Firehawk Farm


Our Firehawk Farm

Firehawk Farm is a 60-acre property perched atop an ancient ridge overlooking McLaren Vale, the Willunga Escarpment and the Gulf of St Vincent. Firehawk is our native bird of prey that soars over our vineyards acting as scarecrows to other birds, rabbits and the like that eat ripening grapes. Below the surface there’s limestone, ironstone and the 40 acres under vine include, Grenache, Shiraz and Petite Sirah.

The Vineyard

The vineyard is certified bio-dynamic since February 2022. Elena spends a lot of time in the vineyard, she believes “the winemaker must be respectful of the vineyard and grapes. That’s my key. I like to call myself a lazy winemaker because if I spend a lot of time there, getting to know the vineyard and the fruit, it makes it really really easy in the winery.” 

Dandelion Vineyards and the Firehawk Farm vineyard are certified members of Sustainable Winegrowing Australia. This proves our commitment to continuously improve our sustainability in the vineyard and winery through the environmental, social and economic aspects of our business.
