Silver Spoon Estate

Heathcote Wineries

Phone: 0412167927

Silver Spoon Estate is a small family owned boutique winery focusing on the production of premium quality wines. The vineyard is named after the now abandoned Silver Spoon Mine situated on the eastern hillside.

Description

The Property:
There are 56 acres of vines grown on the north, south, east and west facing slopes of the Mount Camel ridge-line, 17 kilometres north of the Heathcote township. Vine plantings date back to the year 2000 and have developed without irrigation. This is possible due to the deep rocky Cambrian soils that preserve moisture and encourage deep root penetration.
Silver Spoon Estate is an off-grid solar powered winery.

The Vines:
We specialise in Rhone and Spanish grape varietals – Shiraz, Viognier, Grenache, Mourvedre and Tempranillo. . We produce our wines using traditional techniques of hand picking, hand pruning and low chemical intervention within the vineyards and winery.
