Honey Moon Vineyard

The small settlement of Echunga was the earliest to be planted to grape vines in the Adelaide Hills, in 1839, and boasts the first South Australian wine to be exported from the colony.

The  Honey Moon vineyard was established in 2004 by Jane Bromley and Hylton McLean in fulfilment of a long held dream to have a small vineyard at their doorstep from which to make small parcels of wine. The moon is a striking feature in the landscape, particularly at harvest time, when, as a full moon it appears as a dollop of rich honey in the night sky. Hence the name.

Jane had her first experience of an Adelaide Hills wine harvest in 2001, in Lenswood as a cellarhand (at the former Nepenthe, now Revenir winery), working with Peter Leske and his team. Hylton McLean is a winemaker, wine science researcher and wine educator of over 20 years. He has held senior wine-making roles in a large global wine company and, before that, was a lecturer in Oenology at the University of Adelaide and Roseworthy Agricultural College for over 10 years.

Now, together as a dream team, they are creating magnificent wines that show true varietal characteristics while expressing wonderful individualism. These wines don't stay on the shelves long.
