Rosemary and Terry Bennett, the proprietors of Home Hill, look down on the vineyard from their home, pinch themselves, and wonder how their relaxing hobby farm of six rows of vines has turned into an award-winning vineyard that produces some of Australia’s top quality Pinot Noir.
Apples were once produced on the site, along with memories of the years gone by when their three young children were placed in bulk bins to entertain themselves while they harvested their crops of apples. Fast forward 27 years, and Home Hill is one of the most popular and well-loved destinations in the Huon Valley.
A family owned and run vineyard, Terry and Rosemary's youngest son Sean is the Vineyard Manager and assists Terry with the careful planning and assiduous cropping levels of the 6 hectare vineyard. Daughter Kelly manages the Wine Club, among a long list of duties and demands. Rosemary's sister Gail is the Office & Function Manager and her niece Prue is the PR & Marketing Manager.
The family members make a great team and love to share the beautiful property with visitors from all around the world. They consider Home Hill to be the perfect place to celebrate the good things in life including fine wine, food and friendships.
