Heathcote Vineyards

Vineyards

The Merindoc range of wines is supported by two very different vineyards, Willoughby Bridge Vineyard, at Colbinabbin, Northern Heathcote has a warm continental climate and the well known Cambrian Red soil, whilst the Merindoc Vineyard, at Tooborac, the southern of the Heathcote region, is on the sweeping slopes of the Macedon Ranges and features granite soils and cool night temperatures.

The variety of climates and soil types between our two Heathcote Vineyards allows us to grow a wide range of varietals well suited to the different aspects of the Heathcote region not only creating a diverse range of wine styles, but also requiring careful and adaptive viticultural expertise, to bring forth the best from each vine. 

Hand pruning, hand picking and training all give the vineyard staff an intimate knowledge of every slope, and every clone, allowing us to express a ‘’sense of place”.

As is often said, the best fertilizer is the vigneron's footstep.
