Heathcote shiraz makes wine lovers go weak at the knees. Its depth is the result of the dark red Cambrian soil and the continental climate. Jasper Hill (Drummonds La, Heathcote, (03) 5433 2528) is the biggest name in the area, but others include Munari (1129 Northern Hwy, Ladys Pass, (03) 5433 3366), Redesdale Estate (North Redesdale Rd, Redesdale, (03) 5425 3236), Wild Duck Creek Estate (762 Spring Flat Rd, Heathcote, (03) 5433 3133) and Red Edge (Golden Gully Rd, Heathcote, (03) 9337 5695). To find most of it under one roof, head to Cellar and Store (105 High St, Heathcote, (03) 5433 2204), which also has a full range of local gourmet produce.
