The Hesketh Wine Company is a small, family owned producer of high quality, yet accessible wines. We work with our own growers and process our own wines like traditional wineries. But rather than attempt to be all things to all people from one region, our approach is to remain focussed on the strengths of each growing region.
Specific vineyards – Each wine is either single vineyard or sourced from a small selection of specific vineyards in each region. Fruit comes from specialised local growers, and the wines are made to retain a sense of place.
Local processing – Each wine is made at local facilities as close as possible to the vineyards for reasons of both quality and practicality.
House style – Wines are made to a ‘Hesketh’ style, which is based on balance and complexity but more importantly, ‘drinkability’. Wines with generous flavours and aromatics, which also retain a sense of place – wines which reflect the vineyards they are grown in.
International approach – fruit sourcing focuses on South Australia’s premium growing regions, but also extends beyond the shores of Australia. This reflects the way our family has always operated. The result is not only a range of wines from familiar varietals and regions, but also some new and exotic wines to help broaden our horizons and keep the knife sharp.
