Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»
Josef Chromy OAM escaped from war torn Czechoslovakia as a penniless 19 year old in 1950, he fled across minefields, evading soldiers and killer dogs, ultimately finding a new home in the lucky country.

Johann Gottfried Scholz served in the Prussian army as a battlefield bonesetter, before joining the great emigration of Lutherans from Silesia to Barossa Valley. After building a family homestead along the alluvial banks of Para River, Gottfried established a mixed farm of livestock and crops, fruit trees and grapevines, Semillon and Shiraz. His acumen at healing fractures and setting splints made Gottfried a leading local identity, as his homestead cottage evolved into the Barossa's very first private hospital. Over a century later, the exceptional quality of harvest from Gottfried's original homestead, made the fruit of Willows Vineyard, an essential component in the most memorable vintages of Peter Lehmann, Saltram and Kaiser Stuhl.

The Follett family vineyard was established in the 1880's by Arthur John Follett, the great, great grandfather of Greg Follett, the winemaker. The varieties grown on the vineyard include Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Chardonnay, with small blocks of Grenache, Merlot, Petit Verdot and White Frontignac.

Lake Breeze

Lake Breeze winery lies on the banks of the Bremer River and is surrounded by majestic river red gums and overlooks the 80 hectare (200 acre) Follett Family Vineyard. The vineyards are managed by Greg's brothers, Roger and Tim, whom he relies on to provide him with consistently outstanding fruit.

The varieties grown on the vineyard include Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Chardonnay, with smaller amounts of Grenache, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Lake Breeze selects only the best 25% of fruit from the older vines for its wines, resulting in a limited crush of only 200 tonne. The majority of the fruit used is carefully selected from old vines - between 30 & 35 years old, with the oldest vines being our 70 year old Grenache.

Langhorne Creek is renown for its full bodied red wines, the grapes have an intense quality due to the location and unique natural influences. Cool afternoon breezes from Lake Alexandrina help to create a surprisingly cool climate, which allows for a longer, more even ripening period. This is coupled with deep, rich alluvial soil, which is deposited by the unique annual flooding of the Bremer River.

Lake Breeze

The old vines, which are dry grown, rely on winter flooding of the Bremer River, which emanates from rainfall in the Mount Lofty Ranges between Mount Barker and Callington. The flooding is vital to carry the vines through the dry summer months as Langhorne Creek only receives on average 14" of rain.

Flooding is carried out by utilising the winter flow of the Bremer River, through a system of floodgates and banks, which divert water onto the vineyards. From here it remains for one or two days, until the soil is saturated and is then released onto the neighbouring vineyard.

The well drained soils receive a deposition of silt during the annual floods, which ensures that the fertility remains at a high level. The 'alluvial silty loam soils' allow for excellent water holding capacity, therefore making full use of the winter floods, allowing the vine to carry through the summer months without supplementary water.

?Lake Breeze has been dishing out great value reds for a while. Greg Follett is working hard to build on foundations laid by his father in preceding decades, a winemaker keen to really engage with the region and take the wines to another level." -The Adelaide Review
