One of the country's oldest wineries, Dalwood Estate, relaunches at Branxton

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The “grandfather” of Hunter Valley vineyards roared back into life on Sunday, with the launch of the revamped Dalwood Estate at Branxton. 
After laying dormant since 2014, the site was snapped up by Iris Capital 13 months ago, with the hospitality industry player undertaking an extensive overhaul of the historic winery. 
Property owner, Iris Capital CEO Sam Arnaout, was full of praise for the rebirthed site. 
“It’s the grandfather of all the vineyards in the Hunter,” he said of the 190-year-old winery.  
“The entire property is steeped in history. For us, it was about bringing it back to life.”
