Bay of Fires

Tasmania | Northern Tasmania

James' Review

Hardys purchased its first grapes from Tasmania in 1994, with the aim of further developing and refining its sparkling wines, a process that quickly gave birth to House of Arras (see separate entry). The next stage was the inclusion of various parcels of chardonnay from Tasmania in the 1998 Eileen Hardy, then the development in 2001 of the Bay of Fires brand. Bay of Fires has had outstanding success with its table wines: Pinot Noir was obvious, the other wines typically of gold medal standard. Exports to the US, Asia and NZ.

About

The Bay of Fires winery was founded upon the vision and spirit of our dedicated winemaking and viticultural team, who believed Tasmania would one day be the pre-eminent region in Australia to produce cool climate wines. To this end, we search for the individual 'personalities' in every variety and vineyard, to craft wines which are unique, alluring and distinctively Tasmanian but never compromise on consistency or quality.

Specialities

Pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling, sparkling, pinot gris
