Rogues Lane Vineyard

Victoria | Heathcote

James' Review

Pauline and Eric Dowker have planted shiraz (and a smattering of malbec), the first vintage coming in 1998. ‘Dowker' is an ancient word meaning ‘herder of ducks and geese', making the location of the vineyard on Wild Duck Creek doubly appropriate.


Rogues Lane is a small family owned vineyard in the Southern Heathcote region. The vineyard comprises of 7 acres made up of 95% Shiraz and 5% Malbec. The vines were planted in 1995 and are pruned to limit yields to under 2 tons per acre. The vines are grown without irrigation.
