Tasmania's oldest established vineyard


Jean Francois and Cecile Miguet arrived in Australia from France in 1951, sailing from Genoa near the France/Italian border and in 1956 Jean Francois and Cecile Miguet began what was to be known for forty years as La Provence ….


Nestled in the cleavage of Mountains Arthur and Brown that serve as a spectacular backdrop for the north facing slopes of grey and chocolate clay/loam soils of Providence.

Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines were first planted here in 1956 and they remain to this day, making it the birthplace of the modern Tasmanian Wine Industry.  Providence is the oldest vineyard in the state and thus best able to present site terroir as the roots are longer, deeper and older than any other in Tasmania.  Providence hosts the oldest Chardonnay vines in Australia and the original Pinot Noir, Riesling  and Cabernet Sauvignon vines are Tasmania’s first.


We welcome guests by appointment only.
