Heartland is that place between the vines with the best view of the gum trees. When they first got together to start Heartland all those years ago, the idea was to embrace the best Australian fruit could offer and create wines of balance and texture with a uniquely Australian identity. They found a pure expression of this identity in Langhorne Creek. This has remained the chief source of their fruit ever since.
Grant Tilbrook, Scott Collett and Ben Glaetzer form the backbone and foundation of Heartland Wines. Grant had been an important part of Scott’s continued success with Woodstock Wine Estate in McLaren Vale. A partnership seemed an obvious progression. By working together they are able to create their shared dreams faster and better. Grant was one of the first to recognise Ben’s true potential and it wasn't long before they had formed a plan to make a range of unique and impressive wines.
