Location: 42° South
Milton Vineyard was first farmed in 1826 initially for fine Tasmanian wool but is now producing fine cool climate wines. We are located at 42 Degrees South on the dry sunny Freycinet Coast of Tasmania. The grapes are grown on free draining red loam liberally sprinkled with dolerite rocks.
Tasmania lends itself to boutique vineyards. Our vineyard has a unique micro-climate that suits the ancient grape Pinot Noir. Also in our 13 hectare vineyard are plantings of the aromatics Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. Our focus is on producing small quantities of handmade wine. Close attention is paid to every detail in the vineyard and the wines represent this exacting work.
The warm summers and modest cropping levels typically found on the Freycinet Coast of Tasmania provided the Dunbabin family with an excellent Pinot Noir, superb Riesling, lively Rosé, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, a complex and distinguished Sparkling Pinot Noir Chardonnay, and an award winning Iced Riesling. All grown at our Milton Vineyard on Tasmania’s East Coast. The vineyard is meticulously maintained and cared for with attention to detail being paramount. The fruit is hand-picked from mid-April and made into wine by award-winning contract winemakers Julian Alcorso, Greer Carland, and Glenn James at Winemaking Tasmania.
