Without a doubt Coonawarra is one of the wine world’s hidden gems, known as the ‘other red centre’ and internationally renowned for producing some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. Coonawarra is home to Brand’s Laira, one of the region’s first small wineries and owners of some of the oldest vineyards dating back to 1893.
Situated in South Australia, about halfway between Adelaide and Melbourne, the region is famed for its small yet perfectly formed ‘terra rossa’ strip. This refers to the unique soil type and its rich terracotta colour. This combined with a long cool ripening season and a permanent supply of pure underground water makes Coonawarra perfectly suited to creating outstanding expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon.
The good people of Brand’s Laira understand that Coonawarra is not the easiest place to visit, so are bringing the Brand’s Laira Cellar Door to you during Good Food Month Night Noodle Markets. The Cellar Door has been handcrafted to give you a real taste of the region, the brand and its heritage.
The Brand’s Laira Cellar Door is the perfect place to sip and savour multi-award winning wines alongside an exciting array of Asian cuisine whilst soaking up the festival atmosphere. There will be a fantastic array of wines on offer including classic Coonawarra Cabernet, refreshing white wines and even a cheeky Rose direct from our Cellar Door. The team have also managed to raid the Chief Winemaker’s cellar and there will be a limited amount of Flagship One Seven One Cabernet Sauvignon available – the 2015 vintage was recently awarded the trophy for ‘Best Coonawarra Cabernet’ at the globally renowned International Wine Challenge.
The Brand’s Laira team can’t wait for you to come down and discover one of Coonawarra’s best kept secrets. Grab a seat in Eric’s Shed, sit back and relax and enjoy the range of wines on offer at the Cellar Door.
