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 renewing 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.
Our cellar door is located on the outskirts of the historic Richmond township in the heart of the Coal River Valley. Nestled between Belmont, the Georgian convict-built, heritage-listed home, and our vines you will find our tasting room in The Coach House.
Join us for in-depth structured tastings, local cheeses and charcuterie boards daily, as well as artisan wood-fired pizzas on weekends.
Pooley Wines also offers luxury accommodation and fine dining across the road at the lovingly restored Prospect House Private Hotel. With just 11 luxuriously appointed rooms, the hotel and restaurant provide an intimate escape perfect for marking a special occasion or weekend getaway with friends and loved ones.
