Burke & Wills enjoys a Golden Weekend ....

Saturday July 31st 2015 ...

Burke & Wills Winery was the second most successful exhibitor at the 2015 Saint Martin Heathcote Wine Show (Chairman of judges Tim Kirk of Clonakilla Winery), winning nine medals across the range of wines, including Burke & Wills 2015 Gewurztraminer and 2013 Shiraz, both Vat 1 and Vat 2, Mr. Burke's Favourite Big Red (Shiraz) 2014, Dig Tree Viognier 2014, Dig Tree Merlot 2012, Dig Tree Cabernets 2012 and a gold medal for Burke & Wills The Aristocrat Cabernet Merlot 2013.

On the same day the 2016 James Halliday Wine Companion was released, with Burke & Wills Winery retaining a 41/2 star rating, and a 5 glass (gold medal equivalent) rating and 95 points for the 2013 Vat 1 Shiraz, cited by Halliday as 'Heathcote at its best'. is the website of Andrew Pattison, founder of Melbourne's famous 'eighties music venue The Troubadour, former owner of Lancefield Winery in Victoria's Macedon Ranges, and nowadays owner and winemaker at Burke & Wills Winery in the famous Heathcote wine region.
