15919 Tasman Highway
Inspired by the tremendous opportunities of the East Coast of Tasmania, Geoff and Susan Bull cleared the site in 1978, planted the first vines in 1979 and established the first commerical winery on the East Coast. They were early pioneers in a new region which years later revealed exciting quality potential in wines. The region now boasts over a dozen different vineyards.
The Freycinet Vineyard and Winery is family owned with daughter Lindy Bull and her partner Claudio Radenti taking over the family tradition of gently handcrafting the wines.
Radenti Sparkling is created in the winery strictly in line with the methode champanoise traditionelle, supposedly developed by Dom (Pierre) Perignon, a Benedictine Monk in the Champagne district of France in the 17th century. The whole process is carried out in our winery utilising fruit from our cooler Synotts vineyard and state of art equipment from Champagne. Blended from 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, this wine has had more than 8 years of maturing on lees prior to disgorging.
