Savina Lane (formerly Back Pocket) is a small vineyard on Back Creek in the foothills of Severnlea, in the Granite Belt wine region.

It was purchased in 2012 by Brad and Cheryl Hutchings, who are managing the vineyards on sustainable principles, focussing on alternative varieties. They built a part-underground cellar door which opened in April 2015.

The new Cellar Door has a beautiful tasting terrace overlooking the lake and vineyard and is open Wednesday to Saturdays 10am to 4pm. In winter visitors are able to enjoy their wine tasting seated in deep leather armchairs in front of the log fire with views of the vines through a huge picture window.

Savina Lane has released just six wines so far and three of these have won gold medals. The remaining three all have bronzes. Visitors will be encouraged to wander through the vines at their leisure.

Their wines are made by renowned winemaker Mike Hayes from Symphony Hill

Savina Lane is also believed to be home to Australia's largest plantation of Italian Stone Pines (158 Pinus pinea). Planted in October 2001 these trees will eventually yield the first locally grown, organic pine nuts.
