Highlands Road Estate

Contemporary stylish multi award winning boutique winery, making elegant wines in a magnificent setting in the cool Elgin Valley

Started in 2004, Highlands Road is the culminating dream of Michael White, who identified Elgin as one of the top areas for producing Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. With the planting of the vineyards and the building of the cellar, we now have the ability to complete that dream.

Hoping to provide the full winery experience, our exclusive estate contains not just a wine cellar and tasting room and a restaurant with decks overlooking the dam. We believe that wine is more than what is in the bottle; it is the memories that go with it. To this end, we have attempted to make our estate not just a place to taste wine, but a destination to experience it.

The picturesque setting at Highlands Road Estate will keep you occupied for hours, and that’s before you’ve tasted their wines! Already with a string of award-winning Sauvignon Blancs to their name, this young winery is set to impress. With a collection of wines including elegant white blends, MCC, Rose, Pinot Noir, and a robust red blend dubbed “Ruadh”(Scots Gaelic for red) you will be spoilt for choice. Be sure to enquire about their Port and Dessert wine for a real treat. If you’re lucky, you’ll be served in the chic tasting room by the passionate owner himself , or else be left in the capable hands of his enthusiastic young team. The water-side café serves up simple, bistro-style foods, with a wood-fired pizza oven ready for action on the weekends. Keep an eye on their social media pages for updates on special events such as Italian evenings, Family days, picnics and much more. An ideal spot to bring the whole family.
