In 1994 Judy and Peter Dredge purchased the five acre Red Edge estate. Currently planted to Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, on a ridge of Cambrian red volcanic soil, which runs parallel to the Northern Highway through Heathcote, and towards Mount Carmel. All the premium Heathcote vineyards whose wines are gaining international acclaim are planted on the same geological feature.
"Red Edge is a new name on the scene, but the vineyard dates back to 1971, at the renaissance of the Victorian wine industry. In the early 1980s it produced the wonderful wines of Flynn & Williams and has now been rehabilitated by Peter and Judy Dredge, producing two quite lovely wines in their inaugural 1997 vintage. For the time being, at least, Peter Dredge continues to keep body and soul together by making the wines at Wildwood and at Witchmount Estate, Rockbank. Trying to eke a living out of 500 cases of what in these days are moderately priced wines is simply not possible!" -Winepros.com.au
