Elegant cool climate wines from the Coal River Valley in South East Tasmania.
The first "Old Block" of vines at Coal Valley Vineyard was first planted in 1991 by Drs. Margaret and Gradon Johnston who recognized a good vineyard site when they saw one. Over twenty years later the vineyard, with steep slopes facing due north, has a steady track record of producing award winning, elegant, true cool climate wines.
We purchased the property in late 1999 and, keeping it family owned and run, have been adding on since then with a strong focus on sustainability. Twelve acres of vines are now planted out mainly to Pinot Noir but also to Riesling, Chardonnay, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Our aim is to make the best wine we possibly can and know that good wine starts in the vineyard so all the vines are hand pruned, checked on daily and all the grapes are hand picked ensuring only the best quality fruit is used to produce the Coal Valley Vineyard wines.
Our cellar door is perched just above the Old Block, with sweeping views of the Coal River Valley, Pittwater and Barilla Bay. We are open for wine tastings and sales Wednesday to Sunday from 11am to 5pm from SEPTEMBER to MAY. We welcome group bookings of any size for wine tastings and also cater for a number of functions so you can enjoy the beautiful views, tranquility and seclusion of the site and our very special wines.
