Sugarloaf Ridge

Tasmania | Southern Tasmania

Our Review

Founders Dr Simon Stanley and wife Isobel were both microbiologists, but with thoroughly unlikely specialties: he in low-temperature microbiology, taking him to the Antarctic, and she in a worldwide environmental geosciences company. Daughter Kristen and husband Julian Colvile were partners in the original venture, but took over full ownership of Sugarloaf Ridge in 2007, continuing with an uncompromising approach to sustainable viticulture. Multiple clones of pinot noir, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, viognier and lagrein have been planted, and 1580 native trees, 210 olive trees and 270 cherry trees have also helped transform the property. One of the few Tasmanian producers to export to Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Japan. -JAMES HALLIDAY
