It’s a truly picturesque environment that creates the characteristic taste and flavour imparted on the wines produced. The wines have been acclaimed by some of the biggest industry names, as too the venue which is popular for weddings and long lunches.

From this location thousands of litres of wine are stocked and shipped abroad. Snug safely in the corner is the cellar museum which protects the oldest of vintages no longer available to the general public.
Regarding the vines, they were established in 1971, making Lake George Winery one of the earliest vineyards of the Canberra District Wine Region. Since 2015, the vines have undergone extensive grafting with the Shiraz grafted to the highest quality clones of Penfolds and Best’s. These vines are now bearing fruit and delivering quality wine.
Towards the escarpment a beautifully decorated homestead awaits providing additional revenue, the accommodation is popular with the bride and groom and perfectly placed for the growing demand for self-catered stays in the region. The home is comprised of four large bedrooms with the gorgeous Master bedroom opening up to vistas of the rolling vines below. The open plan living and dining is bathed in natural light and enhanced by vaulted ceilings and a substantial fireplace for those nights when the temperatures drop but the party continues. The kitchen transforms the home into an indoor/outdoor entertainment space with timber bi-folds facilitating the flow of guests towards the undercover dining alcove. A wrap around terrace opens up to the entirety of the vineyard and the perfect spot to enjoy the ambiance that is Lake George Estate.
