The Lane Vineyard personifies rural Australia yet is a mere stone’s throw from Adelaide in South Australia. Hidden in the Adelaide Hills, just 3kms from the historic village of Hahndorf and a scenic 25-minute drive from Adelaide CBD, you will quickly feel a world away.
The modern Dining Room sits elevated in the heart of the vineyard overlooking the picturesque Adelaide Hills, perfect for a relaxing get away or business lunch. Discover the subtlety of The Lane Vineyard’s single vineyard wines paired with a harmonious menu designed by Executive Chef James Brinklow featuring the best South Australian produce.
The dining room is open Wednesday-Monday
In January this year, The Lane Vineyard's head chef James Brinklow and his team were once again awarded a coveted AGFG Chefs Hat for 2018.
Every year Australian Good Food & Travel Guides Chefs Hats are awarded to discerning Chefs around Australia. These awards are the result of careful deliberation. Inspectors appointed by AGFG dine anonymously and their reviews along with the votes of the dining public, who generously send in their comments throughout the year, determine the results.

James Brinklow (known as Jimmy) joined The Lane Vineyard in 2009, following an impressive start to his young Chef career, working in some of Adelaide’s most outstanding restaurants including the Mona Lisa and Auge restaurant. Upon joining The Lane, Jimmy was able to forge an innovative and contemporary path, championing local regional produce alongside estate grown premium wines, with the mantra of pursuing elegance in simplicity.
Over the years, Jimmy has evolved the dining concept introducing a range of menus, with the inclusion of a 'Chef's Table,' for bespoke dining experiences, to more casual outdoor dining, for the launch of The Lane's new outdoor terrace. An exciting new addition to the Kitchen, will be James' new vegetable garden, which will allow him and his team to work with the very freshest of ingredients.
