GlenAyr Vineyard is located in south east Tasmania’s Coal River Valley wine region. The vineyard is close to the historic village of Richmond, a 20-minute drive from Hobart (26 kilometres/16 miles).
Glen Ayr’s two-hectare (five-acre) vineyard produces Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot grapes. You can make an appointment to visit the vineyard and taste wines from the GlenAyr range, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and a rare Tasmanian blend of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. The most recent addition to the range is a vintage pinot noir chardonnay.
The GlenAyr vineyard was planted in 1975, the second to be established in the Coal River Valley. The reliability and quality of the fruit grown at GlenAyr led to the first major commercial planting in the Coal River Valley district in 1988, with fourteen hectares of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines planted at the neighbouring Tolpuddle vineyard. Another six hectares has since been added.
