Cape Bernier Vineyard is situated at Bream Creek on Tasmania's east coast overlooking historic Marion Bay. This is an ideal site for genuinely cool climate viticulture as the coastal location and maritime weather patterns ensure a frost-free spring, mild growing conditions throughout summer, and an extended cool autumn ripening period. Our easterly aspect provides extended hours of sunshine while the sea breezes of our coastal location temper the heat of summer. Our Vineyard is family-owned, developed and operated. We have about 4ha under vine, with 18km of vine rows and almost 15,000 vines. This provides a challenging, but ultimately very satisfying set of activities throughout the year. Our climate and location largely determine the selection of varieties - with the emphasis on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. Planting started in late 1998 with a selection of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Gris. In total, we now have 10,500 vines in production. Almost 6,000 vines are Chardonnay, 4,500 are Pinot Noir. The 1,500 "Bordeaux" variety Cabernet Franc are being changed to a new Pinot Noir clone as part of a vineyard redevelopment process to enhance the production of Pinot Noir. Similarly, some of the Chardonnay vines are being converted to Pinot Noir and some to Pinot Gris. We have several clones of each of the two main varieties, providing a wider range of characters and flavours. Read less
