The beginnings of The Lane started as John Edwards searched for two years for land with the just right situation, orientation and soils he wanted for his vineyard. When he walked through the old farm gate on Ravenswood Lane he believed that this land would be the realization of that dream. This combination of knowing what he wanted, an exhaustive search and a bit of luck provided the perfect property for the grapes he was to plant.

While making great wine The Lane Vineyard also believes that wine labels should be authentic and reveal something specific about the identity of where that wine came from or as they say 'a genuine sense of place' or what the French call 'terroir'. What on the label The Lane Vineyard call, ‘the grain of truth’. On the labels of The Lane you won’t find your usual back label inscription, instead they use geographical coordinates called 'longitude and latitude' to pinpoint which vineyards the grapes came from. You can input the coordinates into Google maps and see the vineyards. This is just one example;
The restaurant at The Lane has one of the most beautiful views of the Adelaide hills and has received many accolades from numerous sources like, Gourmet Traveler Restaurant Guide 2013, SA Life and People’s Choice. There aren’t too many wineries that can boast a restaurant within the vineyard and fewer still which open for lunch seven days a week. The food is matched to the wine so you really can’t go wrong, and if you just want to graze there are plenty of plates to share while taking in those amazing views.
The Adelaide Hill’s Wine Region is producing some amazing wine and The Lane Winery is a leader in the region.
Koala rates The Lane in the Adelaide Hills of
a “must do” for the wine,
for the food and for the place! South Australia
Happy Tasting Adventures,
Kiwi & Koala
