Brothers Rob and Tom Lightfoot are the second generation to manage their family’s vineyard in the remote Gippsland Lakes region where they specialise in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Shiraz.

Located between the Dividing Range and Bass Strait, the region is Victoria’s most easterly viticultural area. The heart and soul of the family business is their Myrtle Point Vineyard positioned high on an exposed plateau of Terra Rosa soil above a limestone bluff.

The wines are made by Tom Lightfoot and Alastair Butt.  Alastair brings more than 25 years of winemaking experience to the winery, working previously at Seville Estate in the Yarra Valley and Brokenwood in the Hunter Valley.  Tom worked a number of vintages in wineries throughout Australia and the USA (making Pinot Noir in Oregon) after completing a Viticultural Science and Wine Production degree.  Tom now manages the Myrtle Point vineyard and assists Alastair in winemaking.
