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.

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.

Tetsuya is number one - again!

The restaurant of iconic chef – and Brand Tasmania Ambassador – Tetsuya Wakuda, has once again been named as the best in Australia. And, fittingly it was the backdrop for a major investment dinner recently hosted by Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman, in conjunction with Brand Tasmania. Tetsuya’s eponymous Sydney establishment has just won Restaurant of the Year at the Savour Australia Restaurant and Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence. The prestigious award is the latest in a long list of accolades that Tetsuya has collected since opening in 1989, and he told Restaurant and Catering Magazine it is a reflection of those around him: “I congratulate my staff. The team won this, not me. A good restaurant is a team effort.” Meantime, Tetsuya has long been a champion of Tasmania which he describes as “beyond organic,” and his restaurant hosted a special dinner showcasing the finest from the island state to potential investors. Premier Will Hodgman led the guest list at Tetsuya’s ‘Taste of Tasmania Dinner: From Sky to Land and Sea’, which featured such exquisite combinations as: Cold Green Pea Soup with Bitter Chocolate Sorbet; Confit of Petuna Ocean Trout with Salad of Apple and Witlof; Poached Lobster in Vanilla with Cannellini Beans and Coffee Vinaigrette; and Chocolate Stone with Fortunato No 4. It was a stunning menu, and further proof that Tetsuya’s really does deserve the title of Australia’s best restaurant.

Tolpuddle chardonnay shines

A Tasmanian vineyard has shone at the 2018 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. Tolpuddle Vineyard won four major trophies, with its 2017 chardonnay picking up three of the awards: Best Young White Wine; Best Chardonnay; and Best Single Vineyard. Tolpuddle winemaker, Adam Wadewitz said: “I guess we always knew the 2017 vintage was pretty special in Tasmania. The season was astonishing; late and cool, and it produces wines with that rarely seen ‘balance and intensity’ combination.” Tolpuddle Vineyard is located in the Coal River Valley and was established in 1988. It is planted solely with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Other Tasmanian winners in Melbourne were: The Bay of Fires winery which won the James Halliday Trophy for best pinot noir with its 2017 release; the House of Arras, named Best Sparkling for its chardonnay/pinot noir Grand Vintage 2008; and Eddystone Point, awarded Best Riesling for its 2018 vintage.
