Providence Vineyard is located near the township of Lilydale, in the Tamar Valley, northern Tasmania.
Providence was founded by French winemaker Jean Miguet in 1956 and is the oldest of Tasmania’s modern vineyards. The two-hectare (five-acre) vineyard produces pinot noir and chardonnay and a small amount of Riesling. The original pinot noir and chardonnay vines planted by Jean Miguet in 1956 still produce fruit used in the current vintages.
You can taste the range of award-winning Providence wines at the cellar door most of the year and by appointment during winter (July and August). The vineyard also sells a range of other fine Tasmanian wines, and your purchased wines can be shipped Australia wide free of charge.
The Tamar Valley is one of Tasmania’s premium wine producing regions. The area is characterised by a cool climate, loamy soils and long ripening periods; ideal conditions for high quality grapes and distinctively flavoured wines.
The Vineyard is a 25-minute drive northeast of Launceston (27 kilometres/17 miles) on the Tamar Valley Wine Route.
