HEARTLAND: Heartland Wines were started by a group of friends in 2001, all of whom have worked within the cogs of the wine industry for years. The Heartland owners are Ben Glaetzer, Grant Tilbrook, Scott Collet, Geoff Hardy, Vicki Arnold, Gino Melino and John Pargeter. The team is actively involved in all aspects of the business - from growing the grapes, winemaking and marketing to selling the wines.
There are three ranges under the Heartland Wines label - Heartland Stickleback, Heartland Coast & Creek and the flagship Director's Cut Shiraz. All Heartland wines are made with fruit from mature vineyards in the Limestone Coast and Langhorne Creek in South Australia.
