Greg and Natala searched for 18 months looking at 45 properties before deciding on the current Flynns Wines vineyard site which is located 13kms north of the Heathcote township on a strip of the red cambrian period soil that is sort after for vineyard establishment. We started establishing the vineyard from scratch in 1998. Undertaking all the work ourselves we put in 2000 trellising posts, strained 50kms of trellis wire and built a barn that would eventually be the winery. We have now been here 11 years! We have now gained a grass roots following for our wines particularly from the many visitors we have welcomed through cellar door and by consistently providing our customers with quality wines that reflect individuality and Heathcote regional characteristics. Its also very encouraging to receive some recognition by industry leaders like James Halliday in his 2008 Wine Companion (5 out of 5 stars for the winery and one of the ten best new wineries). We are a little unusual in the current wine industry because we grow grapes, make the wine and sell the wine ourselves through Cellar Door and good independent restaurants retailers across Australia. The majority of vineyards will only undertake one or two of these areas. But we think this gives us better control of the process from start to finish. Three years ago we built the Heathcotean Bistro which is attached to the winery, so that we could offer visitors to the Cellar Door a great wine, food, and Heathcote experience. Have a tasting at cellar door with the winemaker before enjoying the gourmet menu using quality fresh ingredients sourced from our own kitchen garden, orchard and local producers which is matched to wines that compliment the food. The wine list also includes our own wines, both current and back vintages and other domestic and international wines. Read less
