Lake Cairn Curran Vineyard

Victoria | Bendigo

Our Review

When Ross and Sarah Ferguson purchased what is now known as Lake Cairn Curran Vineyard in 1999, they acquired not only the vineyard (chardonnay, pinot noir and shiraz), but also a slice of history, evoked by the beautiful labels. The Park Hill homestead dates back to the establishment of the Tarrengower Run in the 1840s, and the mudbrick cellar door is located adjacent to the homestead, overlooking the Cairn Curran Reservoir and Loddon River Valley. Notwithstanding that, Sarah has a wine science oenology degree from CSU, and having worked several vintages at Moorooduc Estate, makes small batches of wine at the onsite winery. However, Rick McIntyre makes the major table wine releases, David Cowburn of Kilchurn the sparkling wines. -JAMES HALLIDAY
