All Saints Estate

Wahgunyah, VIC
Yorta Yorta Country

All Saints Estate along the Murray River is a family-owned winery with a rich history dating back to 1864.

Located on Yorta Yorta Country in Wahgunyah, northeast Victoria, All Saints Estate is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. Recognised for its historical and architectural significance, the estate encompasses not just land and buildings, but also landscape elements, trees, and the infrastructure and objects associated with the site’s early wine-making history.

The owners of All Saints Estate engaged GML Heritage Victoria (formerly Context) to provide heritage advice, a heritage impact statement (HIS) and obtain a heritage permit for proposed works to the site.

Technē Architecture + Interior Design (Technē) took on the design and documentation of the project, which involved demolishing the existing restaurant, interior alterations and refurbishment of the cellar door area inside the 1884–1895 above ground cellar building, adding a new restaurant to the northeast corner of the above ground cellar  building, façade restoration works, alterations to the Indigo Food building, designed by architect Philip Cox in 1968, and associated landscape works. Before preparing the HIS for the heritage permit, GML provided feedback on the project’s concept design.

The completed works by Technē pay homage to the estate’s existing cultural values and architectural and landscape characteristics, blending modern design with carefully selected materials and finishes.

The project has been shortlisted in the Heritage Architecture category at the 2024 Victorian Architecture Awards and in the Hospitality Design category at the 2024 Australian Interior Design Awards, highlighting its exceptional approach to preserving and enhancing this heritage-listed winery and creating a world-class visitor experience.
