LEVIN Wines is a family-owned, certified organic winery that has been producing wine in France’s Loire Valley since 1986. David Levin MBE (founder of the five-star Capital Hotel, The Levin Hotel, Michelin-starred Greenhouse Restaurant and The Capital Restaurant, dining at Royal Festival Hall, and Visiting Professor at Oxford Brookes) began growing grapes in the Loire Valley to produce private label wines for his restaurants. Inspired by his visits to Australia to use new world technology to capture this old world terroir, David had a winery designed in South Australia and built on the estate in 2001. Today, Lynne Levin (who’s international career includes on- and off-trade, supply chain distribution and export market penetration, and in 2016 named Mentor of the Year, Oxford Brookes Masters mentoring programme) manages the domaine and LEVIN Wines’ export to 14 countries. Lynne has overseen the expansion of production to 150,000 bottles per year and the conversion to organic certification.
