Hemera Estate

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

Hemera Estate was originally founded by Darius and Pauline Ross in 1999 as Ross Estate Wines. The name change came about in '12 after the business was sold to Winston Wine. This purchase also saw renewed investment in the winery, vineyard and tasting room, and a focus on consistently producing high-quality wines. Running very much on an estate basis, the winery and tasting room are located on the 22ha vineyard in the southern Barossa Valley; it’s primarily planted to shiraz, followed by cabernet sauvignon and 1912 planted grenache, with smaller plantings of cabernet franc, mataro and tempranillo. Exports to Japan, Thailand and Singapore. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Hemera Estate is located at the southern end of the Barossa Valley which allows our winemaker to produce wines that are respectful of the grape varieties from which they are made and the vineyard from where the vines are grown.
We produce a range of estate grown wines sourced from vines aged between 30 to 108 years old. As well as sourcing premium parcels of fruit from selected growers across South Australia.

Hemera also produces a range of Limited Release wines that enables us to showcase the most unique wines of a particular vintage, whether it be from a specific block from one of our growers or a variety that has proven to be outstanding in a given year. This collection enables us to bring to you the in their purest form the wines that have most excited us in the winery.
