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

A great time had trying Brands range of wines and we were lucky enough that a bottle of their flagship one seven one Cabernet was open and on offer to taste. I really appreciate when wineries make their better or more expensive wines available to taste as it gives a great indication of what their premium wines taste like.

The wines... More

My visit started as a pilgrimage. Eric Brand has known me since the day I was born, almost 70 years ago, and as I wanted something special to celebrate my "70th", I decided to visit Laira to buy wines that I had an affinity to. Unfortunately the man I wanted to see was not there, as at 95 he was... More

We spent a wonderful hour at the Brand's Laira winery sampling their wonderful selection of wines. They even had an older (2003?) variety to taste for July. The young lady serving us was very informative - and even let us look into Eric Brand's original 'cellar'.
