Heathcote Estate was established in 1999 as an ultra premium producer solely focused on the production of one wine - a single vineyard Heathcote Shiraz. The Bialkower and Kirby families shared vision of excellence is reflected in their single-minded focus on quality across the entire winemaking process.

Heathcote Estate's rich red Cambrian soil and dry mild climate provide the idyllic foundation for producing world class Shiraz. It is for these two reasons that the Heathcote wine district is considered one of Australia's pre-eminent regions for Shiraz.
