LARK HILL VINEYARD WINES
Lark Hill Vineyard was planted by founders David & Susan Carpenter in 1978. Their passion began with cool climate wines of Germany and France and so Riesling, Chardonnay & Pinot Noir were the logical first choices.
Lark Hill Vineyard is high on the Lake George Escarpment, from 860-880 meters elevation, overlooking the village of Bungendore. Ancient soils (350-450 million years old) are heavy in clays and shale, with quartz reefs adding minerality to the wines.
In 2005, Lark Hill planted the first Gruner Veltliner vines in Australia here, adding a 4th variety to this high alitude site, and a new variety to the Australian market.
