Heathcote Estate and Yabby Lake Vineyard are owned by the Kirby family of Village Roadshow Ltd. They purchased a prime piece of Heathcote red Cambrian soil in 1999, planting shiraz (30ha) and grenache (4ha). The wines are matured exclusively in French oak. The arrival of the hugely talented Tom Carson as group winemaker has added lustre to the winery and its wines. Exports to the US, the UK, Canada, Sweden, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.
