Effective from 1 March 2018 ownership of Domaine A passed from Peter Althaus, its long-term custodian, to Moorilla Estate. There were no changes to existing employees, with Conor van de Reest continuing as winemaker. The inclusion of Domaine A’s stock in the sale will be of particular relevance with the opening of Mona’s 172-room hotel on the Moorilla property in ’22. Mona is Australia’s largest private museum showing ancient, modern and contemporary art, founded by philanthropist and collector David Walsh. Exports to Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong and China.
TASMANIA'S FIRST GROWTH
Domaine A is set in one of the most pristine natural environments in the world. Established in 1973, the historic Stoney Vineyard is the oldest vineyard in Tasmania’s Coal River Valley. Ancient soil and truly cool climate give rise to inspirational terroir founded on 200 million year old Jurassic Dolerite. Domaine A lies on a north facing slope that enjoys a temperate maritime climate and extended sunlight hours over a long, cool season. Each Domaine A wine is a reflection of extraordinary terroir with a proven record of critical acclaim and genuine ageing capacity. Hand made wines by H. Peter Althaus.
