Red Edge winery: following a minimal intervention principle

Red Edge winery is situated on a slope overlooking the town of Heathcote, about 100 kilometers north of Melbourne in the heart of Victoria, the southernmost state in Australia. The winemaker, Peter Dregde, is committed to a minimal intervention approach. The vines are all hand pruned and grapes are hand-picked. Wines are also handmade at the on-site winery using simple methods such as whole bunch maceration, wild yeast fermentation, hand plunging, racking by gravity and no fining or filtration.

This dedicated approach assures that each bottle of wine produced from Red Edge expresses the true characteristics of the terroir and is of the best possible quality

Vines grow on 500-million-year-old Cambrian soil

The vineyard is rooted in 500-million-year-old Cambrian soil, some of the oldest surface soil on the planet, and was first planted in 1971. The climate is continental, with hot, dry summers and cool winters. Cool nights in the autumn are key to the ability of the grapes to retain natural acidity, an important characteristic for traditional winemaking.

Experience wines, sparkling’s or fortified wines

The original 2 hectares of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines has now expanded on adjacent blocks to 14 hectares of various varieties including Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Mouvedre, Graciano, Touriga Nacional, Mencia, and Reisling. Red Edge’s individual winery wines are all produced from estate grown fruit only and include red wines, sparkling wines and fortified wines. These handcrafted wines from a single vineyard in a premium growing area truly have unique qualities and are of international standard.
