Grey Sands Vineyard, a Small Family-Owned Winery in Tamar Valley of Tasmania

Grey Sands Vineyard is a small, family-owned, winery located on the western edge of the Tamar Valley in northern Tasmania. The name Grey Sands reflects its logo, soil type, brand, and their philosophy. Bob and Rita started planting in their garden and vineyards as early as 1988. All the vines in the vineyards and the shrubs, trees, and plants in their garden are well taken care of. Both winemakers at Grey Sands Vineyard have great passion for making high-quality wines.

Grey Sands Vineyard takes advantage of the soils in their vineyards planting several varieties for a range of flavors and aromas.

Vineyards with Good Yields and Very High-Quality

The owners chose their particular vineyard site because of the perfect soil, slope, and microclimate needed for vine cultivation. In their early years, Bob was thinking of a name for their vineyards, and was inspired by the grey sand as the main type of soil on the property and chose the name, Grey Sands. To take advantage of the soils, the vineyards have a high density of vines at 8800 vines per hectare. This results in a low yield of grapes, but the grapes are of very high-quality. Pruning of the vines is done by hand, and the workers handpick the best grapes and take them to the winery for further processing. They do not use any irrigation, and all their wines come from grapes grown in their own vineyards.

Eighteen Varieties Grown in Tasmanian Vineyards

The main grapes that are grown at Grey Sands include Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Chardonnay, Viognier, Malbec, Shiraz, Aglianico, Malvasia Bianca, and Touriga Francesca. We invite you to explore the unique island of Tasmania and the eclectic range of wines on offer in this southern hemipshere region.
