Lake George Winery

New South Wales | Canberra District

James' Review

Lake George Winery was established by legend-in-his-own-lifetime Dr Edgar Riek, who contributed so much to the Canberra District and the Australian wine industry. It has now passed into the good hands of Sarah and Anthony McDougall, and the plantings of 40-year-old chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, semillon and merlot have been joined by shiraz, tempranillo, pinot gris, viognier, pinot noir and malbec. The winemaking techniques include basket-pressing and small batch barrel maturation under the expert eye of Nick O'Leary.

About

Within a stones throw of it's namesake Lake George and established in 1971, Lake George Winery comprises one of the oldest vineyards in the region. Arrive in time for a delicious brunch created by chef Matt Morrissey who has created a menu focused on a ‘paddock to plate’ experience, or stay and play over lunch while watching the vines grow.
New owners Sarah and Anthony McDougall have exciting plans for the property, including an organic approach to wine growing, locally sourced produce, and an aim to support local businesses. Visit the cellar door or restaurant with kids or dogs in tow, and sample wines that have been highly rated by James Halliday.
