Bangor is a 6,200 hectare property farmed since the 1830’s for supplying beef to the Port Arthur Settlement, and cared for by the Dunbabin family since the 1890’s. With over 5,100 hectares of native forests and wetlands, 35 kilometers of coastline and 2,100 hectares of private conservation reserve, caring for the environment is a way of life at Bangor.
Bangor’s 4 hectare vineyard overlooks the seaside township of Dunalley. A well drained clay-loam soil over ancient dolerite rock, combined with a gentle northerly aspect, provides perfect growing conditions for premium quality Tasmanian wine grapes. Our hand-tended vines are carefully nurtured, producing award winning wine.
