A Boutique Winery in Heathcote
Andreas, the winemaker, founded Domaine Asmara with love and passion for great wines. A small family of three is the only staff doing all the work from pruning to the bottling wines. They are proud of not using a heap of fancy equipment or a big staff because they believe that mother nature does its work in producing great wines.
Making wine is a science and it is all about love
The Vines of Domaine Asmara
They produce spectacular Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Durif, Cabernet Franc, Viognier, and other minor species with a special combination of soil, sun, temperature management. Almost all the tasks are done by hand because for them the quality of their wine starts from the very beginning. The winery is located in the proximity of the vineyards, which allows having the hand-picked harvest immediately followed by vinification.
Best Grapes for the Award winning Wines
Only the best goes into the production of their small range of premium red, and white wine. Careful workmanship in the cellar and dedication given in the vineyard turns excellent fruit into spectacular wines. Domaine Asmara’s philosophy is not to chase awards like large corporations, rather believes the best award is if wine lover enjoys their wines and gives it the “seal of approval”. They usually don’t enter wine shows but when they do, they easily secure titles.
