The Property

Longview Vineyard is 65-hectares of breath-taking rolling hills, vines and sweeping views

A picturesque location

Longview is a stunning family owned Australian vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills. Set on undulating slopes reminiscent of old-world estates but unmistakably Australian, it has quickly established itself as one of the most awarded vineyards since its 2001 inaugural vintage.

Perfectly manicured vines, towering gum trees, gently undulating hills and big blue skies make up the backdrop at the stunning Longview Vineyard. As well as lush foliage and landscaped gardens, the property features rural-chic architecture that knits together this quintessential Australian landscape. This grand imagery has made the Longview experience an essential wine journey.

Originally a dairy for most of the 20th century, Longview produces an exciting portfolio of wines - all of them single-vineyard estate-grown. Key to this award-winning range is the valley landscape, with red varietals grown on the northern slopes where they ripen consistently, and white varietals grown on the southern side where the cooler aspect allows the grapes to maintain their acidity. 

Longview is located on the South Eastern Ridge of the Mt Lofty Ranges and at our highest point (410m above sea level), a “long view” stretches out toward the Southern Ocean and Lake Alexandrina. This southern location accounts for a slightly higher than average temperature than the rest of the Adelaide Hills, while the altitude confirms it as a true cool-climate site. During the summer, warm days are followed by cool winds shifting from the southern waters off Lake Alexandrina and the coast. Consequently, these conditions result in a very high diurnal range which is quite site-specific and provides a remarkable breadth of flavour profiles in the grape berry.

Central to the Longview experience, our Cellar Door and kitchen stands as a bold expression of modern rural style and promotes Longview Vineyard as a key destination on the Adelaide Hills food and wine trail.

Formed from the original 1918 cottage of local pink sandstone, the building reflects the rusted ironstone and quartz soils on which it is built. Recycled timber and steel, street-art, a vaulting roof-line and floor to ceiling glass: this is a tasting room that is as dramatic as the sweep of the hills themselves. Furthermore, an ever-evolving menu of prime local produce can be enjoyed together with premium or casual wine tastings. Relax, take in the beautiful surrounds from the deck, or settle in by the fire.

Gorgeous 4-and-a-half-star accommodation

Our Suites and Homestead are where you come to recover from your work week, recoup after a wedding or simply relax for a few days to breathe in the fresh air.

Marvel at the millions of stars, while you drink in the spectacular views of Longview Vineyard from your own private balcony.

Longview’s Suites are luxurious rooms with modern amenities, balconies and kitchenettes, all housed in contemporary architecture and beautifully juxtaposed with the majestic surrounds.

The newly renovated Homestead is the perfect lodging for a group or an indulgent retreat for two. It can also be used as one large residence or four private space: Shiraz, Pinot and two Homestead Units. The Homestead has become a mainstay for Longview’s guests, using it as a base to explore the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula, as well as being the perfect place to stay while enjoying a wedding here.
