Andrew Pirie's own estate is located near Rosevears in the Tamar Valley, Northern Tasmania. Pirie sources grapes from White Hills (Tamar Ridge), Glenwood (Josepf Chromy) and West Tamar Vineyard (Rosevears) vineyards.

Andrew Pirie is also chief winemaker at Tamar Ridge Estate.

Pirie Tasmania is the latest evolution of one man's belief that Tasmania can be one of the truly great wine regions of the world. As Australia's first PhD in viticulture, founder of Pipers Brook Vineyard (1973-2002) and more recently Pirie Estate and SOUTH labels (est 2004,) and recipient of the Australian Medal for his services to Tasmanian wine and tourism (2001,) Andrew Pirie's contribution to the industry is indisputable, as now is Tasmania's position as a jewel in the crown of Australian wine.
Surely one of the best views of any winery in the world, the winemaking heart of Pirie has always been at Rosevears Estate on the West Tamar. Originally leased, the site was finally purchased in 2006.
Quality is paramount and, although small, the winery can boast computer controlled heating and cooling on all tanks, a range of red fermenters, from traditional small open vats to a state-of-the-art rotating vinimatic, plus a well-equipped lab. With tank sizes down to 500 litres, the ability to give individual attention to small parcels of wine is essential; not only for our wines, but also for the number of small local growers whose wines we make under contract.
Given the cool Tasmanian weather, the fact that everything is inside is of great benefit to wines and winemakers alike. This, along with the restaurant Estelle being right next door, is probably why our visiting winemakers always ask to come back the next year.
