Dickinson Estate produces exceptional, cool-climate wines, produced from selected fruit grown on the Dickinson Estate Vineyard in the beautiful Blackwood Valley Wine Region.
Established in 1994, this property had unique beginnings’ as a sheep and cattle farm, providing rich soils and a natural fertiliser base for the vines to thrive in it’s winemaking future. During the non-fruit bearing period, the farm sheep still graze amongst the vines, reducing the weed burden while at the same time, re-fertilizing the soils.
More than 450 hectares of premium varieties are under vine, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. Dickinson Estate was recognised in 2018 by James Haliday as a 50-star winery with several wines scoring over 95 points, and won gold and silver medals in the 2017 London International Wine Competition and various awards in Hong Kong and China.
