READ ABOUT Dandelion Vineyards Winery...
Dandelion vineyards is a unique fusion of vineyards and vignerons between the Lindner, Rey and Brooks families. At one end is the boisterous Zar Brooks, and his wide Elena whom looks after the winemaking duties. At the other are vignerons Carl and Peggy Lindner ably assisted by Fiona and Brad Rey. Despite being a rather motley crew, the Dandelion wines have in a short period of time made a very large splash, anointed in 2011 by James Halliday as one of Australia’s ten best new wineries.

Part of the great strength behind Dandelion is the quality vineyards they have identified and chosen to source their fruit. This includes a quite spectacular 100 year old Riesling planting in the Eden Valley, from which they produce the Wonderland Riesling. Also in the portfolio is the Wishing Clock Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Twilight of the Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Lions Tooth McLaren Vale Shiraz Riesling, Pride of the Fleurieu Cabernet Sauvignon and Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz.


Dandelion Vineyards Background Information;

At Dandelion Vineyards we really do ‘wish you were here...’

Our vineyards are our family, their wines our children. Serious stuff, certainly. Proper fun, absolutely. The lifelong search to appreciate and understand the essence of wine, its terroir, leads us on a vinous treasure hunt, following the Dandelion's Wishing Clock if you will, that always inspires.

Dandelion Vineyards are proven plantings that have stood the test of time. We grow our own grapes and source from the best of family vineyards. Our wish is to nurture the unique character of these vineyards and express their terroir in our wines.

We believe that to capture variety, vintage and vineyard requires an enlightened approach. Separating single sites, and even single soil types, vine by vine if need be. Dandelion Vineyards is a unique fusion of vineyards and vignerons.

Our wines represent decades of experience, blending the fruit of our heirloom vineyards with the finest traditions of artisan winemaking. Dandelion Vineyards combination of old vineyards and young winemaker and a couple of mates to help out in-between which we believe makes for the ideal winery.

Wish you were here. Cheers all the Dandy Lion’s;

Elena Brooks Winemaker & Trophy Wife, Brad Rey Vigneron & Canadian at Large Carl Lindner, Vigneron & Old Vine Champion, Madison the Dog, Zar Brooks, Typist & TBA.


Reviews and Accolades


"This is a highly impressive partnership between Peggy and Carl Lindner, Elena and Zar Brooks and Fiona and Brad Rey. It brings together vineyards spread across the Adelaide Hills, Eden Valley, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Fleurieu Peninsula. Elena is not only the beautiful wife of industry dilettante Zar Brooks, but also an exceptionally gifted winemaker. It may be a dauntingly competitive marketplace, but there can be few more promising new ventures than this one."
James Halliday 2013 Australian Wine Companion
