Description

Mewstone wines is a family run business in Southern Tasmania. Our vineyard produces cool climate wines with a special focus on Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Riesling.

Along side our Mewstone range we also produce wines under the hughes & hughes label.

Brothers Matthew and Jonathan Hughes established Mewstone vineyard on the banks of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel in 2011. We create expressive single site wines with a minimum of intervention in the winery. The vineyard is a former cherry orchard and with some new plantings in 2017 has expanded to a final size of 3.6 hectares. The original planting consists mostly of pinot noir with small plantings of chardonnay, syrah and riesling.

Jonny is the winemaker in this family venture. He studied winemaking in New Zealand before working in Langhorne Creek (South Australia), Central Otago (NZ), Mornington Peninsula (Victoria), Barolo (Italy), the Hunter Valley (New South Wales) and Okanagan Valley (Canada). Heading home to Tasmania, Jonny worked in various roles within the local wine industry, before settling in as the Assistant Winemaker at Moorilla in Hobart for seven years.

To keep Jonathan busy we also make wines under the hughes & hughes label. A venture that focuses more on winemaking. Sourcing quality grapes from other local vineyards, our hughes & hughes range allows Jonathan to be more daring with his winemaking endeavours and bring together techniques that he has encountered from his world travels. The most playful of this range is our lo-fi, living wines made without any sulphur adds. Producing in small amounts means he can put a whole lot of love into these unique creations.

The Tasting Room is open 11:00am – 4:30pm, Thursday-Sunday.

We offer two different paid tastings. All booked tastings will be seated and your group will be hosted by one of our friendly cellar door staff.

Locally sourced seasonal platters are also available, as is wine for take-home orders or for delivery. You are welcome to join our Wine Club – members receive a complimentary tasting, member pricing and more.  

Bookings are strongly recommended. Please book for the total number of people in your group, as we are unable to guarantee a seat for guests without a booking.
