Great food and wine is best shared, this is the central philosophy at Lou Miranda Estate. Named for their father Lou Miranda, the three sisters, Lisa, Angela and Victoria run the boutique Barossa winery, cellar door, and restaurant with charming devotion to good old-fashioned Italian hospitality.
Tell us something about you (or your wine) that we don’t know.
All our wines are produced from our Estate owned vineyards, the 100 acres are on four sites located at a maximum of 8 kilometres from winery. We are privileged to be custodians of four centenarian old vine blocks in Southern Barossa Valley, the oldest dating back to 1897. Our dedication to vineyard management is carried through from barrel to bottle.
Give us one word that sums up Barossa.

Lou Miranda Estate Sagrantino; this wine is an all out food wine, it will compliment most dishes. The wine is made light and spicy with bright blueberry and liquorice flavours.
You have been given a cloak of invisibility. Whose wine do you go and grab a bottle of at Barossa Be Consumed?

What’s your perfect night in (or your perfect night out)?
The measure of a great night out always ends with dirty bird and karaoke at LeSing.
