About the winery
Heydon Estate is a boutique, family owned and operated wine producer located in the heart of Wilyabrup in the Margaret River wine region. All wines are from the estate’s single vineyard established in 1988, producing some of the region’s finest Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Sauvignon Blanc, Botrytis Semillon, Shiraz and Petit Verdot. Attention to detail is the Heydon family’s mantra, from the application of rigorous organic and traditional practices in the vineyard, to releasing wines once they’ve achieved ideal bottle age and serving them in fine Riedel glassware. The family’s other passion, cricket, takes pride of place on the wine labels with names such as “The Willow” and “W.G. Grace” featuring on the flagship wines.

History & Geography
Heydon Estate is a boutique, family owned and operated wine producer. Owners George and Mary Heydon have been actively involved since 1995, when they became part owners of the current vineyard. In 2002 George completed viticulture and winemaking studies at the University of Western Australia, leading to his current role as vigneron. In 2004, following the outright purchase of the vineyard, George and Mary moved to the property, together with sons Michael and Conor, and have lived and worked there to the present day. George, also a practicing dentist in the Margaret River township, continues to oversee all vineyard and wine production. Nowadays he also relies on the expertise of viticulturalist Tim Quinlan and winemaker Mark Messenger, both extremely well regarded in their respective fields. Mary is hands-on when it comes to the sales and administration of Heydon Estate and she personally hosts guests at the Cellar Door – it must be said, with the enthusiasm of an Irish-born owner!
