Nandroya Vineyard and Cellar Door 262 Sandfly Rd Margate Tasmania
Nandroya is an indiginous name for a family living in harmony. The growing of the grapes and the making of wine is based on the principle of harmony with the environment. We acknowledge the Melukerdee, the First Nation band who lived in this area.
Nandroya lies above the river which links Mount Wellington and North West Bay on rich well drained volcanic soils. The vineyard and cellar door are in Margate (262 Sandfly Rd) which is only a short 20 minute drive from Hobart.
The vineyard, of 1.5 Ha, is slightly elevated and faces North-East to capture maximum sun in the growing season. Wine, after all is bottled sunshine! Warm days and cool nights identify Nandroya truly as a "cool-climate' vineyard. With an average of less than 1000 degree days, vintage can be as late as May when there is already snow on Mt Wellington.
Nandroya is limited toPinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. When planted in 1990, Sauvignon Blanc was not as popular as it is today but now ranks as our signature wine.
Nandroya is founded on relationships. "A family living in harmony" These relationships extend to 'Terroir" or the interdependance of the soil,aspect,and the organic principles used to manage the vineyard. Nandroya has recently received accreditation with the Global Network of Green Tourism.
