Heathcote wineries & other attractions

Heathcote is significantly warmer than both Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula so the wines produced here are distinctly different and unique to the area. The region is most famous for their rich, velvety and often spicy Shiraz. Located north of the Great Dividing Range, the majority of soil under vine is Cambrian – red and deep and evident as you venture into the area.

One of the biggest draw cards for the region alongside their exceptional wines is the friendly country vibe and warm welcome you get everywhere you visit in the tight knit community.

Below is just a taste of a few of our favourites and check out our Heathcote tours page if you are keen for a visit:

Beautiful wine tour

Adam sorted our family out with a great itinerary with one days notice, we visited some great wineries/ brewery and he had great knowledge of the wines in the area. Overall was a perfect day with some delicious wines and food!

Easy and relaxed

Thank you for organising such a wonderful day. It was super easy dealing with you. The bus ride was fun and the wineries you chose were really good. We had a ball not having to worry about a single thing and being taken from place to place. Very realxing. Would highly reccommend you to anyone.

Kat

Fabulous day

Thanks Adam for organising a great day for us. Most of the group hadn’t been to the Yarra Valley before so weren’t sure what to expect. You were attentive and made our day so easy – we didn’t have to think about a thing! I will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a wine tour!

Wine tour

Had a great time! We let Adam choose the cellar doors and lunch venue, we were offered alternatives but went with his choices with no regrets. Very professional and friendly. Flexibility with pick up points was also very handy. Highly recommended!!! Thank you Adam,
