When Gerald Ellis started planting vines on his sheep farm in 1976, conventional wisdom said you couldn’t grow grapes in the cold wilderness of Tasmania. Too wild, too unpredictable, too ‘at the edge of the world’ – “it can’t be done“, they said. They would have been right, except for the fact that he did.
Through farming intuition, and the odd sprinkling of luck, Meadowbank is now regarded as a Tasmanian pioneer and iconic grower of wine. It is reward for the intuitive defiance in those earliest of days, and a legacy nurtured forward by the principles of stewardship, family and fun.
Gerald’s daughter, Mardi Ellis, now carries the torch as a custodian of Meadowbank for future generations.
With everything from refined traditional method sparkling, to textural cool climate whites, and elegant and seductive reds - Meadowbank has something for everyone.
