Our Chief Winemaker John Hordern is the third generation of his family to make wine, who along with Rex D’Aquino, have over 70 years combined experience in cool climate winemaking in Australia.

When you match this with high quality fruit from the Highland Heritage Vineyard, it is a winning combination.

The Orange Region is at the forefront of cool climate viticulture in Australia, where cool temperatures during most of the growing season, coupled with dry Autumn conditions, are ideal for growing high quality grapes.

The Fruit ripens slowly, intensifying colour and flavour, ideal for premium wine making.

Highland Heritage focuses on the key cool climate grape varieties of the region and are our flagship wines.
