Lane's End Vineyard derived its' name as a result of being located at the end of a country road called Mount William Road. Mount William Road winds its way around the foothills of the Macedon Ranges town of Lancefield in Victoria Australia.
Lane's End Vineyard was originally planted in the mid 1980's.
Located at 580 metres above sea level on the southern slopes of the Great Divide, the vineyard is perfectly suited for the growing of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Here's their story
"Our philosophy is very simple ... to produce the best possible fruit from our vineyard and with minimalist intervention turn these into the highest quality wine possible.
Results came a little sooner than anticipated with our first Barrell fermented Chardonnay, the 2005, winning gold medals at numerous wine shows and the Laurie Williams Trophy for Best Wine of Show at the Macedon Ranges Wine Exhibition in 2008.
We have seen that by harnessing the great potential of our fruit, we can make wines that compliment foods and our lifestyle.

Budburst at Lane's End 2014
The Budburst weekend was a great success starting with a wine dinner held at Mr Carsisi in Piper St Kyneton on Friday 14th Nov. A six course dinner with matching wines from Lane's End, Hesket Estate & Cobaw Ridge.
Our newly released Isanda Chardonnay & Pinot Noir 2013 were matched very well with seafood & Confit duck respectively.
The rain gods were especially kind with 27mm of rain falling between 11pm Saturday night and 6am Sunday morning!! Freshened everything up without the dissruption of rain during the day. It was great to see so many people enjoying a picnic atmosphere in the surrounds of Lanes End, listening to the great Spotted Quolls, feasting on Cheese Kranskys or Falafel kebabs, sipping on Lanes End's finest, kids running amok and generally having a great time. To all that came, a big thank you and to those who missed out, see you next year at Budburst.
