Merindoc Cellar Door

Our Merindoc Cellar Door is the ideal place to discover the diversity of the Heathcote Wine Region and the balance and elegance of our wines.

Come and visit us each weekend to find out our weekly wine specials at our Cellar Door.


For three generations the Shelmerdine family has been among Victoria’s most prominent grape growers. With two vineyards in Heathcote we offer a variety of wine styles. Wines on tasting include Riesling, Viognier, Chardonnay, Grenache Rosé (dry), Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Syrah-Grenache-Mourvedre, Cabernet Sauvignon and of course Shiraz. The Merindoc property is also a working farm running sheep and cattle and there is a large kitchen garden adjacent to Cellar Door.


Merindoc recommends our local Tooborac accommodation, two Cottages and a Homestead, all within a 5km drive, providing bed and breakfast facilities for our guests and visitors to our region. Contact Sue Anderson or call (03) 5433 5341 for bookings.

We are coming down at Christmas time and looking forward to visiting you. We are particularly interested in trying the viognier as we have sampled it in several places in Canberra. We don't need accommodation but we will make a booking for your Bistro.

Thank you Kate, look forward to seeing you at our Cellar Door. Cheers Steve Oates
