Tamar Valley wine standout sold



Tamar Valley winery Moores Hill has been sold, but will continue to operate.

Owners Julian Allport and Fiona Weller and their business partners confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets in the industry when they announced the change of ownership, saying: "It's been an intense but satisfying 14 years and we're planning a bit of a break."

Young winemaker James Oliver, most recently of Yering Station in the Yarra Valley, and his partner Constance will take up residence at the start of July. 

Allport and Weller told customers: "Be assured that Moores Hill will be in safe hands. Delicious wines, a friendly cellar door and our commitment to sustainability will continue.

"We’re very grateful to the customers, industry colleagues, suppliers, venues and staff who have supported us on our journey over the past 14 years. We’ve learnt so much, made many firm friends and enjoyed rewarding experiences.

"We look forward to assisting James and Constance as they settle in over the next few months. We plan to stay in the Launceston area, spending time with our family while we consider our next adventure."
