Mewstone Wines

A boutique Winery and Cellar Door in Tasmania

Wine Tasting at Mewstone

Mewstone Wines, nestled along the picturesque D’Entrecasteaux Channel in Tasmania, is a testament to the passion and dedication of brothers Matthew and Jonathan Hughes. Established in 2011 on the site of a former cherry orchard, Mewstone has evolved into a boutique vineyard with a keen focus on producing expressive, single-site wines with minimal intervention. Spanning 5.2 hectares, the vineyard is predominantly planted with Pinot Noir, alongside smaller plots of Chardonnay and Riesling. Winemaker Jonathan Hughes brings a wealth of international experience to the venture, crafting wines under both the Mewstone and Hughes & Hughes labels, the latter allowing for more experimental winemaking practices and the production of unique, low-intervention wines.

The Hughes brothers' commitment to quality and expression of terroir is evident in every bottle, reflecting the unique characteristics of their Tasmanian vineyard. Through careful stewardship of the land and innovative winemaking, Mewstone Wines has established itself as a distinguished name in Tasmania's wine scene, offering varietals such as Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Rosé. Each wine is a celebration of the region's natural beauty and the brothers' dedication to their craft, inviting wine enthusiasts to explore the depth and complexity of Tasmanian wine.
