Armstead Estate

Victoria | Heathcote

Our Review

Armstead Estate vineyard is centrally located within the Heathcote region on the banks of Lake Eppalock. Founder Peter Armstead planted the first shiraz vines in 2003 on an east-facing slope just metres from the lake. Tom and Emily Kinsman purchased the estate in July ’17, and intend to continue the business, growing and sourcing fruit from a number of well-known vineyards across the Heathcote region, making quality wines with the assistance of Rob Ellis.


Armstead is a boutique winery centrally located within the Heathcote Wine Region, on the northern banks of Lake Eppalock. Armstead’s unique, 16-year-old vineyard is on an easterly facing slope, over a shallow strip of Cambrian soil, just metres from the lake.


Shiraz, Sparkling Shiraz, Marsanne, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve Shiraz

Cellar Door


Our Cellar Door is the Old Foreman's Cottage, built in 1860 and located only 150m from the northern shores of Lake Eppalock. The Cellar Door is situated on 5 acres of manicured garden, so enjoy a picnic on the lawn after a tasting.
