Pisa Range

11-Sep-2020

Jenny and Warwick Hawker established Pisa Range vineyard in 1995 and operated on the original 4-hectare block for about 20 years. The first hectare of Pinot Noir was planted near some old historical Black Poplar trees and thus the grapes from this block exclusively went into producing the 'Black Poplar Block' Pinot Noir.

About 5 years ago Jenny and Warwick decided they wanted to relocate to the terraces of their estate and build a new house, to do this they decided to sell the original plot of Pinot Noir but retain the Pisa Range Estate business. Unfortunately, Jenny suddenly passed away prior to this move being completed. However, Warwick is now living on the new site and we have transplanted all the original Riesling grapes and intend to plant Pinot Noir in the next few years.

Currently, they're buying in selected parcels of wine from the area that mimic as closely as possible the Pisa Range Estate profile hence 'Soli Vero' was born.

Sigrid has now taken over her mother’s role as General Manager since Jenny's passing and runs the business.
