The Perfect Setting

Just off the beaten track, tucked quietly away, is a hidden gem. Between the bustling capital cities of Melbourne and Adelaide lies Coonawarra, the internationally renowned wine region and home to Brand’s Laira. 

Brand’s Laira is an iconic winery, steeped in heritage with a wealth of old vine vineyards dating back to 1893. Nestled in the heart of the famed “terra rossa” strip of the Coonawarra region in South Australia. Brand’s Laira offers a range of elegant yet richly flavoured premium wines from this distinct region.

The Cellar Door

Centred on the original stone building of Eric Brand's Cellar, the newly renovated Cellar Door takes you on a journey through time to explore the history of Brand's Laira, making it the perfect setting to enjoy a guided wine tasting.

Brand’s Laira cellar door has recently been refurbished by a local South Australian team, making it a go-to Coonawarra winery. 

A large, expansive interior welcomes guests to our Coonawarra cellar door, with a striking ceiling that shelters and preserves the legendary Eric’s Shed (our original Cellar Door) and a relaxing but modern indoor dining area, lounge, and fireplace.

The stunning vineyard views are framed by floor-to-ceiling windows that open out onto the deck and lawn so that guests can enjoy the alfresco dining area.

Cellar Door Tastings

Open seven days a week, the Brand's Laira Winery and Cellar Door offer a range of tastings of our award-winning and Cellar Door exclusive premium wines. Crafted from some of the oldest vines in Australia, many of our wines taste exceptional when young and cellar brilliantly.
