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).

The Halliday Wine Companion rated 2005 as the perfect vintage in Southern Tasmania and we can't help but agree. The Coal River Valley has 3 microclimates which have all been instrumental in producing such unique and diverse styles of cool climate Pinot Noir over the last three decades. Visit our cellar door in Richmond to learn more about one of our most iconic vintages. And you never know... you may even be able to purchase a limited number of bottles of Tasmania's history.
