Our Story

Golding Wines is a progressive and dynamic family owned winery situated on the outskirts of the township of Lobethal, high in the picturesque Adelaide Hills of South Australia.


The family vineyard was established by Darren Golding, together with his parents, Connie and Greg, in 1995. In 2002, Darren and wife Lucy launched the first Golding Wines vintage and haven't looked back. Together they have taken the business to where it is today, managing a thriving cellar door and a busy functions business.

Lobethal, and neighbouring Lenswood, are regions traditionally known for their top grade apple orchards. A local fruit merchant, Greg was well acquainted with the area and realised the potential of the region for growing premium quality grapes; free draining soils, mild summer days, cool crisp nights and plenty of rainfall.

The family property now includes over 80 acres of vines, including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Savagnin varieties. Over the years, we have supplied fruit to some of Australia's most recognised wine brands; Hardy's, Tatachilla, Petaluma and Yalumba.

Today, our passion is the creation of premium cool climate wines that genuinely break new ground. The majority of our range is made with only the most outstanding hand selected fruit from our own estate vineyards, providing a captivating reflection of our region's unique character.

The Western Branch property remains a much loved home for our family. We regularly welcome guests from around Australia and overseas, many of whom have chosen our stunning vineyard as a unique location for weddings, birthday parties and other special celebrations.
