Nestled in a cocoon of mixed vegetation and rolling hills, Dalrymple Estate enjoys a unique and seductive aspect shared by only a few boutique vineyards littering Tasmania's Pipers River region.
This celebrated vineyard of just 12.3 hectares rises up an easterly facing slope from 100m to 160m above sea level.
Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987 after a long search for 'the perfect site', this small mature family owned vineyard produces some of Australia's most distinctive cool climate wines.
