Three generations of the Pooley family have been involved in the development of Pooley Wines, although the winery was previously known as Cooinda Vale. Plantings have now reached almost 13ha in a region that is warmer and drier than most people realise. In 2003 the family planted pinot noir and pinot grigio (with more recent plantings of pinot noir and chardonnay) at Belmont Vineyard, a heritage property with an 1830s Georgian home and a (second) cellar door in the old sandstone barn and stables. Exports to the UK, the US and Sweden.
Pooley Wines is a small family-owned wine company producing premium cool climate wines from two vineyards in the Coal River Valley, southern Tasmania. Denis and Margaret Pooley planted the family's first vines in 1985. Today, the business is managed by their son John Pooley, supported by his son, viticulturalist Matt Pooley and daughter, winemaker Anna Pooley.
