About The Lane

On a balmy summer evening after a long day working at the 500cc Moto Grand Prix in Magny Cour, France, John Edwards had dinner at a farmhouse restaurant on the banks of the Loire River. Drinking local wine he thought of his time as a young cellar hand in Australia and mused “One day I want to make wine like this”. He had just encountered his first experience of wine with a true sense of place.

Read on to find out how The Lane story progressed from a simple holiday thought to the wonderful wine and location we have today!
