I have attended a number of events (sport, expos, entertainment, at this Estate and each and every one has been a pleasure to attend - well organised, good parking, safe, and well cared for gardens and facilities. Always something in bloom and a great place to take photographs! Excellent restaurant! Booking advised.

Superb wine tasting experience with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic somelier, ended up purchasing quite a few bottles, and some yummy spice grinders for the kitchen. The grounds and situation of this estate are simply beautiful, and I would love to return on a sunnier day!

We visited the Estate in summer and winter and enjoyed it as much each time. In the summer the greenery and beautiful surrounds are lush and vibrant. In the winter they are stark but as beautiful. The wine and chocolate and wine and turkish delight pairing has to be experienced. Wine tasting can become rather staid but the chocolate and... More

We have been here many times to visit the restaurant, Millhouse, which is excellent but we recently tried a wine and chocolate pairing. From the moment we walked in till we left we had a fantastic experience. Friendly and well informed staff. Great chocolate and wine. We will definitely be back.

We popped into Lourensford Wine Estate towards the end of the day but were still graciously welcomed and provided with an informative wine tasting, including the honey liquor which would be great over a good quality vanilla ice cream. The service was impeccable and the young gentleman who assisted us was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We really enjoyed the MCC... More

We visit Lourensford on a very regular basis, although we no longer drink wine. There are many places of interest and opportunities to relax besides the wine tasting and cellar. There is the Coffee Roasting Company - very good freshly roasted coffee, the restaurant where we occasionally go for breakfast or lunch - good food and service, the cheesery, and... More

No other wine estate has created wines specifically to complement different varieties of chocolate. A delight for the palette!

The Sunday Market at Lourensford is a "must visit" for locals and tourists alike. The grounds of this most beautiful of farms are immaculate and in autumn even more breath taking. The market offers creative, interesting and delectable fare and the atmosphere is wonderful. Do visit the Art Gallery and quirky Art Studio as well. Then there is wine to... More
