Since 1996 owner & vigneron Peter Dredge has been making powerful yet elegant wines from one of the oldest vineyards in arguably the most famed Shiraz area in Australia - Heathcote.
Planted in 1971, the original 2 hectares of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines grow on a strip of 500 million year old Cambrian soil- some of the oldest earth on the face of the planet. It’s glorious, vibrantly red, deep, free-draining, mineral rich, eminently favourable to the vine, particularly Shiraz. Further plantings on adjacent blocks have expanded to 14 hectares with some other classic European varieties. The vines are all dry grown with yields of less than 2.5 tonnes per hectare. Individual vineyard wines are made from estate grown fruit only. The vineyards are hand pruned, hand picked, and the wines hand made on site in our dedicated winery. Our Cellar Door is open by appointment only.
