Hewitson was founded in 1998 by winemaker Dean Hewitson's driving passion to produce uniquely expressive wines from the great vineyards of South Australia's famous wine regions. These regions are the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. They are home to some of Australia's, and indeed the world's, oldest and most treasured vineyards, many of them planted pre-phylloxera and more closely linked to the original vines of Europe than anywhere else in the world.


By finding then contracting these vineyards on long-term arrangements, Hewitson has always worked with the great vineyards, maintaining the traditions and techniques that have stood the test of time over centuries. More recently Hewitson has begun to acquire vineyards in its own right.


From the beginning Hewitson has combined Old-World winemaking techniques with New-World knowledge and understanding. The importance of great wine requiring great oak is significant for Hewitson. All the red wines finish fermentation in French oak barrels especially made and imported. Each vineyard is specifically kept separate throughout fermentation and maturation to preserve its terroir, or unique character.


Hewitson is based on the edge of Adelaide's CBD at the Old Dairy Cold Stores. Built in the late 1800s with thick, cork-lined walls and a naturally cool environment, the Old Dairy is perfect for the cellaring and maturation of fine wine.


Hewitson is considered in the top echelon of Australian wineries. The wines are praised for their flavour, balance and complexity, while the sheer quality and character of the wines demand they are stocked world-wide in personal cellars, the finest hotels and finest restaurants. Hewitson is dedicated to crafting exceptional wines from great vineyards.
