This family owned winery is operated by Hamish and Kate Laurie who both come from a long line of winemakers and tradition. Over years of working in the industry right around the world, they ended up in the Adelaide Hills where they take their wealth of experience to make some of the Hill’s best cool climate whites, reds and in particular sparklings.
Continue through the Adelaide Hills to our next winery, Longview Vineyard. Situated towards the township of Macclesfield, Longview is regarded as one of the region’s most picturesque wineries, ever popular for day trippers in the region who are keen to taste some of Longview’s cool climate style whites and reds.

Enjoy a regional platter lunch within one of the wineries of Langhorne Creek showcasing some of the produce from the regions.
Lake Breeze Winery lies on the banks of the Bremer River and is surrounded by majestic River Red Gums. The winery has been operating since 1987 when the Follett family decided to go into the winemaking business. Previous to this the family had interests in cattle and grape growing, with some vineyards dating back to 1932. This puts them in a position to select the top 25 percent of grapes from their own vineyards for the making of their high quality wines.
