Viticulture & The Vineyards

“THE PERFECTION OF FRUIT IS THE CORNERSTONE OF GREAT WINE”
– Sam Daw, CEO

At Lavina, we believe in the perfection of fruit as the foundation and cornerstone of great wine. Our dedication to this means we not only harvest from our own vineyards but we also source high quality, premium fruit from select growers in McLaren Vale where site selection, elevation, soil structure, canopy balance and crop load are of absolute priority.

The majority of our premium grapes are produced from 100% biodynamically grown vines that are meticulously managed by expert viticulturists. By eliminating the use of herbicides and pesticides, the soil micro flora and fauna thrive in abundance which increases the natural flavour profile of the fruit.

The fruit from our biodynamic vineyards form the backbone and underlying structure for our super premium wines. As a result our wines show incredibly complex and layered tannin structure, allowing us to create wines that will cellar for decades to come.
