The farming history of the Anderson family dates back to the beginning of the 20th Century. To provide a better life to his family, Peter Anderson and his whole family moved from Scotland to South Australia and established a farming presence. The hard-working ethos continues in the family to this day. 

Ben and Clare Anderson Ben and Clare Anderson


Brian Anderson, and his son Ben, purchased 32 acres of land in Lenswood, Adelaide Hills in 1994 and developed it into a vineyard. The family focuses on producing high quality wine grapes and premium wines. Since Brian's passing, Ben and his wife Clare have continued to run the family business.

Ben spends the majority of his time in the vineyard looking after our vines and making sure the grapes are growing well. If you can’t find him in amongst the vines, there's a good chance he is working with our winemaker in the winery, meeting with our business partners locally or overseas or just hiding somewhere with a glass of our award-winning Pinot Noir!

Clare is the artist in the family. As a previous art school student, she loves gardening, pottery, and drawing things that inspire her. She is the one who draws our beloved A Series labels every vintage. Most of the time, you will meet her when you come to our cellar door for some wine tasting or a relaxing lunch as she also runs our cellar door restaurant. Clare is the best person to talk with if you want to know about things like the local flowers and birds, the best photo spots around Fox Creek trail and where to go in the Adelaide Hills to find great local produce.


Their two sons James and Matthew also plan to get into the wine industry after graduating from school. As of 2021 James has commenced the study of oenology at the University of Adelaide. We believe we are building a long-lasting family brand for our future generations.
