Derwent Estate is a family owned and operated wine business at Granton in Tasmania’s south. Just 20 minutes north of Hobart, the largest city in Tasmania, the vineyard is nestled perfectly on north facing slopes which run down to the Derwent River, a perfect aspect for the production of cool climate wine grapes.
Plenty of prevailing westerly winds keep good airflow through the vines. Air circulation is critical in helping to keep the vineyard disease free. Located at 42 degrees south latitude this is genuine cool climate viticulture. Tasmania is rapidly gaining a reputation as Australia’s premier Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sparkling wine producing area.
Derwent Estate’s cellar door is located in one of the two historic 1830’s built houses on the property. You can taste our current range of wines, talk to the people who run the vineyard and even pick up some rare wines not generally available anywhere else.
