Australia's first boutique winery, Lake's Folly was established in 1963. A small, true 'estate' producer with only 30 Acres (12 Hectares) of vineyards, Lake's Folly's wines have been grown, vintaged and bottled on site since 1963. ONLY TWO WINES ARE MADE: a Cabernets (Red) blend and a Chardonnay, which are available in limited quantities and are highly sought, selling out each year through Lake's Folly's Cellar Door and loyal Mailing List. The Cellar Door is open 7 Days (when wine is available), but is closed for several months each year after the wines sell out. * Five RED Stars Winery - James Halliday * Best Small Cellar Door, Hunter Valley - Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine: 'Australia's Best Cellar Door Awards' 2015 * 'Most Collected Cabernet' - Australia's Most Collected Wines 2013 (Wine Ark) * 2nd 'Most Collected Chardonnay' - Australia's Most Collected Wines 2013 (Wine Ark)

If you are wine tasting in the Hunter Valley then a visit to Lake Folly is a must. Only 2 wines - Chardonnay and Cabernet. Grapes grown in their own vineyard and both are some of the finest you will find in Australia.

Open 4 to 7pm 7 days if they have wine for sale so look for signs or ring before hand. Lovely small boutique winery. I love their red but at $70 to over $100 per bottle it is at the high end of the price...More
