When Darren and Lucy Golding established Golding Wines and put their first vintage to bottle in 2002 they did so with confidence knowing that the fruit sourced from the family vineyard Darren had planted with his parents Greg and Connie, seven years earlier was coming into its own.
Today their, now expanded, Western Branch Vineyard, located in the Lenswood appellation of the Adelaide Hills remains at the very heart of their business. It is the exclusive fruit source for the Golding Wines range, and the home of their busy cellar door and functions business.
We are passionate about our life and work in this dynamic cool climate region and firmly feel our sense of place here. Our family have been working the land in these Hills for three generations.
Our focus has always been on creating expressive and approachable cool climate wines. The style of wine that we like to drink and share with friends: wines that ultimately speak of our place here in the Hills.
Our philosophy is simple; great wines taste even better when shared in beautiful surrounds. So we set out with a vision to create a beautiful space for our guests to enjoy. Our cellar door and garden unfolds as the backdrop to a place perfect for sharing the good things: great wine and food in the company of others.
We invite you to join us in the experience.
Darren and Lucy Golding
