Established by the late Denis and Margaret Pooley in 1985, Pooley Wines is Tasmania’s leading riesling producer and the only third generation family-owned wine company in the state, managed today by Denis and Margaret’s son John. The family produces premium wines from their vineyards in the Coal River Valley, which can be sampled by a visit to their award-winning historic cellar door.
From humble beginnings, producing 120 cases of wine in 1991, Pooley Wines today produces 6000 cases from its 16 hectares of vineyards. Those wines are crafted by John’s daughter, winemaker Anna (the Wine Society’s 2010 Australian Young Winemaker of the Year) and the vineyards are tended by his son, viticulturist Matthew, who is a fi rm believer that managing soil health is key to achieving the healthiest possible grapes.
Since then, Pooley Wines has become the state’s first and only certified sustainable vineyard and in 2015 the Margaret Pooley Tribute Riesling was announced Best Tasmanian Riesling at three major wine shows, including the trophy for Best Tasmanian dry white wine for 2016. Other accolades include Best Wine Tasting Experience 2016 by Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine.
