Overlooking the breathtaking seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island in South Eastern Tasmania, Bream Creek is one of the first commercial vineyards planted in Tasmania. The original consortium in 1973 planted 5 hectare of vines consisting mainly of Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer.

In August 1990, the vineyard was purchased by Fred Peacock - one of Tasmania's leading viticulturists. Fred's priority was to increase Pinot Noir plantings and introduce Sauvignon Blanc and Schönburger (the first commercial plantings in the Southern Hemisphere of this rare German grape). Reflecting Fred's dedication, passion and drive for perfection, the vineyard is now a 7.5 hectare showcase of premium Tasmanian varieties; of particular note are the Riesling vines which are now over 40 years old (being some of the oldest vines of this variety in Tasmania).

Marion Bay is steeped with history. The vineyard overlooks where Abel Tasman first landed in 1642, raised the Dutch flag and went ashore to also collect water. Later in 1772 French Navigator Marion du Fresne anchored his ships Mascarin and Castries in what is now known as Marion Bay. Today, the Bream Creek district is a rural area with a small thriving coastal community, well known for its artisans: painters, sculptors, fine furniture makers, jewellers and potters. Central to this inspired environment, Bream Creek Vineyard is an integral part of this mosaic as a unique, quality focused premium wine producer.

The Bream Creek cellar door is located at the Dunalley Waterfront Café, Dunalley (just 10 minutes or so from the vineyard). It is open 9am to 5pm six days a week (closed Tuesdays); it is also closed over winter (July / August) so best ring first on 6253 5122. The Bream Creek wines are also available for tasting at Vines and Designs at Copping and Blue Eye Restaurant at Salamanca.
