Great Lakes Winery is a real ‘find’… so many people keep coming back because they feel welcome, and it is simply a beautiful spot to relax.
The wines speak for themselves – a great range is on offer, with most palates being catered for … from dry to sweet. There is always at least one wine in the range that suits the taste! Everyone is welcome at Great Lakes Winery – don’t feel like you have to know anything about wine to come to this winery for a tasting. The philosophy of ‘taste it and see if you like it’ is all you need to know and is practised at Great Lakes Winery.
Having bought the winery in a pretty run down condition back in 2000, Steve and Robyn have created a destination for locals and tourists. Year after year regulars return, interested to discover the new vintage wines and catch up with what’s new – newcomers are also very welcome! The winery is constantly evolving.
The ‘rustic outdoor room’ has been created from the existing old bails (from when the property was a dairy farm) and is a wonderful, undercover, cool space great for groups and functions, positioned beautifully at the top of the ‘back paddock’. Having grown in popularity enormously in the past 8 years, Great Lakes Winery hosts groups from all over the country. Steve has a developed an impressive reputation for delivering an informative and interactive ‘hosted tasting’, with feedback along the lines of “The best wine tasting I have ever been to,” being cited constantly. Word is getting out, with many advanced bookings for group tastings and luncheons!
While the wine is resting and the functions have eased, Steve finds time to take good care of the black Angus herd of beef cattle that has grown over the past few years. Applying sustainable farming practices, Great Lakes Great Beef has been born and supplies hormone free, milk and grass fed yearling beef to its customers. While a ‘tree change’ to some people may invoke thoughts of relaxing on the verandah with a glass of wine, the Great Lakes Winery family have created three businesses to keep them occupied and have made the tree change life something very special that they would like to share with you.
