Marions Vineyard


Once an impenetrable block of bush and rock, Marion’s is now one of the Tamar’s oldest established vineyards with magnificent views over the Tamar and winery on site.

Second generation winemakers Cynthea Semmens and David Feldheim are gradually integrating organic and biodynamic principles into the vineyard, olive grove and market gardens. In 2018, Cynthea was awarded the Dr Don Martin Sustainable Viticulture Award, and travelled to New Zealand for a study tour of organic and biodynamic vineyard management practices.

Join them for a tour and stay for a platter, wine tastings and produce samples.
