Meet the Maker

A proud Hunter Valley boy, Aaron Mercer is crafting award winning wines from sustainable vineyards across NSW.

Our Story

From our family to yours

Mercer Wines has been fermenting for many years. Aaron started over 20 years ago selling wine and scrubbing tanks in the Hunter Valley. Learning from local legends, he soon realised the joy of making wine and has continued his education all over the world.

Mercer is one of NSW’s most awarded and versatile winemakers. With extensive experience working in France, Germany, Canada and California, he is best known for his positive impact on organic and preservative free winemaking in Australia.

Aaron has settled back in the Hunter Valley with his wife, Alison, and children, Will, Audrey and little Charlie. He adores the kids visiting the winery, squashing grapes during vintage or simply being proud to see the new ‘Mercer Wines’.

Aaron is crafting sustainable varietals from NSW with his flair of accuracy and creativity. Visit Mercer Wines new Cellqar Door – April 2024 HERE
