Golding Wines is situated on the outskirts of Lobethal, within the Lenswood appellation, high in the picturesque Adelaide Hills.

Our philosophy is simple; the best wines come from great vineyards and taste even better when shared in beautiful surrounds.

It was with this in mind, we set out with a vision to create a beautiful space for our guests to enjoy whilst surrounded by our Western Branch Vineyard. Our cellar door and ever-evolving garden unfolds as the backdrop to a place perfect for sharing the good things: great wine and food in the company of others.

At our Western Branch Vineyard you can leave the bitumen behind you and wind up the driveway, past ancient gums to find a lush garden and landscaped terraces surrounding our family built sandstone barn. Over the years the Barn has experienced life as the farm shed, the vineyard workshop, the family home and the location for many a family celebration. Now home to our Tasting Room, our Ginkgo Restaurant and the location for many events and weddings, it remains at the very heart of all that we do here at Golding Wines.

We welcome visitors to our place seven days a week, offering wine flights, platters and cheese boards daily through our Tasting Room, and a lunch menu from Friday to Sunday through our Ginkgo Restaurant. Our Head Chef, De Buys Nortier, has crafted our Ginkgo menu to embrace the season’s finest produce, with a strong focus on locally sourced ingredients, some straight from our own kitchen garden.

Whether you are visiting us for a wine tasting, a delicious Sunday lunch or an immersive vineyard experience we welcome you to experience the very best of the Adelaide Hills at our place.
