About

Delamere Vineyards is one of Tasmania’s longest running family owned and operated wine estates, focused on producing distinguished sparkling (Methode Traditionelle) and still wines from the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varieties.

Nestled amongst the cool maritime slopes of Pipers River, in northeastern Tasmania, the vineyard was first established in1982 placing it amongst the oldest vineyards in the region. With 6.5ha of grapes now established on the property, the age of the vineyard makes it a rare resource in Tasmania, and valuable due to the significant increase in wine quality associated with mature vines. The vineyard is densely planted with a low trellis system, ensuring each vine can focus its’ energy on brining a small amount of fruit to perfect ripeness each year.

The winery is owned and run by husband and wife vigneron’s Shane Holloway and Fran Austin.
