Heathcote wine region

Nestled in a tranquil bush setting at the foot of the McIvor and McHarg ranges, erstwhile gold-rush town Heathcote is renowned for its world-class shiraz, which can be enjoyed alongside wonderful regional produce.

Local textures
Red soil and warm summers tempered by cool, southerly winds help produce robust wines of power and weight with great texture. Shiraz is Heathcote's flagship varietal, but it also produces superb cabernet sauvignon and is having great success with new red varieties along with viognier and riesling.

Estate living
Taste the wines and meet the winemakers at cellar doors all year round. Visit during the month of October when the local winemakers gather to showcase their iconic wines at the Heathcote Wine and Food Festival. Alternatively, time your trip to coincide with the June Queen's Birthday long weekend for Heathcote on Show.
