Heathcote Wine Hub
With at least 24 wines on taste every day, the Heathcote Wine Hub is the ideal place to enjoy, compare, understand and purchase mixed wines from the many great wineries of the Heathcote region.
The Heathcote Wine Hub is Heathcote’s regional Tasting Centre, offering tasting and sales of wine from most of the producers in the region.
If you’re seeking a deeper knowledge, the staff and owners of the Heathcote Wine Hub are only too pleased to take you on a guided tasting tour of the region where you can experience, at the one location, the diversity of wines produced in the region. In particular, Heathcote is renowned for producing outstanding shiraz, ranging from lighter easy-drinking, savoury and elegant styles, through to rich and complex tastings. It also is fast gaining a reputation for other varieties, which can be explored in store such as sangiovese, nebbiolo, tempranillo, Rhône and Spanish-style blends, fiano, vermentino, viognier and marsanne.
Armadale Cellars only stocks the best – and they’ve taken the guess work out of the equation for you. They stock wines that they have personally tasted, and that have passed their test for quality, complexity and value.
Red, white; young, old; New World or Old World; sweet or dry – whatever style you’re looking for – and at whatever budget, Armadale Cellars has the perfect drop.
Life is too short to drink anything but good wine. Enjoy!
