Wineries

Priory Ridge wines

A boutique vineyard offering sales & tastings in an historical setting on the owner’s ancestral property. Priory Ridge Wines is located in the rural setting of Priory; the most northern vineyard on the Great Eastern Drive (Tasmania’s scenic East Coast), the only vineyard cellar door in the St. Helens area; just 10 minutes from the world famous Bay of Fires and Binalong Bay.

 

 

Freycinet Vineyard

Inspired by the tremendous opportunities of the East Coast of Tasmania, Geoff and Susan Bull cleared the site in 1978, planted the first vines in 1979 and established the first commercial winery on the East Coast.  They were early pioneers in a new region which years later revealed exciting quality potential in wines.  The region now boasts over a dozen different vineyards.

The Freycinet Vineyard and Winery is family owned with daughter Lindy Bull and her partner Claudio Radenti taking over the family tradition of gently handcrafting the wines.

Devil's Corner Vineyard

At Devil’s Corner we are dedicated to creating the finest wines imaginable, but
in doing so we’ve had to make a home in one of the wildest places in Tasmania.

Just how much we can achieve is ultimately decided by the forces of nature.

It’s a beautiful struggle, being caught between Devil’s Corner and the deep blue sea.

Craigie Knowe Vineyard

The cellar door is located right in amongst the vines, plenty of seating with a fire pit and bean bag chairs outside, or inside with cosy heaters in the rustic cellar door.  Our Gourmet vineyard plates and cheese boards are available everyday we are open.  Our wine and chocolate is a match made in heaven.  Choose form our chocolate experience (3 x 50ml wines with 6 matched chocolates) or wine and chocolate (1 glass of wine with 2 matched chocolates).

Milton Vineyard

Location: 42° South
Milton Vineyard was first farmed in 1826 initially for fine Tasmanian wool but is now producing fine cool climate wines. We are located at 42 Degrees South on the dry sunny Freycinet Coast of Tasmania. The grapes are grown on free draining red loam liberally sprinkled with dolerite rocks.

Tasmania lends itself to boutique vineyards. Our vineyard has a unique micro-climate that suits the ancient grape Pinot Noir. Also in our 13 hectare vineyard are plantings of the aromatics Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. Our focus is on producing small quantities of handmade wine. Close attention is paid to every detail in the vineyard and the wines represent this exacting work.

Our cool-climate wines are grown and made on-site here in Cranbrook, on Tasmania's stunning Freycinet Coast.

We are Pinot Noir specialists, but also produce other delicious varieties including Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
