Hesket Estate: A Short History
First established in the 1980s, Hesket Estate is located in the charming village of Hesket, a small area in the Macedon Ranges situated 660 metres above sea level. The Hudspeth Stevenson family purchased the property in the 1990s. Since then further expansion and refinement has occurred. The old shearing shed has transformed into our cellar door and winery space renovated to produce estate made and grown wines. The cool climate conditions have proven to be an outstanding environment for the ongoing cultivation of our vines and ultimately wine.
Today, our range has grown to include distinctive small batch wines of Sparkling, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Heathcote Shiraz. Our commitment to a variety of wines aims to accommodate each individual’s palette. All our wines are available for purchase through our online store or if you prefer the up close and personal touch (or sip), visit us.

Hesket Estate is the ideal location for visitors from overseas, interstate, Melbourne, Bendigo or locals of the Macedon Ranges.
