Kinvarra Estate is a majestic property nestled in the gently rolling hills of the Derwent Valley, 40 minutes from Hobart. With only Mount Field National Park to the west, fresh air sweeps in from the Southern ocean to create a mild maritime climate, ideal for the production of exceptional cool climate wines.
Kinvarra Estate was founded in 1827 by George Frederick Read, an Englishman and son of King George IV. The estate was originally used for grazing and the original homestead remains, overlooking the vineyard.
Recognition of the ideal local "terroir" saw a hand tended 1 HA "home block" planted in 1990, divided between Riesling and Pinot Noir. A further 8.7ha was planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in 2009 dedicated to sparkling wine production.
