On a grey morning in July 1941, Reginald William Germein and John Crighton Edwards joined the Royal Australian Airforce. These men, Helen and John Edwards’ ancestors are the true founding fathers of The Lane Vineyard.
2010 heralded the first release of two very special wines in memory of each of these men. Understandably, we selected noble varieties from our oldest vines; vines that speak of The Lane Vineyard’s Australian sky, ancient soils, place and people.
Very few bottles of these wines are released each year, they capture the beauty of our vineyards, the personality of the Edwards family and the freedom and hope of their forefathers.
