Winery / Vineyard · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Pooley Wines is a small, family-owned wine company producing premium Tasmanian wines from two vineyards in the Coal River Valley, southern Tasmania. The late Denis and Margaret Pooley planted the family's first vines in 1985. Today, the business is managed by their son, John Pooley, supported by his son, viticulturalist Matthew Pooley and daughter, winemaker Anna Pooley.

Each year, we carefully hand pick our grapes and take them to our small winery to be crushed on the same day. Small batch winemaking allows us to treat each parcel of fruit differently, allowing for true expression of terroir.

  • It was ok. People were nice and very knowledgeable, however you can get that at any vineyard. They charge for their tastings, there restaurant was only serving for private tours, a bit arrogant on the prices. Go to another place and get free tastings. We like Milton wines or devils corners great view and nice food. Pooley seems cheap. We bought two bottles because it was the first winery we went to. Considering we bought 2 bottles we still were charged for the tasting. Too cheap! Skip this place!
  • Beautiful location, unfortunately wines are overpriced for what they are. Understand paying for a tasting but still need to pay although buying a bottle? This is the one reason we refused to make a purchase. .. Save $$$ and time, find the same bottle in Richmond for less!
