Pooley Wines is a five-star-rated multi-award-winning Tasmanian family winery located in the heart of Tasmania’s famous wine producing region, the Coal River Valley. Pooley’s is Tasmania’s only third-generation wine business and is a leading producer of premium cool-climate wines – recently awarded numerous trophies and gold medals including best Tasmanian riesling producer at some of Australia’s prestigious international wine shows.
Their historical Georgian-style estate property, nestled on one of their two vineyards in the valley, was built by convicts in the early 1830s and is home to the Pooley family and their cellar door. Located at historic Butchers Hill Vineyard in Richmond, the cellar door currently boasts Gourmet Traveller Magazine’s ‘best small cellar door’ and ‘best wine tasting experience for southern Tasmania’ awards. It epitomises old-world charm infused with tradition and craft.
The family’s longstanding passion and commitment to fine wine along with their enthusiasm and love of winemaking is summed up in their mantra ‘Perfection is our passion’, a mantra shared and practised right across the business. They are proud to be recognised for their environmental approach to winemaking in becoming the first and only fully-accredited environmentally-sustainable vineyard in Tasmania.
