Wines for Joanie, TAS  163 Glendale Road, Sidmouth Tasmania 7270
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!
