The Tamar Ridge vineyards are established in the rolling basalt and dolerite hills of the Upper Tamar and at White Hills in Tasmania. Protected from significant maritime effects and the dominant influences of the Tamar River, steep hillsides of distinctive black, self-mulching clay soils rise up to nearly 200m, providing a variety of aspects and conditions ideal for our cool climate varieties.
The first vines were planted at Tamar Ridge in 1994, and the first vintage was released five years later in 1999. Tamar Ridge was acquired by Brown Brothers in 2010 with the purchase of Kayena Vineyard and the Tamar Ridge, Pirie and Devil's Corner wines.
