Priory Ridge Vineyard
Priory Ridge Vineyard, in the St. Helens district, was established in 2008 by Julie and David Llewellyn.
The vineyard is situated in the farming hamlet of Priory, just north of St. Helens and borders the George River.
The property has been in Julie’s family (Reids and Cliffords) for over 125 years and was previously worked for cropping and raising sheep.
A boutique vineyard in every sense, consisting of six hectares of north facing slopes, the rich Devonian Granite soil transfers a special ‘terroir’ to the vines. This special location produces aromatic whites and full-bodied reds, packed with character and flavour.
Priory Ridge Wines varieties include Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
Julie and David accredit their success in viticulture to the support and
encouragement of friends in the Tasmanian Wine Industry and to the
commitment of their local and loyal workforce from the St. Helens area.
Priory Ridge Wines MOTTO: “OUR GRAPES – HAND -PICKED – OUR – WINES”.
Julie (nee Reid) was born and raised in St. Helens and had a successful career in teaching, in particular, Food Technology and working with Special Needs students.
David was born and raised in St. Marys. From a successful career in electronic engineering, he went on to be elected to the Tasmanian Parliament in 1983. Amongst his many portfolios he served as Minister for Primary Industries and Deputy Premier of Tasmania.
