Native Point Wines from Swan Bay Vineyard, Tamar Valley, Tasmania

Native Point Wines are newly launched from the privately owned Swan Bay Vineyard uniquely located in the Tamar Valley wine region of northern Tasmania.

The 5 hectare vineyard was planted in 1999 and, with the area's ideal microclimate and low vigour soil, is now producing a distinctive range of premium quality wines.

Native Point focuses on low yield, hand tended, cool climate vines. Great care is taken to ensure all the grapes are in prime condition at the time of picking, which are then pressed the same day to ensure optimum quality.
