Geoff Weaver’s vineyard at Lenswood high in the Adelaide Hills is devoted to grow the richly flavoured grapes that produce his wines. The natural terroir is fully expressed in his wines which are made with little need for winemaker intervention.
Since the release of the first wines in 1985 Geoff has built a reputation as one of the Adelaide Hills’ finest wine producers.
Modest crops of fully ripe grapes grown in a cool climate are the basis of the quality and style.
BUSHFIRE UPDATE: Posted on Geoff Weaver’s website on December 20, 2019.
A devastating bushfire that tore through the Adelaide Hills on December 20 badly damaged our property. We lost our two sheds, all equipment, 80 of my paintings, a cabin and my car. About 40 per cent of the vines were also affected, mostly by radiant heat. Time will tell if they reshoot and survive to produce more wine.
So many across our beautiful part of the world have been touched by this disaster. My thoughts are with everyone who has suffered losses, particularly neighbouring farmers in Lobethal and Lenswood. It’s a dark time, but I feel sure the community will recover, replant and rebuild.
My family and I are very grateful to everyone who has asked how they can help. Please consider making a donation to the Country Fire Service. Crews from across the Adelaide Hills did a wonderful job during and after the blaze.
We would also really appreciate you purchasing our wine, whether through the website or from your local bottle shop. Many thanks for your support. Here’s to brighter days ahead.
