The Hillsview Vineyards can be found in Findon, near Adelaide in South Australia.

Their winemakers selection is specially selected parcels of fruit which they feel are superior in the Hillsview range and classification in the cellar allow them to give these wines special treatment. Specific attention is given to the oak treatment in the red wines with a good balance of fruit and oak being foremost in our winemakers selection. The white wines are specially selected parcels and must represent superior varietal flavour and character.

Winemaker Brett Howard has had the Wine Industry in his blood virtually all his life, having grown up on his parents'vineyard at Blewitt Springs in the sandy hills 8km South East of McLaren Vale. The region is approximately 1100 feet above sea level and the last pocket in the Mclaren Vale district to be harvested.

His 23 years experience have seen him involved in a wide variety of processes, in both large and smaller specialist boutique wineries. He first gained experience at Thomas Hardy and Sons, which he joined in 1982.

His responsibilities mainly centred on table wine production with special emphasis on final stabilisation and clarification of wines ready for bottling.

In 1987 he decided to produce his own unique styles of table wines and commenced production under his Blewitt Springs label. At the same time he gained experience in specialist winemaking technology by working as assistant at the Mount Hurtle Winery. Blewitt Springs is now gaining increasing recognition for wines of richness, intensity and longevity. The Blewitt Springs range continues to expand with quality and value being upmost in the winemakers attitude.
