The beauty of Longview goes beyond its spectacular vistas. It also happens to be perfectly situated to grow both white and red varietals equally well with the natural gradient of the vineyard’s vast slopes being carefully chosen to suit each varietal. In planting the vineyard, northerly facing slopes were planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Nebbiolo while our classic cool climate white varieties (Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Chardonnay) which require less radiation are on a southern aspect. Longview wines are all from our single estate and therefore much of the work to provide depth and character is completed in the vineyard. Each block is serviced differently in order to build complex flavour profiles which are then fermented separately and blended to make the wine of any one vintage.

With a site perfect for Macclesfleld’s unique micro-climate, Longview Vineyard produces exceptional fruit for graceful cool climate wines. The Adelaide Hills is traditionaliy known for its white wines but Longview pushes the envelope with some of the most awarded reds of the region. With a drive for elegance and balance, complexity and longevity, every berry in every drop of Longview is grown on the estate. The quintessentially Australian blends of the cheeky Red Bucket Range pack a punch beyond their price; the single varietals of Longview’s Estate Range exhibit a purity of fruit that showcases what the vineyard does best; and the Elite Range takes the very best fruit Longview produces each vintage and, using only the finest oak, meticulous wine making and luxurious packaging, sends wine to astronomical heights.

The sense of place attached to Longview Vineyard is also strong-and wine lovers who have made the 4O minute drive south east of Adelaide to Macclesfleld are Ieft with indelible memories. Towering gum trees among perfectly manicured vines. Gentle rolling hil1s. Big blue skies and lush foliage surrounding rural architecture that speaks with a strong Australian accent. This grand environment provides the perfect backdrop to experience Longview’s single vineyard wines and makes a visit to Longview’s cellar door an essential wine journey.

Supremely popular as a wedding venue, the charming Longview Vineyard function room accommodates up to 150 guests for any event. Expertly renovated from the property’s original dairy and hayshed from the 1920s, the function room stands as a bold expression of modern rural style. Two open f,replaces, rugged timbers, stone and  alvanised iron lead on to sweeping verandahs offering pristine picture views over the vineyard. Inside the main room a wide wall of windows offers a panorama that is unparalleled anywhere in the region. This rustic, peaceful setting makes a function at Longview an experience full of wonder and one that ensures rich memories.

Under the direction of brothers Mark and Peter Saturno (both with a lifetime of food and wine experience), the pervading sense of hospitality aims to be even richer. With no task being too large, all staff at Longview have a hand in making every function, no matter how big or small a personalised affair with a relaxed flair for detail. Perfectly paired with Longview’s stunning wine, elegant multicourse banquets or even simple cocktail celebrations are built around exciting menus from Longview’s resident chefs Stephanie Heaven and Louise Naughton, who have enjoyed a strong relationship at Longview and are true champions of promoting prime local produce.
