Priory Ridge Wines
Priory Ridge Wines is the only vineyard and cellar door operation in the iconic Bay of Fires-St. Helens area. Our Motto: OUR GRAPES - OUR WINES
Priory Ridge Vineyard was established by Julie and David Llewellyn in 2008, the 50 acre property having been in Julie's family for over 125 years.
A boutique vineyard in every sense, consisting six hectares of north facing slopes, the rich Devonian granite soil (unique in Tasmanian vineyards) transfers a special 'terroir' to the wine. Our premium cool climate wines include Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris. All grapes are hand picked and fermented by the grapes' own yeasts. Following the French tradition the wines are matured for long periods in oak barrels.
Located in the tranquil valley of Priory with the George River on its boundary, the vista of other farming activity, the Blue Tier Mountain to the west complement the seasonal changes and colours of our vineyard.
Step back in history at Priory Ridge Cellar Door: As you savour the depths of flavours of our handcrafted wines you can take in the ambience of the 1900's adapted shearing shed with a pictorial history of yesteryear activity of pioneering families to the district. Follow Routes C843 or C849 to PRIORY RIDGE VINEYARD and CELLAR DOOR - only minutes from the coastal heaven of Bay of Fires and Binalong Bay.
