Climate

Situated in the north of Tasmania at a latitude of around 42 degrees south, the Tamar Valley shares the same cool climate characteristics of the Cote d’Or, Burgundy, France – equally renowned for producing wine of a world class nature.

Very few areas of the world exist in the exclusive cool climate zone – distinguishable as the ideal location for the production of superior quality fresh produce. What does all this mean?  For you - the visitor to our lovely valley - it means wines of distinction lovingly made in harmony with how nature intended.

Any time of the year is a good time to visit. Like our wines, the gentle turning seasons each boast their unique qualities.  We grow, we pick, we prune and plant allowing Tasmania’s friendly cool climate to dictate the pace.

Our harvest takes place in March & April followed by pruning over winter, then budburst in September kicks off the growing season again.

Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer are all grown here. In red wines, Pinot Noir is king.
