Native Point

Established in 1999, the 5 hectare Native Point Vineyard is located on the scenic eastern side of the Tamar Valley.

Sheena and Tim High are dedicated to combining viticulture excellence with traditional winemaking to produce small vintages of true cool climate Tasmanian wines.
Attention to detail in all aspects of vineyard management allows us to selectively harvest parcels of grapes at optimal flavour and ripeness. The resulting wines exhibit varietal intensity, rich texture and natural balanced acidity.

All wines are sold in 750 ml bottles, aged to ensure the wines are released at optimal taste and flavour.

Our fruit driven, elegant wine styles are a natural expression of the unique microclimate and soils of Native Point in the Tamar Valley.

Nichols Poultry Pty Ltd

We know that consumer expectations and industry standards can be two very different things. For this reason we have worked closely with Nichols Agricultural Director and founder, Rob Nichols, to launch a whole new range of chicken for our customers; Nichols Ethical Free Range Chicken.


Nichols Poultry was established in the early 1980s when founder Rob Nichols and his family emigrated from Leicestershire in England to Sassafras in Tasmania. The business has grown to become one of the most trusted and respected meat brands in Tasmania. Consumer research conducted in 2016 demonstrated that consumers trust Nichols to be a source of high quality chicken.

Commitment to environmental responsibility is pivotal to Nichols’ sustainability model, driven by Rob’s support of innovative renewable energy. Nichols Poultry currently generates 50% of its power requirements from its wind turbine and the business has plans to increase this self-sustaining approach with a second turbine in the future.

Nocton Park

Our story is unique, exciting, exotic and thrilling to be a part of.

It is the story of Tasmania’s past, from early settlement and, much more importantly, the story of Tasmania’s future and its connection with China.

Situated outside the beautiful village of Richmond in the Coal River Valley, southern Tasmania, the property dates back to 1813 when, as part of the larger Carrington Park, it was granted by Governor Macquarie to the future Governor Davey. Since the first vines were planted in 1973, the Coal River has become firmly established among Australia’s most prestigious cool climate wine regions and by the 1990s, there was already a growing understanding throughout Asia that Tasmania meant quality: quality of produce, quality of air, quality of water, quality of life.

And so Nocton Vineyard was planted.  Now, with mature vines, a string of accolades and an ever increasing understanding that Tasmania could and should be part of the Asian Century, we are ready to take the next steps on this journey; a journey of discovery; a journey of cooperation; a journey of fun and excitement; a journey on which you are all invited.

Global kudos for sparkling wines

Another ringing endorsement for Tasmania’s world-class sparkling wines. One of France’s most respected champagne authorities has proclaimed our bubbly offerings to be amongst the best anywhere. Fourth generation French champagne maker, Cyril Brun, Chef de Caves for Charles Heidsieck, has likened our sparkling wines to those of the great champagne houses. During a recent visit to Tasmania, he told The Mercury: “Every time I taste the sparkling wine from Tasmania I feel like it is the one that could be potentially the closest to champagne.” About one third of all wine made in Tasmania is sparkling. The local industry is also booming, with latest figures estimating it is now worth $100 million to the local economy each year. Another $15.2 million is also generated by wine-related tourism.

Bellamy’s back in black

Tasmanian based baby food and formula company, Bellamy’s, has put the tough times behind, and is reporting healthy profits. The Launceston based company reported a net after-tax profit of $42.8 million for 2017-18. Revenue also jumped by 37 per cent to $329 million. This represents a major turnaround from the $800,000 loss the company had recorded for the previous financial year, and a previous share price crash. Bellamy’s Chief Executive, Andrew Cohen told The Advocate: “…the Bellamy’s turnaround plan continues to demonstrate results in terms of revenue growth, profitability, cashflow and the balance sheet…Beyond the numbers, the business has transformed over the period in terms of process and disciplines, but, more importantly, in terms of culture and capability.” He adds, growth is focused on selling organic infant nutrition into China and wider Asia.

Sparkling wine festival adds fizz

Tasmania’s celebration of all things sparkling – Effervescence Tasmania – has unveiled this year’s program and there are plenty of reasons to pop the cork in celebration. The Launceston-based festival, which bubbles into life on November 11, has included Hobart in the mix for its fifth festival. Effervescence Tasmania is described as one of the world’s best sparkling wine festivals, and all featured producers are by invitation only, ensuring all wines presented to guests are the best Tasmania has on offer. More than 1,200 enthusiasts took part in master-classes and attended dinners at last year’s event. And, as with every year, the highlight will be the Grand Tasting in the gardens of Launceston’s Josef Chromy winery. Australia’s first sparkling wine was produced in Tasmania from the 1826 harvest. Today, the island state is widely recognised as the country’s home of premium sparkling wine, with that market now accounting for about one third of all local wine production.
