Wild Duck Creek Estate is located in Heathcote, in Victoria's Goldfields, in Melbourne Surrounds.

For wine lovers David and Diana Anderson, the dream of growing vines and making wine began in 1972 with the purchase of their first block of land in Heathcote. Then in 1980 came the first plantings, which is now the much-adored Alans Cabernets vineyard. Named after David's father who passed shortly after planting finished.

With dreams of raising a family in the country, Diana and David decided to follow their hearts and move to Heathcote in 1991. That being the first vintage commercially available of Wild Duck Creek Estate's Alans Cabernets and Springflat Shiraz. Once living and settled in Heathcote, David set about laying the foundations of what is now the main hall of the winery, which held all 15 or so barrels, a few small tanks, a basket press and a crusher. The philosophy of minimal intervention winemaking with a focus on absolute fruit quality, and the judicious use of the very best oak, is what David says great wine is all about.

Wild Duck Creek Estate now has access to up to 10 vineyard sites within the Heathcote region, giving their wines depth, complexity and most importantly, consistency.
