Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo.

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars.

The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Woodlands Brook Vineyard was originally planted on a gentle north facing slope of sandy loams to Merlot and Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The enticing Emily was conjured up before Cabernet Sauvignon became cardinal to Woodlands. Fruit is destemmed by a swinging motion through a vibrating hopper, grapes are passed over a vibrating sorting table. Upon completion of ferments, batches are filled to a high proportion of new French oak barrels for fourteen months maturation. Emily is made in very limited quantities, only 300 cases can be made each year.
