Located north east of Hobart, the Coal River Valley lies in a rain shadow and is curiously one of Australia’s driest wine regions.The area has a distinct maritime climate with a long growing season.Vineyards are planted on a range of sandstone and alluvial soils and are largely protected from wind. Owing to low rainfall in the area, supplementary irrigation is often required.
