About_main_vines.jpg

Lansdowne is a family owned vineyard – it's where we live and work. We understand that wine is made in the vineyard and that everything we put into our backyard is seen in the glass. We aim to reflect our small estate honestly and focus on varieties that are the most suited to our sub-climate.
