Darlington Vineyard is situated on a 2 hectare site located a kilometre from the sheltered waters of Prosser Bay on Tasmania’s Freycinet coast.

The vineyard takes its name from the historical settlement of Darlington on nearby Maria Island; the site of an audacious vineyard experiment established in 1885 and abandoned a decade later.

The dry east coast conditions and the hungry soil provide Darlington with its unique terroir. Personal attention to each vine and low cropping rates ensure small berries and intense flavours in our elegant cool climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

Description

Wine tasting and cellar door sales. Come and taste the elegant cool climate wines and enjoy the view over Prosser Bay to the historic convict settlement of Darlington on Maria Island.

Darlington Vineyard has 5000 vines of four varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc.

The annual yield is between 7 and 10 tonnes.

The trellising method used is vertical shoot positioning and the aim is to produce 2kg of fruit from each plant. The rows face north east on a sloping block allowing the cool air to drain out the bottom of the vineyard and emolliate the effects of frost. The vines are hand tended and picked ensuring the utmost care.

Mail order available. Free freight for case lots.

Cellar doors sales and wine tastings available at the vineyard.
