Featured Winery: Hemera Estate
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 Ross and his wife Pauline. This rich land is home to an abundance of quality vines with many different grape varieties including the defining 101 year Old Vine Grenache.
The word “Hemera” is of Greek origin which means “goddess of morning light”. This name was chosen to highlight 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 our 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. He prides himself on producing wines that have consistency, balance and elegance. 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 premium Barossa Winery.
We look forward to seeing you in our cellar door.
