Established 1988 in Rowella, the Tamar Valley TAS, and located on latitude 41'10'35"S allowing for the production of cool-climate wines.
The nearby Tamar River has an influence on the climate and our mild growing season. With loam over clay soil, we average 50 tonne of grapes annually, and are hands on; with hand picking, pruning, and vine cultivating.
We have been busy and very elated to be offering our newly refurbished homestead cottage. Our historic cottage surrounded by stunning gardens forms part of the property and was designed in 1907 by master architect, Alexander North (1858-1945), whose renowned designs are celebrated today in several significant buildings in Launceston.
With our newly refurbished cottage we can now offer a more cozy wine-tasting environment and light luncheons (made from locally sourced in-season ingredients) complimenting our exceptional cool-climate wines.
Our Cottage is open (view map) and will coincide with our vineyard times.

We pack a lot into our small vineyard... the more than 23,000 (23,776 to be exact) vines are grown on a well kept "Modified Lyre Trellis", and with 5Ha under vine, including the varieties Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, with some varieties not common in small Tasmanian vineyards.
With loam over clay soil and irrigating from our 20 mega litre dam (relying on rainwater to drip irrigate our vines), we average 50 tonne of grapes annually.
Our vineyard is very hands-on with seasonal hand-picking harvests and old-school pruning.
