Heathcote - Victoria
If you are a lover of Red Wines, you will enjoy a trip to Heathcote. Set at the bottom of the McIvor Range, Heathcote is renowed for its quality Shiraz. Heathcote was established in the Gold mining era, and there is plenty of history around this quaint township. The unique soil quality helps produce some of the finest tastes in red wine. Jasper Hill is a local producer of an exclusive variety, that is hard to obtain, so if you ever get the opportunity to try it, buy a bottle or 12...
There are many interesting wineries in this area, all small family run operations. All have a unique taste with grapes grown lovingly in the red, rich cambrian soils.
Also in this area are fun activities, eateries and restaurants to enjoy in Heathcote, and with the Graytown National Park, there is something for everyone.
