Our Story




Midnight’s Promise Estate was purchased in early 1998 by  Sydney-based lawyer Geoff Petty, who had a vision for the undeveloped 25 acre lot that was then known as Parrot Stump Farm.

Having been in the wine industry for the previous 15 years (as an owner of Molly Morgan Vineyard – one of the founding participants in the Lovedale Long Lunch) he had clear goals – to establish a vineyard producing traditional Hunter Valley wines and a haven for guests  who, (like himself), enjoy the combination of food, wine and good company all in the historical heart of the Australian wine industry.

Now operated by the owner and his family, the Estate caters for people who want to “get away from it all” and relax in comfortable, private surroundings whether in groups in one of the cottages or in the Balinese themed couples-only Villa.
