Jasper Hill
Established by Ron and Elva Laughton in Heathcote, Victoria, Jasper Hill is one of Australia's most respected and sought-after producers of cool climate Shiraz. A family owned and operated business, the winery has been producing vintages for the past 34 years. With Ron's name being synonymous with great Shiraz, so too is his daughter Emily's who has been involved in the viticulture and winemaking since 2001. Emily's husband Nick also works in the cellar, while her sister, Georgia works in the cellar door.



Grown in the area's rare Cambrian soil, Jasper Hill's wines are all made from estate-grown grapes, cultivated using organic and biodynamic principles from vineyards planted in 1975. The portfolio of Shiraz and aromatic whites is derived mostly from their two famous vineyards: Emily's Paddock and Georgia's Paddock. The dry-grown, hand pruned vines result in low-yielding fruit with a depth of color and flavor. A similar mantra continues in the winery as the winemakers attempt to 'interfere' as little as possible.
Heathcote
Located to the north of the Great Dividing Range in Central Victoria, approximately an hour and a half’s drive from Melbourne, Heathcote is well known for their award winning Shiraz wines, which is characterized in this region by a deep dark ruby colour with a rich silky tannins. The wine region is situated between Bendigo and Goulburn Valley and borders New South Wales to the north. The grapevines of Heathcote are planted along the sides of the hills of Mount Camel. Due to the elevation of the terrain, the cool winds keep the grapes cool and the temperature regulated which aids in a slow and steady process of producing only the finest wines. Another important factor that aids in growing the grapes is the calcium rich Cambrian soil that has good water retention capabilities. Because of this, the wineries of Heathcote rarely need to irrigate their vineyards. Due to these favourable conditions, the wines from Heathcote tend to be extremely rich and flavourful.
