Team Nocton Star-Of-The-Season

We have an amazing and loyal group of people at Nocton Vineyard who have to cope with anything the season throws at them: drought, snow, tractor breakdowns, recalcitrant sheep, changes of plan and of course the occasional ostrich! It seems only right then to introduce one or two of them along the way. Up first, the inaugural team Nocton star-of-the-season is…(drum roll…)

Renee  ….RENÉE!

As our longest suffering servant of the vines, she spends the week watering, feeding and weeding them plus looks after the babies in the nursery. Of course she can’t stay away completely at the weekend so she is the one to greet you at cellar door on Saturdays and you may have met her on the stand at Taste of Tasmania or Festivale. If you want to talk vines, she’s your girl. But every girl needs her comforts and one morning a couple of months ago at -6C, one of them came to light. A small addition to the normal tractor comforts…..

THE VINEYARD

The 34ha Nocton Vineyard was planted in 1999 on gentle, north-east facing slopes of dolerite-based soils over a free-draining calcerous and Triassic sandstone subsoil.

As in Burgundy, home to the great pinot and chardonnay vineyards of France, limestone runs through the valley and was mined in the early days. It is the combination of these soils and substrata that we believe imparts the great depth of colour and much of the character and texture typically displayed in our wines.

OUR STORY

The word Nocton was first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, and appears to be derived from the Scottish term for ‘farmstead where wethered sheep are kept’.

Nocton Vineyard is located in the heart of the Coal River Valley, 3 kms north of the historic village of Richmond. The property was originally part of the Carrington Plains estate c 1814, owned by a succession of early Governors of the Colony of Van Diemans Land.
