Named after the riverbed resembling Cape Horn on the tip of South America. Cape Horn Vineyard is located on a sand hill wedged between the Murray and Goulburn Rivers and just 15 minutes drive from Echuca. Just a short drive along a 8 km of sealed road and 6 km of gravel road that leads to a stunning, secluded and peaceful setting with wide water frontage and vineyard surrounds.
The Vineyard was first planted to Shiraz grapes in the 1800's serving the thriving River Boat trade. Being half way between Echuca and Barmah, Cape Horn was a convenient stopping spot for the river boats. The vineyard and winery evolved as a consequence. Cape Horn was also a popular picnic spot for day trippers from Echuca in the 1900's.
The Vineyard has been re-established, with the planting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Durif, Marsanne and Zinfandel vines.
We are proud to present to you today a new and improved Vineyard which combines modern conveniences with a historic feel, set in stunning riverfront surrounds.
