Molly’s Cradle Wines is a 100% Australian, family-owned boutique wine company.

Proudly owned and operated by the Skidmore family, the brand was built on a simple philosophy – from the best grapes, comes the best wines. As generational wine growers, we have been producing some of the finest wines in the Hunter Valley, with a vision and commitment to provide our customers with handcrafted, yet affordable premium wines. Our grape growing philosophy is important; it all starts in the vineyard with a combination of traditional and modern technologies.


Our Name

We are often asked about the origin of our name, “Molly’s Cradle”. Our first vineyard was located in Tuckers Lane North Rothbury, Hunter Valley, we started with virgin land on a one hundred acre site. Once our Verdelho, Chardonnay and Merlot block had been cleared, a distinctly “cradled” area geographically could be seen, add to this that the property was at the base of Mount Molly Morgan, we decided to call our new range of wines Molly’s Cradle.


We strive to ensure that the finest quality fruit is passed on to the wine maker.

Our vines are hand-tended, hand-harvested and hand-sorted, to ensure that the grapes (and therefore the wines we produce) are of the highest quality, in turn; arming our winemaker with the necessary tools to deliver the premium consistency that Molly’s Cradle products enjoy.
