The Heartland story began in the late 1990’s when winemaker Ben Glaetzer became excited about the outstanding quality of fruit being grown in some of South Australia’s lesser-known regions, in particular, Langhorne Creek. Together with industry veterans, Scott Collett, Grant Tilbrook and Nick Keukenmeester, they grew Heartland into an award-winning winery, producing the first vintage in 2001.
“At Heartland we talk lovingly of our vines and soil, of our hard work and attention to detail and of the time taken in barrel and bottle to make the wines we offer. But what does it all mean? What is it all for? The end result is all that matters. It is that moment when you open a bottle of Heartland and discover all those sensations we have strived to include. It is the moment when the aromas, the texture and the flavours combine to fill your senses so you can taste it from where you are. Savouring the IT that we are all so passionate about.”
