    University House members and guests are invited to join Peter Lloyd who will present a variety of wines from his family's estate, Coriole Vineyards.

    Coriole was started by the Lloyd family in the 1960s. It is a beautiful spot looking south towards many McLaren Vale vineyards, the old Willunga Range and the Fleurieu Bight. The estate has a lot of Shiraz vines, the oldest planted in 1919. They have also had great interest in finding new and exciting varieties for the Australian table, starting with the Sangiovese vineyard planted in 1985, the Fiano vineyard (2001) and the Piquepoul vineyard planted in 2010, all three varieties pioneered in Australia by Coriole.

    The Lloyd family continues to manage and develop the Coriole estate with the third generation now at the helm. They are also celebrating their 50th birthday since releasing their first wine in 1969. A tasting not worth missing!
