Behind the scenes


Lazy Ballerina is owned & operated by myself James Hook and my wife Miriam Bourne and our extended family. 

Together we make and sell limited edition wines made from selected parcels of grapes. We live on site and love to host guests and talk wine, family, politics and music.

Our home is nestled among lush gardens opposite the majestic Kuitpo Forest, near the great tourism locations McLaren Vale and Willunga. Visiting us makes a great day trip from Adelaide or weekend away. We have food available for your enjoyment.

We sell most of our wine from our cellar door but you can buy our wine online.

Please join our mailing list for VIP invites to events, specials and perks or the contact us by email to join in the fun.
