Pressing Matters

Tasmania | Southern Tasmania

Our Review

Greg Melick is a busy bloke - senior counsel, wine show judge and 52 years as Major General in the Australian Defence Force, but lucky for us, he managed to establish Pressing Matters in 2006, just outside the beautiful township of Richmond in the Coal River Valley. Pressing Matters' 7ha of vineyards are an equal split between riesling and pinot noir and the acquisition of the Morningside vineyard in ’19 has expanded the range. These days, rockstar Tassie winemaker Samantha Connew is onboard and the wines, already some of the most highly awarded in Tasmania, continue to go from strength to strength. New cellar door to open late '23. -DAVE BROOKES


Rieslings from bone-dry to sweet, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet (old-vine).

Cellar Door


Overlooking the vineyard and with spectacular views down the valley, the cellar door at Pressing Matters provides an intimate and educational tasting experience.
