In the summer of 1979, an indefatigable Cypriot and a Californian dreamer began crafting Marion’s Vineyard from an overgrown block of impenetrable bush and rock. Marion and Mark were pioneers of the cool, beautiful and fecund Tamar River Valley.
“Our family is still here… we love this place. The grapevines love living here too. And the flowers and the bees and the trees and the wallabies and the worms. We work hard every day on our land to bring a little bit of our dream to your glass.”
The estate can be found on the west bank of the Tamar River, 35kms north of Launceston, right in the heart of the Tamar Valley Wine Route in a village called Deviot.
