Lanes End Vineyard is at the end of a winding country road, a hidden treasure at the foot of Mount William near Lancefield in the Macedon Ranges in Victoria Australia.
Lanes 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.
"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.

We are unfortunately in the position where when you don't have something, everyone wants it!! This is our plight with our Pinot Noir 2013. However there is still some stocks at certain liquor outlets in Kyneton, Woodend Wine Store or Malt & Vine in Newport, so give them a ring-phone numbers in our retail list in the Buy Wine Section. Good luck!
Promise of things to come!! Nothing like new French oak!
