Lightfoot & Sons

Victoria | Gippsland

Our Review

Brian and Helen Lightfoot have established pinot noir, shiraz, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and merlot; the lion's share to pinot noir and shiraz. The soil is very similar to that of Coonawarra with terra rossa over limestone. Most of the grapes are sold (as originally planned) to other Victorian winemakers. With the arrival of Alastair Butt (formerly of Brokenwood and Seville Estate) and supported by son Tom, production has increased and may well rise further. Second son Rob has also come onboard, bringing 10 years' experience in sales and marketing.
