Producer Heathvale

Feature full heathvale

Moving to Eden Valley and the old ‘Heathvale’ property in the mid 1980’s we learnt bits about its history from local residents until a chance visit by one of William Heath’s daughters, in her 90’s, opened up a whole new dimension for us.

Over a cup of tea on the veranda we discovered that it had been a producing vineyard and winery in the late 1800’s until early in the next century. We were duly sent a lovely hand written letter containing information and copies of photographs of William and Fanny Heath, the original owners and 2 of the homestead taken in 1884, one during vintage. To our delight, four original wine labels of “Heathvale Vineyard” were enclosed.
