Located on a sand hill wedged between the Murray and Goulburn Rivers upstream from Echuca, Cape Horn Vineyard is named after the riverbend resembling Cape Horn on the tip of South America.
A novel way to visit Cape Horn Vineyard is via horseback or horse drawn carriage. Billabong Ranch offers a fantastic horseback winery ride along the rivers & through beautiful Australian bushland.
Wood Fired Pizza’s are available ALL Weekends and during School Holidays or by prior arrangement. Cheese Platters and coffee also available.
The vineyard is situated on the banks of the Murray River in the middle of the Echuca State Forest. The vineyard was originally established in the 1870s.
After lying fallow for 50 years, the property was bought by Sue and Ian Harrison and re-planted with a variety of grafted grapevines, including Marsanne, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Durif and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Only 15kms from Echuca, and accessible by car or boat, you will be rewarded with a delightful experience tasting our award winning wines at cellar door. The grounds are perfect for enjoying your picnic lunch and barbeques are available. A giant chess board, boule or croquet are available for your use.
Cape Horn’s philosophy is to produce high quality boutique wines that reflect the unique terroir of the vineyards’ distinct microclimate, rich sandy soils and native eucalypt surrounds, whilst maintaining fruit-driven varietal characteristics.
Today Cape Horn Vineyard offers visitors tastings at the cellar door of a fine selection of wines made from our own fruit. We encourage guests to pack a picnic and take the short trip to the vineyard, just 15km by road East of Echuca or 30min upstream on the river by speed boat.
