Bream Creek

Tasmania | Southern Tasmania

James' Review

Until 1990 the Bream Creek fruit was sold to Moorilla Estate, but since then the winery has been independently owned and managed by Fred Peacock, legendary for the care he bestows on the vines under his direction. Fred’s skills have seen an increase in production and outstanding wine quality across the range, headed by the Pinot Noir. The list of trophies and gold, silver and bronze medals won is extensive. Fred’s expertise as a consultant is in constant demand. Exports to China.

About

Bream Creek Vineyard is one of the first commercial vineyards planted in Tasmania. Originally planted in 1974, the vineyard was purchased in 1990 by Fred Peacock, who increased pinot noir and chardonnay plantings and introduced sauvignon blanc as well as the first commercial block of Schönburger in the Southern Hemisphere. A pioneer of the modern Tasmanian wine industry Bream Creek Vineyard produces premium cool climate Tasmanian wines that are renowned as both complex and elegant. Since 1990, Bream Creek wines have garnered 32 trophies and over 780 wine show medals and have an enviable reputation for consistency and reliability.

Specialities

Pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling, sparkling, Schönburger.

Cellar Door

Information

Looking to head out to Bream Creek? Unfortunately we don’t (yet!) have a cellar door at the vineyard….BUT planning is well underway and we hope to open by February 2020.

If you are in and around Hobart, we suggest you drop into Blue Eye Restaurant in Salamanca Square (phone 6223 5297, open Monday to Saturday). Apart from cooking fantastic seafood they also have a great range of our wines available for purchase by the half glass (and you if you buy a couple of half glasses you may be able to twist their arm for a tasting of a few of our other wines!).

Please note that tastings are only provided outside of main services hours (between 12 noon and 3pm and also 6pm to 10pm) and we strongly suggest booking your visit ahead of time, to take sure there is no competing functions or similar.
