Lochiel Estate is a small boutique vineyard, planted back in 2002 We grow Chardonnay, Merlot, Malbec, Syrah and Pinot Gris, producing approximately 1000 cases per year, with all of our wines made only from our own grapes grown in Brook Lane. The wines are also made on site in our small but modern winery by our son and winemaker Rob Cameron of Invivo fame.
Wines are Chardonnay, Merlot/Malbec, Syrah, Pinot Gris, Rosé and The Laird – a fortified Malbec.
Lochiel was the first vineyard to be planted in this beautiful spot at the foot of the Brynderwens. It is now well known for producing delicious full-bodied Chardonnay and as years go by the red varieties are developing into something unique and special.
We encourage visitors to come and enjoy the surroundings – bring a picnic and enjoy a glass of wine under the pergola or in the garden.
We are also a B&B of 3 rooms all with views out to the vineyard, ensuites, with each room having its own outside access to the patio and the vineyard beyond. A 3 course dinner is available when booking and of course matched with Lochiel wines. We strive to offer only the best and we feel sure you will pleased you came!
