Lark Hill Winery was established in 1978, at 860m on the escarpment overlooking Lake George, just outside of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. The vineyard was planted that winter and the first vintage released in 1981. The vineyard is in an environmental protection zone and is home to many species of birds and wildlife.

The fruit is hard grown and the vines very low cropping in a cold dry environment; vintage is in April, and the fruit has great concentration and intensity. Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are particularly suited to the vineyard, although Lark Hill has had enormous success right across the range of their wines.

The Lark Hill team was started by Dr Dave and Sue Carpenter, with Sue completing a Bachelor in Applied Science: Wine-Science from Charles Sturt Wagga Wagga. Their son Christopher has completed chem/biochem at ANU and has transfered to a double-degree in Wine-Science/Viticulture through Charles Sturt Wagga Wagga. Chris joins Sue and Dave as an integral member of the wine-making team.

From 2003, Lark Hill has been farmed using Biodynamic Principles, and certified by NASAA.
