Domaine A tasting with Peter Althaus (owner and winemaker)


Established in 1973 by Peter and Ruth Althaus, the historic Stoney Vineyard is the oldest vineyard in Tasmania’s Coal River Valley. Just half an hour drive from Hobart, Domaine A is set in one of the most pristine natural environments in the world. In a small 11-hectare single vineyard, Althaus grows classic Bordeaux varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Pinot Noir, along with the white grape Sauvignon Blanc.

Domaine A is recognised as one of Australia’s most iconic producers and is a definite must try. This is an excellent opportunity to try a range of exceptional wines (current and back vintages) with the winemaker.

What the critics have to say:

“Domaine A – Australia’s best Cabernet?” — Max Allen, The Future Makers

“Outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity...made without compromise, and reflect the low yields from the immaculately tended vineyards. ” —James Halliday, Wine Companion
