"This is flush with gloriously juicy red, blue, and purple fruits, the components picked with accuracy. While there is prodigious flavor, there is no overripe fruit. It weaves in some of the magic of the Rhone Valley's iconic Chateau Rayas, the ultimate compliment." ~J.H.

Established in 1998 Hewitson winery is situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the historic Seppeltsfield Road and boasts some of the oldest vines in the world. Our fruit is sourced from these historic, dry-grown vineyards in the Barossa Valley and also from single site vineyards in Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.

At Hewitson, we believe great wines are an expression of the soils they are grown in and the season they grow. Through knowledge and experience we strive for balance, structure, concentration, power and breeding. Proudly, through solar energy, water recycling and encouraging natural biodiversity, Hewitson brings these wines to your table environmentally sustainable.

Dean completed his winemaking degree at Australia's world-famous Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1986. He then spent a decade "getting his hands dirty" in one of Australia's leading wineries. It was time to "hit the road". Dean travelled throughout France, working vintages and visiting regions including Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Beaujolais, The Rhone and Provence.

All this "old world" experience gained was not enough to quench Dean's appetite to learn more. Dean then travelled to California to study at the renowned UC Davis, California, completing his Masters in Winemaking and at the same time immersing himself in the wines of Santa Barbara, Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Monterey, Oregon and Washington State. Dean now he spends his days overseeing the winery, production and developing export and domestic markets. He can also often be found "throwing a snag" on the barbeque for the winery team.

Hewitson's vineyards are spread throughout the renowned wine regions of South Australia, including the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. The heart of our winemaking is however always within the Barossa, as we produce all of our wine from our Seppeltsfield Road facilities.
