Wine making is surprisingly new to the Southern Highlands region; surprising because the crisp climate, with its clear, sun-baked summers and cool, frosty winters is ideal for wine growing. Chalkers Crossing produced their first vintage in 1999, to critical acclaim. These are new wines for the new millennium: crisp Sauvignon Blancs, soft peach flavored Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignons, Shiraz, Riesling and Semillon from the Young, NSW vineyard. Chalkers also produce an award-winning range of olive oils, blended from 12 olive varieties from groves planted on the property.

It remains steeped in history and features many folk museums, galleries, vineyards and historic buildings.
