Freycinet Vineyard is a family-run vineyard and winery overlooking Tasmania’s famed Freycinet National Park.
Established in 1980 by Geoff and Susie Bull, the east coast site was selected for its ideal microclimate – long sunshine hours and lean soils that encourage vines to focus on fruit not foliage. The family tradition of winemaking is continued by their daughter Lindy and her husband Claudio Rodenti.
You will observe the traditional techniques of barrel fermentation and maturation. Tight-grain French oak casks are used and minimal intervention ensures the wines retain their maximum colour and flavour.
You can sample some of the vineyard’s handcrafted wines, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling/Schonburger, cabernet sauvignon and the Rodenti sparkling, against the spectacular backdrop of the Freycinet Peninsula. The vineyard is open to the public for tastings seven days a week, 364 days a year. There are no tours of the vineyard.
Freycinet Vineyard is located approximately 15 minutes’ drive (18 kilometres/11 miles) south of Bicheno on Tasmania’s east coast. Bicheno is just over two-hours’ drive from Launceston.
