Westella Vineyard is Will and Jacquie Adkins' family vineyard located in the cool-climate location of Rowella in the Tamar Valley.

Adkins is well known as the general manager of leading Tasmanian wine brand Tamar Ridge, owned by Brown Brothers.

He and his wife are also "wine-growers dedicated to crafting a full range of wines grown only from pinot noir grapes".

"Our region excels at pinot noir so that is all that we grow," the couple say.  

Using four different pinot clones they will produce a selection of wines including a classic traditional method sparkling blanc de noir and a sparkling vintage rosé, as well as table wines the Westella and the Tippogoree.

"From September 2022, we will host visitors to our small vineyard in our Westella Vineyard cellar," the couple says.

"Visitors will be able to sample and purchase our pinot noir and enjoy a small menu of Tasmanian food to accompany tastings. We invite you to visit and enjoy the scenic trip along kanamaluka (the Tamar) to our peaceful and picturesque garden of vines".
