The Heathcote wine region, approximately one and a half hours north of Melbourne, is situated in the heart of Central Victoria and nestled beneath the stunning McHarg and McIvor Ranges,
Home to over 30 cellar doors, the region is renowned for its Shiraz, but also produces a number of other red varietals including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as well as some excellent Riesling and Viogner.
The cellar doors tend to be smaller, family run operations, making for a more intimate experience and the opportunity to learn a great deal about the wines, the family’s histories and the region itself.
There have been quite a few new and improved additions to the cellar doors in the area over the past ten years and there appears to be much more on the cards for a number of the cellar doors.
Definitely one to add to the list and to keep an eye on for future developments.
