Our History

From The Beginning...

 

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, to the isolated coastal plains of Mt Benson in South Australia, 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. 

Pipers Brook Vineyard

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. Browse the full range here. 

In 2020, due to the global pandemic we sadly had to close our doors 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. 

Norfolk Rise Vineyard

Located in the emerging wine region of Mount Benson on South Australia’s Limestone Coast, Norfolk Rise Vineyard is a hidden gem you'll never forget. Our philosophy is to embrace and express the unique characteristics of our surroundings through the varietal definition, elegant structure, and fruit driven complexity of our 100% estate grown wines. The moderate climate and free draining terra rossa soil profile of our vinyard produces exceptional fruit, which our state-of-the-art winery crafts into premium wines that consistently over-deliver on quality. Unfortunately, we don't have a Cellar Door open at this time, but we're happy to chat to anyone passing by, and we recommend you explore the expansive coastline and wonderful wines of Mount Benson if you're in the area. Find our wines here.
