Wine List Hall of Fame - Gourmet Traveller Wine Awards
“This impressive collection is utterly mesmerising. Select one of the many excellent local wines, to give you a regional flavour. Or choose from the enlightened selection of Australia and New Zealand’s Best. On a global front, the range is nothing short of outstanding, including a heady collection of Burgundy, grower Champagne and Italian reds.” - The Gourmet Traveller Wine Awards 2015
The Lake House wine philosophy is driven by the belief in the intrinsic relationship between wine and food; a relationship that is complementary and inspiring to one another.
The wine list is motivated by the notion of terroir and regionality – the idea that a wine can reflect, not only the grape variety and winemaker, but the soil and site from which it’s grown and nurtured. In the same manner a dish may transport you to a specific place, a wine with terroir can carry you to a far away vineyard.
Lake House enjoys an enviable location within the Macedon Ranges, surrounded by world recognised regions, such as Heathcote, Bendigo, the Pyrenees and the Grampians. Our immediate neighbours are thus generously represented within our wine list. However, it would be remiss of us to ignore the great regions of the world, particularly the ‘Old World’, that have served as inspiration for many of the great producers of this country. Subsequently, the wine list seeks representation from France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, New Zealand and the United States.
Blessed with a climate controlled cellar, Lake House endeavors to serve all our wines in the best possible state.Whether you are a wine aficionado or novice, we encourage you to engage the skills of the wine team – it is our role to maximise your food and wine experience. The Lake House wine list offers over 1000 labels from the surrounding wine regions and benchmark vineyards from around the world.
