Since its foundation in 1797, Kreglinger Wine Estates has been delicately crafting fine wine, spreading its vines from Antwerp to Southern Australia. While the suave and sophisticated European influences of our heritage remain, our Australian portfolio of wines proudly captures the unique qualities of the land we now call home. From our vineyards in the pristine island state of Northern Tasmania, Kreglinger has dedicated itself to being at the forefront of the Australian wine industry.
The legacy of George and Christian Kreglinger began in Belgium, two brothers who dared to dream and began a family company which still holds trade registration number one in Antwerp to this day. In 1893, the family's group of companies extended to Australia, establishing Kreglinger Australia.
In 2000, Kreglinger Australia diversified into wine production with the acquisition of the majority ownership of Pipers Brook and Norfolk Rise Vineyards.
Nestled in the heart of Tasmanian wine country, Pipers Brook Vineyard in the Tamar region is home to some of Australia’s most sought after cool climate wines. Our Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio and Sparkling wines have become a hallmark of Tasmanian wine that every Australian wine connoisseur must try. Here at Pipers Brook Vineyard, we produce the Pipers Brook Estate and Kreglinger Sparkling ranges of wines, as well as the iconic Ninth Island wines, and new additions to our family include Pipers Tasmania - a modern twist on the traditions of Pipers Brook. We also produce New Certan Pinot Noir, the passionate marriage of old world and new, grown in an urban vineyard in Launceston boasting over 60 clones of Pinot Noir from around the world.

In 2020, due to the global pandemic we had to make some changes to our iconic cellar door. Seated tastings and bottle sales are now available through Nadines at Pipers, the onsite cafe located in our winery building operated by a passionate local, Nadine. We work closely with Nadine and her team to ensure that you can still taste and purchase our wines within the local guidelines, and alongside fresh Tasmanian produce, right where the wines are produced and bottled. In the warmer months, our grounds are perfect for you to bring your picnic rug and a hamper, to enjoy with our wines too.
