The Estate

Stretching over 217 hectares near the Murray River at Red Cliffs, the Deakin Estate vineyard is a model of successful contemporary viticultural management.

The Vineyard


Our major varieties are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Colombard, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Tempranillo, Malbec, Moscato and Viognier. We are leaders in innovative vineyard techniques such as partial root zone drying, canopy management and yield monitoring.

Agricultural research bodies and others in the industry access our vineyard for study purposes and in 2002 we received a Save Water Award for our water conservation practices aimed at protecting the environment and future productivity of the region.
