Winery DAWSON & JAMES

Dawson & James is the realisation of a shared dream between long-time friends Peter Dawson & Tim James. Both are former Hardy’s winemakers who now run successful wine consultancies.

Two wines are made under the label; a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir sourced from the Meadowbank vineyard on the upper Derwent River. The site was chosen by the pair for it’s potential to make world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. From their first vintage both wines have met with great critical acclaim.
