PACKING A PUNCH IN LOVEDALE
It might be one of the smaller vineyards in Hunter wine country, but Lucy’s Run certainly packs a punch, with a trio of well-known winemakers on board, and a range of
Lucy’s Run is a boutique 9 acre vineyard in Lovedale, and has been producing award-winning single vineyard wines since 2002. Featuring Shiraz (two trophies, count ‘em!), Merlot and Verdelho (including the very luscious Sweet Sophie), Lucy’s Run wines are crafted by a trio of top Hunter winemakers: Mike De Iuliis, David Hook and Nick Paterson.
Drop in (bookings are advised) to the cellar shed - yes, shed! - to meet Brad and Heather Wright, and sample a range of their wines; you might even get the chance to sample their hand-made spices and olive oil. Lucy’s Run is also home to Woof Woof wines,created to support PetRescue.
And just who were ‘Lucy’ and ‘Sophie’? Both were dogs that belonged to the property before Brad and Heather bought Lucy’s Run in 2015. ‘Lucy’ had the run of the place (see how that works!), and ‘Sophie’… well, she’s the name behind the much-loved ‘Sweet Sophie’ dessert-style Verdelho.
When you’re next in Lovedale, head over to Lucy’s Run - they’re open Friday, Saturday, Sunday (and most public holidays) 10am-5pm. Brad and Heather will share a warm welcome and a few stories with you over a glass or three! Bring along your doggos too, as Lucy's Run is dog-friendly!
