The Deadman Lake vineyard at the entrance to the golden mile is a vineyard that Le Vieux Pin does not own, however we control the vineyard under a long term contract and guide all the farming practices. Part of the fruit that went into Our award winning 2009 Equinoxe Syrah Cuvee was grown on this amazing site.
