In 1995, prominent Western Australian Cardiologist, Dr Geoffrey Lane, purchased a picturesque parcel of virgin farmland in Wandering, Western Australia to establish a premium table wine vineyard. Since then, Geoffrey, together with his wife Christine and three sons, Andrew, Peter and Jonathan has developed the property from the ground up, hand planting almost 30 acres of vines, comprising a range of varieties including Shiraz, Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling and Zinfandel. The family has also lovingly restored the family homestead that now boasts magnificent views over the entire estate and surounding National Park.
Wandering is located in Western Australia's 'Peel' wine region, approximately 1.5 hours south of Perth. Its warm, even summers, cold winter conditions and extremely deep fertile soils, make it an ideal wine growing region. The Wandering Lane estate epitomises the essence of boutique vineyard life-style where 'work hard, play hard' has always been the family motto. Anyone who visits the property can immediately see the love and attention to detail that has gone into every aspect of the venture.
