Uniquely positioned in the main street with a fully functioning winery at the rear, Heathcote Winery Cellar Door and adjacent art gallery are situated in a heritage listed building, a restored miners' produce store built by Thomas Craven in 1854 to cater for the huge influx of gold miners seeking their fortune.
Established in 1981, Heathcote Winery specialises in the production of gold medal winning Shiraz. Wines are stamped with their own unique style but are still reflective of the Heathcote region. Premium Shiraz brands are splashed with Viognier to add another layer of elegance to the wines.
Heathcote Winery's signature brand, Mail Coach shiraz, is a consistent medal winner. The flagship Curagee Shiraz grown on the famous red Cambrian soil has now developed a strong reputation as one of Heathcote's great single vineyard, handcrafted reds.
Heathcote Winery also produces the iconic Slaughter House Paddock shiraz, a genuinely unique full bodied style from some of Heathcote's oldest vines and is a must for those seriously interested in great Heathcote Shiraz.
White wine drinkers are also well catered for, with the Winery producing a straight Viognier and for something different, the increasingly popular Cravens Place MCV White, which is blend of Marsanne, Chardonnay and Viognier. Their cellar door is open seven days a week for visitors to enjoy complimentary wine tastings, a range of gourmet produce and gift ware.
The Galleria Bistro serves seasonal meals, using local produce. Also on offer are tasting plates, indulgent cakes and desserts prepared by the Galleria Chef. Alfresco dining is available in the relaxed courtyard or you may wish to dine in the art gallery for a more intimate experience featuring exhibitions by regional artists. The Bistro is open from Thursday to Sunday from 11am.
