Pooley Wines

Premium Tasmanian Wines

Pooley Wines Top 5 Star Rating James Halliday Wine Companion


Pooley Wines is a five star rated multi award winning Tasmanian family winery located in the heart of the  Tasmania’s famous wine producing region, the Coal River Valley. Pooley Wines is a leading producer of premium cool climate wines
and hosts the:

Gourmet Traveller WINE Magazine Award –
“Best Small Cellar Door”
Southern Tasmania 2014 & 2015.

The historical property and two separate vineyards in the Coal River Valley have built a reputation for the production and quality of cool-climate wines such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and world class Riesling. These award winning wines are available through our cellar door at the historic Butchers Hill Vineyard in Richmond, by mail order through this web site, or from selected suppliers and exclusive restaurants.

Members of the Pooley family have been actively involved in the business for three generations with their longstanding passion and commitment to fine wine being your assurance of uncompromising quality. It is this enthusiasm and love towards wine making that has created their mantra ‘Perfection is our passion” – a mantra that is shared and practiced by all staff across the business today. They are proud to be recognised for their environmental approach to wine making by becoming the first and only fully credited environmentally sustainable vineyards in Tasmania.

2012 Vineyard of the Year &
2012 Pinot Noir Producer of the Year

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. This was in recognition of the winery’s outstanding performance in production of quality wines, as Pooley Wines amassed a total of 18 Gold Medals and 2 Trophies at the highly acclaimed Tasmanian Wine show in 2012.


Recognised for our modern and environmental approach to leading viticulture practices by ENTWINE Australia (national wine industry’s environmental assurance scheme), Pooley Wines has achieved status as

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).
