During a fleeting half century in the global wine community, the Hesketh family has always followed the path less travelled by. It is appropriate therefore, that their winemaking combines the traditional elements of vineyard selection & hands on winemaking, with a contemporary approach to the wines they make – which range from classic Australian regional varieties, through to eclectic old world wines to surprise and delight. All of which are made in a house style which reflects the family’s passion for wine, understanding of wine quality, and over ninety years combined experience both working with wine and imbibing it.
The Hesketh range of white label wines represent the best of our home state, South Australia - one of the most celebrated and diverse growing regions in the world. Grapes for these wines are grown only in premium sub regions of South Australia which are best suited to each wine style. The wines are then blended before bottling to a fresh, fruit driven style which is perfect for everyday drinking - or more salubrious occasions.
