READ ABOUT Lake's Folly Winery...

Dr Max Lake and his family planted the single site to Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Shiraz, Merlot and Chardonnay with a view to creating only two premium wines in limited quantity. The winery and vineyards were purchased by Peter Fogarty, who continues the premium operation and ideals, with the assistance of winemaker Rodney Kemp.

Lake's Folly Location

Located on a single estate in Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley, Lake’s Folly is a visionary vineyard site that occupies a natural amphitheatre. The historic site was planted in 1963 by Dr Max Lake, a pioneer of boutique winemaking, and all wine is grown, vinified and bottled on the estate.

Lake's Folly Wine Types

Lake’s Folly only produces two wines - a Chardonnay and a Cabernets blend styled in the vein of prestige Bordeaux wines.

Lake's Folly Brands

Lake’s Folly is the core brand, however Peter Fogarty also owns Deep Woods Estate and Millbrook winery in Western Australia.

Lake's Folly Winery

Lake’s Folly maintains a very traditional approach to winemaking in the original 1960s winery – older oak and minimal intervention are key, with an eye for exacting quality. These are wines of sublime quality, showing great complexity and inherent power.
