James' Review

When Mike Sharman planted the first vines at Relbia in 1986, he was the pioneer of the region, and he did so in the face of a widespread belief that it was too far inland, and frost- prone. He proved the doomsayers wrong, helped by the slope of the vineyard draining cold air away from the vines. In 2012 the property was acquired by local ophthalmologist Ian Murrell and his wife Melissa, a Launceston-based interor designer. The grounds and vineyards have been developed and renovated, the original residence now a cellar door and al fresco area, the picturesque grounds enhanced by award-winning landscaper Chris Calverly.
