Lazy Oak

Lazy Oak are a small family owned vineyard situated in the picturesque hills of the Mudgee region, New South Wales, Australia.

In 2015 they purchased a well established vineyard for the "view". Today they manage the vineyard and have just completed their second vintage.

Paula Hanson and David Riley thought they were buying a lifestyle property where they could raise a family together when they bought a pocket of land in the picturesque Mudgee hills.

But the lure of one of the finest winemaking regions in Australia and their 10 acre vineyard was too much for the couple and five years after moving in, they were not only making wine, but winning awards for it.

Initially, the couple was able to just settle in and not worry too much about maintaining the vineyard. They were fortunate enough in the first three years to have an agreement with their neighbour to maintain the vineyard in exchange for the fruit - making their life very lazy.

For Paula and David, it was a great deal. They got their beautiful block and someone else did the work for them. In that time, they started their family and welcomed two children, Grace and Henry into the world. Today they manage the vineyard and harvest their own grapes to use in their production.

While they had named their vineyard after the single oak tree on the property and with dreams of lazy days in the Mudgee sunshine, their venture turned out to be a busier lifestyle than originally planned – but infinitely more rewarding. Their hard work has paid off with Lazy Oak winning a Bronze medal at the Mudgee Wine Awards.

Lazy Oak Vineyard is located at Eurunderee just outside Mudgee. Sales are via private wine tastings and virtual cellar door.
