LAKE ROAD WINES began as a partnership in the early 70's with the plan of investing in premium vineyards supplying the pioneering wine companies such as Penfolds, Corbans, Giesens and Villa Maria.
As a family business, quality was always valued over quantity and through careful viticulture the vines produced many gold medals, cementing a reputation for premium wines.
In the mid 2000's after more than 30 years of viticulture, winemaking was begun with the first wines under our Lake Road label released in 2008 and exported to Australia.
Exports of our wine have since spread to China, UK and the EU. The range of wines from the four main regions offered by Lake Road has broadened to today when all major varieties are exported. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is the cornerstone of our range and this is complemented by other white wines such as Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. Waipara Pinot Noir and Hawkes Bay Merlot are the main varieties of red wine we offer and showcase the best of those individual regions.
Looking forward, Lake Road is looking to export to the United States in the next 2 years and work further with Asian markets to showcase New Zealand to these emerging markets.
Lake Road Group Ltd was incorporated in 2012.
