About No.7 Healesville

Located in what has emerged as Healesville’s most exciting new precinct, and with neighbours such as Four Pillars Gin distillery and Payten & Jones Wines, No.7 Healesville will encompass a state-of-the-art communal urban winery, events space and cellar door which will showcase the wines made onsite by an exciting new wave of wine makers.

With access to winemaking facilities and equipment for wine production becoming increasingly difficult for young winemakers, an idea was formed by the Frazer family (Stones of the Yarra Valley, Meletos, The Stables at Stones) to provide a facility for Australia’s next generation of winemakers to produce small batch wine in a professional and supportive environment under the No.7 Young Winemakers Program.

In addition to the Young Winemakers Program, No.7 will also offer a unique Vintage Membership program for it's Coterie members to get involved with the winemaking process. This innovative and interactive membership will see the fusion of food, wine, new friends and good times over a series of unique winemaking sessions held throughout the year.

The operation of the winery will be managed by Head Winemaker Kaspar Hermann (previously winemaker at Mount Mary, Coldstream Hills, Yering Station, Punch Winery and Onannon) and features world-class equipment including a Scharfenberger de-stemmer and press. From the day the fruit arrives, to the moment the bottle is labelled, No.7 has the capacity to facilitate all aspects of the winemaking process on site. 

A Cellar Door, Tapas Bar and events space alongside the winery will offer a unique food & wine experience to showcase the best regional produce and wines made on-site.
