Very pleasantly surprised by the offering at Brand's. Have always known them for a very, very good ready drinking range but was blown away by their top shelf wines. Extremely good across the range offering and knowledgable and friendly staff.

Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, But most of all very welcoming, nothing better than... More

Great service, friendly atmosphere, and great wines. None would have been out of place in any cellar. A truly great tasting experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Brands. Wine tasting was very good, and there were plenty of staff on to accommodate the Easter rush. We were lucky enough to have a peek in the old cellar. there are some real gems lying here.

Coonawarra is such an accessible wine area, all wineries are within a very short drive of each other. Brands Laira is a beautiful winery, beautiful tasting area with a viewing room of the old cellar. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and informative and offered the range for tasting. Coonawarra is great for their reds, however not as big and... More

Brand's Laira winery has a special feeling that you can nearly taste. Needless to say we really enjoyed the experience: a charming and knowledgeable host, great wines for tasting and history and character oozing from every corner. A high point was a visit to the cobwebbed old cellar at the end of our visit. Not to be missed.

The old cellar is spectacular, and so are the staff and the wines. Instantly attached to the Chardonnay ( big surprise for a red wine person) and the Tall Ships Shiraz, so joining the member's club was a given........and you get discounts for a mixed six pack which is freighted home for $10. PS: the Tall Ships Shiraz is only... More
