Lavina Wines

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

Lavina Wines is owned by Sam and Victoria Daw, who continue to rapidly build and expand the Lavina brand along with its sub-brands and private label to both domestic and overseas markets. The estate vineyards surrounding the winery are strictly showpiece, with an odd combination of 1ha of cabernet franc and 0.5ha of shiraz. The vast amount of the intake comes from over 40 contract growers and wineries with 8000ha of vineyards, the degree of difficulty being increased by the preference for biodynamically-grown fruit. The winery itself is state-of-the-art, with a new generation mechanised sorting table, and equipped with every other bit of whizz bang equipment needed. Exports to most major markets. -JAMES HALLIDAY
