5 Lazy Acres Wines

In 2002 a moment of madness provoked Richard Smith to convince his partner in wine, Liz Blanks, to move to 5 Lazy Acres of a high yielding, vigorous beast of a vineyard set in the deep sandy alluvial soils of Mclaren Vale.

When Liz protested “Only the deranged and the delusional buy vineyards!”, Richard in his typically optimistic fashion responded with “Can’t be too hard… it’s only 5 Lazy Acres!” Hmmm she mused “Dream of being bone idle on the vineyard do you?”

Richard won the argument and the two city slickers packed their bags, donned their gumboots and the hard work of taming the beast began.
