The Hewitson Story
Dean Hewitson was a winemaker at Petaluma for 10 years, during which time he managed to do three vintages in France and one in Oregon as well as undertaking his Masters at the University of California, Davis. It is hardly surprising that the wines are immaculately made from a technical viewpoint. Dean sources 30-year-old riesling from the Eden Valley and 70-year-old shiraz from McLaren Vale; he also makes a Barossa Valley Mourvedre from vines planted in 1853 at Rowland Flat, and Barossa Valley Shiraz and Grenache from 60-year-old vines at Tanunda. James Halliday Established in 1998 Hewitson winery is situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the historic Seppeltsfield Road and boasts some of the oldest vines in the world. Our fruit is sourced from historic, dry-grown vineyards in the Barossa Valley and also from single site vineyards in Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. At Hewitson, we believe great wines are an expression of the soils they are grown in and the season they grow. Through knowledge and experience we strive for balance, structure, concentration, power and breeding. Proudly, through solar energy, water recycling and encouraging natural biodiversity, Hewitson brings these wines to your table environmentally sustainable.Hewitson’s vineyards are spread throughout the renowned wine regions of South Australia, including the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. The heart of our winemaking is however always within the Barossa, as we produce all of our wine from our Seppeltsfield Road facilities.
Why's this wine for you?

Dean Hewitson can do no wrong. The 35-year-old winemaking veteran has a great love for the ‘Old World’ tradition, and as well as extensive hours logged in Australian wineries, has also done stints in Burgundy and Bordeaux, The Rhone Valley, Southern France and Champagne.

He knows old-vine, powerful Barrosan reds like the back on his grape-juice stained hands. But what happens when he turns his attention to Rosé?

Turns out something pretty spectacular. Made from Mourvedre and Cinsault, the 66 Seppeltsfield Rd Rosé 2021 is as lovingly crafted as the rest of the range.

It’s done in that traditional Provençal style which we all know and love, dry and savoury, zesty with citrus peel and peach and absolutely bursting with life.

Imagine ruby red grapefruit with a dash of blood orange bitters. Then add hints of macerated strawberries with a sprinkle of sugar and lemon juice. This Rosé made from a blend of 80% Mourvèdre and 20% Cinsault which one might think conjures a Southern France vibe is in fact much more reminiscent of Negronis. The richness of flavour might be thanks to those wonderful old vines, some up to 110 years of age, or perhaps the classically powerful Barossa fruit source.
