Cockfighters Ghost | Australian wine exemplifying the best of regions and varieties

The Legend

The Legend states that in 1835, Governor Macquarie directed explorers to find routes to open up the Hunter Valley. One wild and windy night, as the explorers attempted to cross a flooded creek, their strongest horse – Cockfighter – drowned bravely trying to get his rider across the raging waters.

When convict gangs were later sent to construct a bridge over what was now known as Cockfighter’s Creek, they swore that on stormy nights you would see Cockfighter’s Ghost galloping free across the countryside.

The Legend was born.

To this day it is still reported that Cockfighter’s Ghost still haunts the vineyards planted on the bank of the creek.
