Description

A boutique vineyard and cellar door producing high quality wines that everyone will remember and enjoy. Huon Valley, Tasmania.
Kate Hill came to Tasmania in 2006 to fulfil her ambition of making some of Australia’s best, world class, cool climate wines.

Not only is Tasmania Australia’s most picturesque, best kept secret, but its gentle climate is ideal for the propagation of some of Australia’s most succulent fruit and bountiful vines.  This fruit is an essential ingredient of fine wine. Kate is keen to make the most of Tasmania’s superb, cool climate fruit by producing high quality wines that everyone will remember and enjoy.

Kate is no stranger to the world of wine. For more than ten years she has been making wine in some of the world’s prime wine-making regions including South Australia, France, California and Chile. She was an executive winemaker with Orlando Wyndham for four years at their Riverina winery and has a number of gold medal wines to her credit. Kate’s experience in Tasmania includes working with Stefano Lubiana Wines and contract winemaker Winemaking Tasmania. She established her own wine brand in 2008 as a negociant producer, utilising the services of a contract winery.

In 2011, Kate and her husband Charles acquired an old apple cool store – packing shed on the edge of Huonville, south of Hobart.  They have converted the 100 year old timber shed into a winery, and are now fully independent winemakers with the arrival of a bottling line in early 2014.

The Kate Hill range includes a sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir, Riesling and Pinot Noir. Some exciting small batch single vineyard wines are starting to emerge, which you can taste at their cellar door. They have a three hectare vineyard at their cellar door site, planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. They planted another one hectare of Pinot Noir at the winery site in late 2017.  

Kate and Charles have opened their cellar door at 21 Dowlings Road, Huonville, alongside the Huon Hwy.
