Hemera Estate formally known as Ross Estate is a 20 year old southern Barossa winery with 110 acres of vines which was originally developed by Darius and Pauline Ross. This rich land is home to an abundance of quality vines with many different grape varieties including the defining 101 year old Grenache.
“Hemera” is of Greek origin and means “goddess of morning light”. This name was chosen to reflect the fact that our property is one of the first vineyards in the Southern Barossa to receive the morning light.
The reason behind the transition from Ross Estate to Hemera Estate is that our founder Darius Ross finally wished to retire. The business was sold in early 2012, and has since been easing into its transition as Hemera Estate.
The new beginning as Hemera Estate will bring a stronger focus to our viticulture, winemaking and overall style. Together these components will reflect the super premium image to which we strive to deliver.
Alex Peel, Hemera Estates Winemaker is excited about the future of the company. Our Moto of “a perfect balance between intensity, structure and elegance” will be evident in all our wines. We will have stronger focus on luxury wines and a dedication to over deliver on quality for all our wine ranges.
The passionate team at Hemera Estate are constantly looking for ways to continue to provide their customers with high quality premium wines and experiences. Hemera Estate is a five star James Haliday rated winery focusing on sustaining its future as a premium Barossa winery.
We look forward to seeing you in our cellar door at 1516 Barossa Valley Way Lyndoch open 10am to 5pm 7 days a week.
