Laurel Bank was established by Kerry Carland in 1986 at Granton, just 20 minutes from the Hobart CBD.
Situated on moderate, north-facing slopes overlooking the Derwent river, the vineyard has a cool maritime microclimate and is ideally suited to the varieties planted: Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and a small amount of Bordeaux varieties, mainly Cabernet Sauvignon.
We at Laurel Bank believe that the Tasmanian wine industry is very well placed to produce premium quality wine from classic European varieties with our cool dry summers and long sunny autumns. The future for our industry is extremely promising but site selection parameters must be rigorously applied.
Our own vineyard site meets the criteria for production of high quality fruit, with low yields, intense flavours and definitive varietal characteristics.
