Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born. This is an aesthetic range of meticulously crafted, limited vintages, fashioned for the aficianado of bespoke, small batch, little vineyard wines... The lobethal libations of leabrook»
Adam Marks is a chicken enthusiast. In his pursuit of the ultimate eating fowl, Marks traced a route throughout the barnyards, orchards and vineyards of La Belle France. He ultimately settled on the Harcourt Valley of greater Bendigo to establish his own agricultural concern in 2004. Succulent roasting chickens and ripe juicy apples soon gave way to a range of world class wines, which are defined by their regional eloquence, sublime excellence and bucolic grace. The Vineyard Bress is a place of pristine soils, cheerful livestock and breathtaking pastoral charm. The wines speak for themselves, crafted to the most painstaking, small batch vinification techniques.

Heathcote Estate
Heathcote Estate was established exclusively for the production of one wine a single vineyard Shiraz

During the 1850s, Heathcote was the scene of fevered activity as an important gold field town and today Heathcote is best known for producing another rich and prized gem, Heathcote Shiraz. The rich red Cambrian soil and dry mild climate provide the idyllic foundation for producing world class Shiraz and are indeed the reason why Heathcote is considered one of Australia's pre-eminent regions for our most noted variety.

Heathcote Estate

Inspired by the amazing depth and character of Heathcote Shiraz, the Bialkower and Kirby families selected a rare and ideal location to produce an ultra-premium Shiraz to rival Australia's finest. Heathcote Estate was established in 1999 as an ultra premium producer solely focused on the production of one wine, a single vineyard Shiraz.

The Bialkower and Kirby families shared vision of excellence is reflected by their single-minded focus towards quality across all parts of the winemaking process.

Having grown up in the fine wine and food environment that was Melbourne in the 1960s and 70s, Robert Kirby has long been fascinated by fine wine, especially the soft and medium-bodied French varieties Pinot Noir and Shiraz. His childhood was also spent on the Mornington Peninsula , where his family owned cinemas and it was only natural that his first vineyard should have been in that region at Red Hill. By 1992 he planted 6 hectares at Cooralook and since then has planted a much larger vineyard at Tuerong Road Mooruduc.

Heathcote Estate

Louis Bialkower carried on a busy legal practice in Melbourne for many years, coming to wine on a professional basis in 1982 when he founded Yarra Ridge in the Yarra Valley and though that estate was sold to Beringer Blass in the 1990s, he has been continuously involved with wine since that time.
