Established Barossa business; first cellar door


Dean Hewitson's wine business was established in 1998 but he only recently launched its first cellar door.

Situated in the heart of the Barossa on the historic Seppeltsfield Road, the Hewitson vineyard boasts some of the oldest vines in the world, including some that are dry-grown and pre-Phylloxera.

What was formerly a smokehouse has been converted into a bright space offering a blend of historic charm and modern d├ęcor.

There are sweeping vineyard views from various decks and terraces, aimed to encourage visitors to take their time over a glass or two of wine, and there is an open fire during winter months.

There are several wines available at cellar door oor only and local, interstate and international shipping is one offer.

The entire facility is green-tinged with solar energy, water recycling and the encouragement of natural biodiversity – and tastings are complimentary.

Groups over eight guests require a booking and incur a $20 tasting fee, while cheese platters are available and wine can be purchased by the glass or bottle.

Hewitson Wines is open Monday–Saturday 11am-5pm and on Sundays noon-5pm at 66 Seppeltsfield Road, Lot 1, Nuriootpa. 08) 8212 6233.
