The production philosophy of the Estate is focused on one objective – Quality.
The Margaret River appellation, and in particular the sub region of Wilyabrup, was first identified as ideal for production of exceptional wines by the seminal study of Dr John Gladstones in the 1960s.
The climate, characterized by high winter rainfall and long dry summers, but with moderated maritime temperatures and particularly, cooling afternoon breezes and cool nights, make the climate similar to the great French region of Bordeaux.
In the 50 short years of it’s being, the Margaret River appellation is now credited as being the finest New World wine region of the world.
At Heydon Estate, we are further blessed by being within the “inner sanctum” – just a few square kilometers comprising the famous sub region of Margaret River known as the Wilyabrup Valley.
