Winery LAKE'S FOLLY

Established by the late Dr. Max Lake in 1963, Lake's Folly is Australia's first boutique winery. The vineyard, the first established since the early 1900s, was planted on the volcanic and alluvial soils adjacent to Rosehill, in the lower Hunter Valley. 'The vineyard is everything' underscores overall winemaking philosophy. Lake’s Folly is best known for their elegant age-worthy White Label Cabernet blend and Yellow Label Chardonnay.
