Situated somewhat off the beaten track our cellar door exudes an irresistible rustic charm. Our property is adorned with fabulous old English trees and our cellar door is situated in the original vertical board winery.
Greeted by a view surrounding the Cellar Door of breathtaking vineyards and orchards (keep an eye out for Tim hand pruning or Max and Will racing through the rows of vines) you can wander down the path to visit Pinot the Pig and feed him a few cheeky apples before reaching the Cellar Door.
If Bec isn’t hard at work in the winery she may even join you for a glass of wine and tell you the story of how they came to plant 12 hectares of vines in this beautiful part of the world.
Just a short drive outside of Launceston, at the end of the long and windy West Bay Road, tucked away in the rolling hills of the Tamar Valley is Tasmania’s best kept secret.

Like any good manager, Pinot the Pig wanders around keeping a close eye on the daily operations in the vineyards and winery. Pinot was supposed to be a minature pig, however has grown to be a full-size team member, with a larger than life personality, and a keen eye (and nose) for detail. Every good manager however, has a weakness - if fed a couple of fresh apples, the worries of General Management fade away and Pinot is inclined to sleep on the job!
