Ghost Rock Vineyard

Tasmania | Northern Tasmania

James' Review

Cate and Colin Arnold purchased the former Patrick Creek Vineyard (planted exclusively to pinot noir in 1989) in 2001. The vineyards, situated among the patchwork fields of Sassafras to the south, and the white sands of the Port Sorell Peninsula to the north, now total 23ha: pinot noir (14 clones) remains the bedrock of the plantings, with other varieties including chardonnay, pinot gris, riesling and sauvignon blanc. Son Justin has assumed winemaking responsibilities in the new 100-tonne winery, having previously plied his trade in the Yarra Valley (Coldstream Hills), Margaret River (Devil's Lair) and Napa Valley (Etude), and his wife Alicia runs the cooking school and cellar door. Exports to Japan (2018).


Ghost Rock Vineyard and Cellar Door is a high quality, boutique venue for both locals and tourists to enjoy fine multi-award winning wines in a relaxed and scenic environment. Situated just a short distance from Devonport, our estate grown wines can be paired with platters of gourmet local produce, providing our visitors with a truly Tasmanian tasting experience. The cellar door showcases regional artists as well as hosting music concerts for Tasmanian and Interstate acts. Ghost Rock prides itself on being family friendly and is committed to supporting the local community.
