The Australian winery was founded in 1843 in the Hunter Valley (New South Wales) by Dr Henry John Lindeman (1811-1881), an English naval surgeon who immigrated in 1840. He had five sons and five daughters. Lindemans had acquired knowledge of viticulture through visits to German and French vineyards. He planted 40 hectares of Sémillon near the Paterson River, which was then called Hunter River Riesling. He named the place Cawarra, which means "beside running water" in the indigenous language. Lindeman had the idealistic attitude of curbing the then rampant drunkenness among the immigrants by drinking wine instead of brandy and also propagated the great health value of wine. A few years later, the first winery was built.
