The Ellis family have always been into cattle and love their beef. Having grown up around cattle, the family was aware of the commercial realities of beef farming in Australia and its impact on the health of the animal and the flavour of the meat. For this reason the Ellises decided to start farming Speckle Park beef, the natural tenderness of the breed means that the animals can be aged for longer in grass fed conditions and produce an intensely flavourful and tender cut of meat. Having full control of the process means that we strive to produce the tastiest, best beef in town, why? Because we eat it too.

We have picked the first of the 2018 'Athol's Paddock' Heathcote Shiraz from the old vine block. This year has been quite remarkable. As this vineyard is dry grown we are completely at the mercy of the rain gods as to the quality and quantity of grapes we receive each year. 2018 has been close to perfect. We had great summer rain culminating in 50mm late in January and practically nothing since, from a vineyard management perspective you couldn't write the story better.
Please note that our winery cellar door is open every day of the year except Good Friday and Christmas Day. We are open all other days from 10am-5pm.
