Lenswood, Adelaide Hills

Lenswood is a wine sub-region of the Adelaide Hills, South Australia, which is close by the towns of Lenswood, Lobethal and Balhannah. It is one of just two recognised sub-regions within the Adelaide Hills wine region, east of Adelaide city.

The sub-region was registered as an official Australian Geographical Indication(AGI) appellation in October 1998 due to its unique micro-climate thats sets it apart from the Adelaide Hills as a whole. Since then, Anderson Hill has been one of the passionate advocates of this cool-climate region for producing premium quality wines. Most of the wine producers in the region are also passionate about sustainable farming and protecting this beautiful area, which serves to enhance the regions reputation which is rapidly gaining recognition.

Lenswood is one of the coolest wine regions in Australia, its climate is very similar to the classic French regions such as Burgundy and Champagne, which makes it a perfect place to grow delicate varieties like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and produce crisp and refreshing Sparkling and Rosé. 

The Lenswood region is also famous for apples and cherries, which you can find on our cellar door restaurant menu when they are in season.
