Yaxley Estate Vineyard was located in Copping in the South East region of Tasmania on the way down the Tasman Peninsula: a sunny, dry and hilly landscape facing the deep blue of the Tasman Sea. Unfortunately, it was virtually completely destroyed in the bushfire of 5th January 2013, and whether it will be replanted is uncertain.

It is planted on a sandy slope facing north, the vineyard receives the first rays of the morning sun as it rises over the ocean. The summer days are the longest in Australia and this, tempered with a cool, dry microclimate means the grapes ripen over a longer period and thus produce a more intense fruit flavour for each variety.

Yaxley Estate was developed through the hard work of Bill and Helen Yaxley with assistance from their sons John and Jim. Bill is also a well-known painter and sculptor and Helen is a talented ceramicist. They also lost their home and ceramics collection in the bushfire.

Pinot Gris is the only variety currently being produced.
