Just 20 minutes from the Calder freeway, featuring boutique, small yield family run wineries, the Southern 1 Itinerary showcases Mia Valley Vineyard and Winery, Barfold Estate, Burke and Wills Winery and Coliban Valley Wines. Enjoy a scenic drive through rolling hills to some of Heathcote's coolest vineyards. The wines here are elegant and lower in alcohol than those further north. The iconic Redesdale Hotel is a great destination for lunch. Tour from each vineyard tasting Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Viognier, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, with the highlight of course, Heathcote Shiraz. Owner-winemakers welcome you at every stop, ready at the cellar door to share their knowledge of the region.
*All cellar doors are owned and operated by the winemaker. At times, these small family run businesses may have other commitments and the cellar door may not be open. Please call ahead to let the vineyards know you are coming to avoid any disappointment.
