Overview

Lightfoot & Sons is a family owned and operated vineyard, winery and cellar door in the Gippsland Lakes district.

Description

Lightfoot and Sons is a family owned and operated vineyard, winery and cellar door in the Gippsland Lakes district, specialising in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Shiraz.

Established in 1995 by Brian and Helen Lightfoot. The family’s vineyard and winery are now managed by sons Rob and Tom.

At the Lightfoot and Sons Cellar Door, visitors are welcome to the vineyard and winery for wine tastings or to enjoy a glass of wine and local produce plate on the deck overlooking the vineyard and Lindenow Valley. Wine sales available.

All wines are 100 per cent Estate grown, made and bottled. Winemakers Alastair Butt and Tom Lightfoot embrace traditional wine-making methods as well as some more experimental techniques. The resulting wines reflect the unique character of the Myrtle Point Vineyard and the Gippsland Lakes District.

Myrtle Point Vineyard is located in the coastal Gippsland Lakes District, with the Great Dividing Range to the north and Bass Strait to the south. The vineyard is planted on Terra-Rossa soil high on an exposed limestone bluff above the Mitchell River and Lindenow Valley. A sustainable and considered approach to viticulture ensures fruit with varietal purity, and regional character.
