Margaret Wallington

Wallington Wines Canowindra, Organic Producer & Founding President of Canowindra@home

Laying the foundations for sustainable local food production, and sharing her enthusiasm for the region is high on the agenda for Margaret Wallington. Margaret moved to Canowindra in January 1990 with her husband Dr Anthony Wallington. In a lifelong dream of Anthony’s, they purchased a farm and establish a vineyard. When she wasn’t raising her children and farming, Margaret became the founding President of Canowindra@home (1999) and helped establish the famous Canowindra@home 100 Mile Dinners. Margaret’s love of the region and enthusiasm for the continued growth and development of Canowindra have been embraced by the community. She sees the future for the region as becoming a well-known area for organic produce. In the meantime, she will continue producing her own organic wines, olives for oil, cattle and sheep, and tinkering with pistachios.
