Home Hill is very much a Tasmanian boutique vineyard, winery and restaurant situated on the gentle slopes of the beautiful Huon Valley. Terry and Rosemary Bennett established Home Hill planting their first 0.5Ha in 1994, increasing these planting’s to 3 Ha of Pinot, 1.5Ha of Chardonnay and 0.5 Ha of Sylvaner. As a low altitude area the Huon Valley has a cool temperate climate with moderate summers, very high sunshine hours and mild winters.
The long slow ripening period allows for optimal development of fruit flavours. The Bennett family has spared no expense in developing Home Hill to produce award winning wines, with unique viticultural practices employed to reduce yields, a brand new state of the art winery and most importantly the wine making skills of Gilli Lipscombe.
Southern Tasmania's Home Hill is one of the leaders in redefining the boundaries of world class pinot in Australia. The depth and richness of its spiced cherries, blood plums and finely ground tannins drive a finish that seems to have no end.
