Pooley Wines

Tasmania | Tasmania

Our Review

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.

About

Pooley Wines was established in 1985 when the late Jack ‘Denis’ and Margaret Pooley planted vines on the banks of the Coal River in southern Tasmania. Now, in the hands of their third generation, Pooley Wines seek to share exceptional, nurtured wines that express their uniqueness, ambassadorship, and dedication to renew their environment for generations to come. The expression of a sense of place is at the core of our philosophy. Our wines are enhanced primarily by our unique terroir, our commitment to sustainable viticulture, with minimal intervention winemaking. Our wines seek to personify the distinction between our two vineyards located in the Coal River Valley, Butcher’s Hill and Cooinda Vale.

Specialities

Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir.
