About Hesket Estate

Located in the village of Hesket, the vineyard at Hesket Estate was first established in the 1980’s. Further expansion and refinement occurred in the 1990’s when the Hudspeth Stevenson family purchased the property. The vineyard is at an elevation of 660 metres above sea level. Today Hesket Estate is a boutique cool climate vineyard specialising in the varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. The 2008 Pinot Noir won gold medal, People’s Choice and Top of Class awards at the 2012 Macedon Ranges Wine Exhibition.

Right on the doorstep of Melbourne lies the tiny cool climate region of the Macedon Ranges. The handful of wineries located there may all be characterised as boutique, creating very limited quantities of exceptional wines.

In addition to these Estate grown wines a Sparkling Blanc de Noir and Gewürztraminer is produced from the Straws Lane Vineyard. An elegant Heathcote Shiraz and Heathcote Sangiovese are also available.

Proprietors, the Hudspeth Stevenson family utilise modern viticulture techniques using the grey and red loam soils of the beautiful Hesket Kerrie Valley. Such techniques yield grapes of exceptional quality and character. Tasting and sales of these fine wines in this peaceful garden setting will allow you to experience the lifestyle of a truly boutique vineyard.
