Gill and Todd Goebel have been growing grapes and making wine in the Coal River Valley, Tasmania, since 1999. Brinktop is their second venture, started when they purchased an old farm called Killara located between the village of Richmond and Sorell.
The property is ideal for viticulture. It has a long ridge affording gentle, east-north-east facing slopes and excellent dolerite soils that had been used for grazing pig, dairy cows and sheep for the previous 100 years. Being in the Coal River Valley it is a warmer site but the slopes are cooled each afternoon during the growing season by the sea breezes coming straight off nearby Frederick Henry Bay.
Eight hectares are now planted out mainly to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay leaving a hectare each for Tempranillo and Syrah. Brinktop wine is made by Todd at the onsite winery.

Depending on the time of year we may be racking the wine, plunging ferments, pressing the juice out of the ferments, pumping to barrel. Barrel samples may be available to give you a sneak preview of what is coming next.
The newly renovated Winemakers’ Cottage at Brinktop can be booked via Airbnb. We think it’s an ideal place for a romantic getaway but there are two bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen/ living area and laundry so room for more. All guests receive a complimentary bottle of Brinktop wine and winery tour.
