We threw caution to the wind, left our farm in sunny Queensland and bought a little vineyard in Tasmania’s Tamar Valley.
It was a big move, but perhaps not as reckless as you think. Andrew is a Viticulturist and Prue is an Accountant. Between us we have a few handy skills, and the rest we have learnt along the way. Our intention was never to make wine, just grow amazing fruit. But we made a small batch of Pinot Noir to share with family and friends during our first vintage here. Big mistake – We were hooked!
It’s the love of sharing what we have, that has led us to where we are today. Now you can share a glass of wine and a few stories with us around our giant blackwood table, BYO picnic to enjoy, meet the animals or just take a deep breath of that fresh Tassie air and relax. We live and breathe this place, and you’ll find us here 7 days a week. Pop in and say hi, we would love to meet you!
So here we are, two Queenslanders, making Wines for Joanie in Tassie. We hope you enjoy drinking them, as much as we enjoy growing them.
I suppose you would like to know who Joanie is. Well, you’ll just have to come and visit to hear about her!
To find us follow Glendale Rd up the hill and round the corner, and discover the Wines for Joanie Cellar Door, Vineyard, Farm and Cottage.
We produce Sparkling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay & Pinot Noir from fruit sourced exclusively from our vineyards in the Tamar Valley.
