Nestled in the heart of Tasmania, Milton Vineyard has been a cherished family-owned treasure since 1980. The property, initially purchased to support 5,500 Merino sheep for prize-winning wool and various crops, gradually transformed into a sustainable vineyard that values the land and environment. Embracing the deep red soils of their Cranbrook-Syde property, the family planted 2.5 hectares of grapevines, eventually expanding to their current location with picturesque views overlooking the lake and vineyard.
Milton Vineyard's unique micro-climate caters to the ancient grape varieties of Pinot Noir and Syrah, creating exceptional wines with unparalleled taste. Additionally, the vineyard cultivates aromatic wines such as Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay. With 26 hectares of flourishing vines, the family also experiments with the famous Spanish wine variety, Tempranillo, promising exciting new flavours in the future.
The founders of Milton Vineyard focus on producing small quantities of meticulously crafted wines, ensuring that every detail in the vineyard is considered. The remaining 3,500 sheep are cared for by the founders' son and daughter-in-law, maintaining the family's close connection to their agricultural roots. The highly anticipated winery, set for completion in time for the 2023 vintage, marks an exciting new chapter in the vineyard's story.
The recent addition of skilled winemaker Jacqui Anderson to the Milton team is a testament to the brand's dedication to producing the finest wines. With her extensive knowledge and experience, the Milton Vineyard selection is bound to reach even greater heights.
