Marion’s Vineyard is one of Australia’s most visually spectacular vineyard sites. Ou second generation family business was established 1979, and was the first cellar door opened in Tasmania in 1983.
Our small hectarage is home to favourites Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and also to bigger reds such as Syrah, Tempranillo and Cabernet Franc. We also make pet nat, cider Pinot Gris and Sparkling. We have a delightfully small cellar door which spills out onto a lovely deck overlooking the greatest expanse of the river Tamar / Kanamaluka. Our grapevine covered 'Taverna" (greek word for watering hole), is full of tables and a bar which guests can sit at whilst enjoying a locally sourced platter and wine.
Our second generation business is now certified for Organic and Biodynamic, with minimal sulphites added. We hope that as the first northern commercial sized vineyard to obtain this certification, we will pave the way for others to follow suit and reduce harmful chemicals and increase biodiversity and carbon captured our beautiful state.
Every decision we make considers our footprint, including the lightweight bottles we use for our wines, the glue and paper on the labels and even our composting toilets! We would love our third generation and their children to continue farming this beautiful piece of northern Tasmania into the future for all to enjoy!
