We are passionately committed to creating expressive cool climate wines that are a true representation of Tamar Valley.
Our priority is to offer an authentic Tamar Valley wine destination and experiences that create opportunities for connection and promotion of the region to both local and international visitors.
We will continue to use organic agricultural practices and in time, we aim to expand the vineyard with new plantings and to build a larger cellar door. We warmly welcome the local community and our loyal customers along on this journey.

Group Operations Manager
Over the last twenty years Rachael has worked in many facets of the wine industry, from the details in the laboratory to wine tourism and destination development. In 2007 Rachael was awarded ‘Cellar Door person of the year’ in McLaren Vale, the reward was a trip to any wine region in Australia – she choose to explore Tasmania and fell in love with the breathtaking scenery and cool climate wines that are at their best in a region such as the Tamar Valley.
Ryan has established his career in viticulture working in New Zealand, Oregon, Yarra Valley and Margaret River. His love for viticulture, working with the seasons, the wines and the people are what gives him energy to keep going even when the weather doesn’t cooperate. Ryan is a firm believer that organic management produces more resilient vines, wines and communities. Organic Viticulture promotes a biological system with a greater connection between the wine, the vine and the place they are grown. Ryan is passionate about achieving organic certification and seeing how the wines express themselves under this management.
