Delicate fine wines with silky textures, excellent concentration of flavours, synonymous with classic Tamar Valley wines.
Waterton Hall is located on the pristine banks of the Tamar Valley 30 minutes north of Launceston. The gently sloping vineyard facing the Tamar River is ideal for the development and growth of both red and white varietals. The slow release of cool climate flavours brings about a depth of texture and the ability to create complex, expressive, and refined wines.
We currently have 2.5 hectares of Riesling, Shiraz and Viognier with the Riesling and Shiraz being extended in September 2017. In addition four new Pinot Noir clones and two new Chardonnay clones will be planted to extend the vineyard to 10 Hectares.
Healthy Soils for Productive Vines
Loam over clay soils are ideal for cool climate grape production and produce classic Tamar Valley wines. Natural mulched animal fertilizer is used to boost soil nutrition and structure.
Integrated pest and disease management is practised to minimise inputs and maintain healthy vines. Grass sward is managed between the vines to maintain biodiversity and to minimise erosion.

The Vine Year
The vine canopy is carefully managed all year round by Tom and Joy for healthy productive vines yielding high quality fruit. Sunlight penetrating into the fruit zone is the goal. Hand pruned for intelligent vineyard decision making. Hand picked to maintain premium fruit quality.
