Wine and the Summertime

The sun is shining. As you sit overlooking the beautiful valley and picturesque vines, mellow tunes float through the breeze towards you. A waiter brings you a glass of the award winning 'Josephine' Pinot Noir and you instantly feel the stress of the working week melt away.

Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to Lerida Estate.

Established in 1997 by Jim Lumbers and Anne Caine who had a deep passion to make outstanding pinot noir, Lerida Estate has since become a James Halliday Five Star Winery and we are lucky enough for it to be on our doorstep.

The site overlooking Lake George was chosen as it resembled regions of France renowned the world over for their pinot noir. Now, whilst you sit there thinking that our humble Lake George can hardly be compared to Burgundy, France, it is worth noting that quite a lot of thought has gone into the production of these wines…so much so that, for each vintage, they employ a young French winemaker to assist their own winemaker.

If you have not yet spent a lazy Sunday out amongst the grapes, I strongly suggest you head out to Lerida Estate. Every Sunday there is live music from 12.30 – 3pm and during the Summerside Festival (which begins Sunday the 7th of February) the vineyard is playing host to a number of other events, including a wine and literary dinner, a pinot noir master class, a special Valentine's Day lunch and much, much more!
