Howard Vineyard

South Australia | Adelaide Hills

Our Review

Howard Vineyard is a family-owned Adelaide Hills winery set amongst towering gum trees, and terraced lawns. Pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot gris and sauvignon blanc are sourced from the 470m altitude Schoenthal 'Beautiful Valley' Vineyard, near Lobethal; Howard’s Nairne Vineyard in the warmer Mt Barker district is home to shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. All the wines are estate-grown. Winemaker Tom Northcott has a bachelor degree in viticulture and oenology from Adelaide University, and has worked vintages in the South of France, Barossa Valley, Western Australia and Tasmania. -JH


Howard Vineyard wines are Estate grown from our family owned vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The winery takes its name form pioneering horticulturist Amos William Howard. Head Winemaker Tom Northcott’s winemaking approach is to pick at optimal ripeness for lean flavours to showcase the quality and true expression of our vineyards. Howard Vineyard wines are light to medium body with vibrant flavours and great natural acidity.
