Welcome to Lawer Estates - a family-owned, sustainably farmed, limited production winery known for ultra-premium wines with a strong sense of terroir and bold varietal character. On summer days, coastal breezes make their way through the gap in the hills and up the creek that meanders through our vineyard. This cooling prevents premature maturation, boosts acidity and infuses our wines with unmistakable character.
Complementing this ideal microclimate is a subterranean volcanic reservoir that nurtures our vines year-round, and provides essential hydration even in times of drought.
Nurtured by renowned Vineyard Manager, John Pina, the hillsides on our estate vineyards provide a diverse range of soil types, slope, ground moisture and microclimates which have proven ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Viognier and Petite Syrah.
This range of viticultural elements creates an environment that is perfect in its imperfection, an environment that consistently produces exceptional fruit with bold character and sense of terroir.
Our fourth generation winemaker, Cary Gott, is renowned for his winemaking experience, regional wisdom and his creative gift for bringing out the best in our hand-picked, terroir-driven fruit.
Discover Lawer Estates. Bold. Distinctive. Memorable.
Betsy and David Lawer
