The Lane Vineyard

South Australia | Adelaide Hills

Our Review

After 15 years at The Lane Vineyard, Helen and John Edwards, and sons Marty and Ben, took an important step towards realising their long-held dream - to grow, make and sell estate-based wines that have a true sense of place. In 2005, at the end of the (now discontinued) Starvedog Lane joint venture with Hardys, they commissioned a state-of-the-art 500t winery, bistro and cellar door overlooking their vineyards on picturesque Ravenswood Lane. Having previously invested in Delatite and much earlier established Coombe Farm in the Yarra Valley, the Vestey Group (UK) took ownership from 2012. Exports to all the UK, the US, Canada, The Netherlands, Belgium, UAE, Hong Kong and China.

About

The Lane Vineyard has been the custodian of an enviable piece of pristine Adelaide Hills terroir since the first vines were planted in 1993. Sitting 400m high atop the rolling hills adjacent the Onkaparinga Valley, the vineyards enjoy the warm days and cool nights that the Adelaide Hills Wine Region is so famous for. In addition to the vineyards and wines, the Lane estate is home to an acclaimed contemporary restaurant and tasting room where, just 3 kilometres from the historic village of Hahndorf and a scenic 25-minute drive from Adelaide CBD, visitors quickly feel a world away. The Lane Estate is a true destination for the senses and we are passionate about creating and delivering sophisticated, prestigious and memorable sensory experiences that are thoughtful expressions of their place of origin. The four distinct tiers of wine produced at The Lane – Heritage, Estate, Provenance and Lane series, are all crafted with this vision to honour and preserve the unique ‘sense of place’ you feel when visiting our estate.

Specialities

Shiraz, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Arneis, Syrah, Pinot Meunier.
