Established in 1973, the historic Stoney Vineyard is the oldest in Tasmania’‘s Coal River Valley. Just half an hour's drive from the city of Hobart, the 11ha single vineyard domaine is owned and operated by H. Peter and Ruth Althaus.
It is the culmination of a long and exhaustive world-wide search for terroir ideally suited to cool-climate viticulture.
Varieties grown include red grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Pinot Noir and the white grape Sauvignon Blanc.Peter Althaus personally selects the fruit for harvesting. During the cool days of Autumn when the fruit is at the point of optimum ripeness and flavour it is hand-picked and crafted with minimal intervention.
The wines are made without compromise in the spirit of the finest traditions of wine making.
