Armstead Estate Vineyard is centrally located within the Heathcote Wine Region on the Northern banks of Lake Eppalock. We are a small boutique winery dedicated to producing moderate quantities of premium quality wines. Our wines include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rosé, Marsanne & Sparkling Shiraz.
Our Cellar Door, open every weekend and public holiday from 11am to 5pm, is situated on the historic 1860s property of Wild Duck Farm and is the old Foreman's cottage, which still retains its rustice charm. An intimate wine tasting can be enjoyed on the Cellar Door verandah, whilst soaking up the amazing views of Lake Eppalock and the beautiful, manicured gardens that surround the old homestead.
Tom and Emily, who took over Armstead Estate in July 2017, invite visitors to bring a picnic lunch, buy a bottle of one of their premium wines (or perhaps a recently released Armstead Golden Ale), and enjoy the splendid views from the lawn.
