We visited Brands Laira in the middle of winter, as part of an 80th birthday celebration (June 2015). We were given a very warm welcome, enjoyed the wines very much and went back to buy some more a day later! Highly recommended.

We visited five cellar doors in the area and Brand's Laira was a standout. The wines were exceptional, the staff helpful and knowledgeable, and we even got a look in the 'old cellar'!

The wines here are everything you want from the Coonawarra, and make great examples of the area. We enjoyed our tasting,which included some older vintages as well as new. This winery most sticks with traditional grape varieties, but the tasting list still shows nice variety. We loved the old family wine cellar, which looks like a set piece from a... More

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.

There's not much more you would want from a winery than what Brands Laira has too offer.Wines are top-notch, atmosphere is relaxing and plenty of history to go along as well (Make sure you have a peek at Eric's Shed - for the real wine enthusiasts). 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.
