Our Farm

This is the Isles family who farmed Killara Farm from the 1930s. We live here now and grow grapes and make wine but have been lucky enough to have visits from the Isles recently. Thanks to Wendy Isles who has shared her family’s pictures of this place. #coalrivervalley #sorell #farming #tasmania #pinotnoir #isles #farmhistory
