Pooley Wines is also proud to have received the prestigious 2012 Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year Award, given annually by the Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania in association with Wine Tasmania and the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture.

Tasmania’s first and only fully accredited Environmentally Certified Sustainable Vineyard.

Along with constant care to minimise the impact of certain farming practices across our vineyards, the Pooley Wines viticultural philosophy is simple – ‘From ground to grape and grape to glass, and at the heart of all we do, our actions must never lose focus on providing the most environmentally sustainable approach to viticulture, so that the generations of tomorrow may benefit from the skills and experience of what we have learnt today.’ Matt Pooley – Nuffield Scholar 2013 (GWRDC & AGWA).



HOW DO YOU WASH UP AFTER BREAKFAST? We use steam! In fact we use it to clean our wine barrels too. Steam releases scaling from the barrel walls sanitising them, as well as detartrating and hydrating them - all at the same time. This also revitalizes the wood barrels while being safe on the char of the oak too. Who would have thought?
And on top of that, steam uses up to around 90% less water than general filling - so it's better on the environment too. Anyway, back to work....
