2016/17) This summer looks like being hot and dry. Please visit the RFS site at www.MyFirePlan.com.au which contains everything you need. This includes your bush fire survival plan and other applications. Download the most recent version of a survival plan template here!. Also here is a RFS list of current incidents within NSW where you can also enter the 2571 post code for local information. Finally NSW RFS have a series of phone apps which might be very useful for monitoring local fires, or just use the App. store to look for "Fires near us". Remember we lost a house in the estate in October 2006 from a bushfire so preparation is very important.

Nangarin Landcare Group: The Nangarin Estate incorporates a number of significant nature corridors encompassing remnant Cumberland Plain Bushland and the western and northern banks of Stonequarry Creek which boarders the Estate. It was agreed at 2015 Nangarin AGM to form a Landcare Group within the Estate to address weed issues and regeneration of the native bushland. Expressions of interest are sought from residents willing to participate in the Landcare Group. Great progress has been made over the last few months as described in the following report.
