Established by Ron and Elva Laughton in Heathcote, Victoria, Jasper Hill is one of Australia's most respected and sought-after producers of cool climate Shiraz. A family owned and operated business, the winery has been producing vintages for the past 34 years. With Ron's name being synonymous with great Shiraz, so too is his daughter Emily's who has been involved in the viticulture and winemaking since 2001. Emily's husband Nick also works in the cellar, while her sister, Georgia works in the cellar door. Grown in the area's rare Cambrian soil, Jasper Hill's wines are all made from estate-grown grapes, cultivated using organic and biodynamic principles from vineyards planted in 1975. The portfolio of Shiraz and aromatic whites is derived mostly from their two famous vineyards: Emily's Paddock and Georgia's Paddock. The dry-grown, hand pruned vines result in low-yielding fruit with a depth of color and flavor. A similar mantra continues in the winery as the winemakers attempt to 'interfere' as little as possible.
