climate The Upper Coal River Valley Wine District includes the lands in the Coal River Valley upstream of Richmond and the lands surrounding Campania. The Coal River catchment is located in a relatively dry area of Tasmania with an average annual rainfall increasing from 520 mm at Hobart Airport to 630 mm further inland at Colebrook While east coast low pressure systems tend to produce more rain from October to December, monthly rainfall figures are relatively uniform in the 40 - 60 mm range. The recent development of the South East Irrigation Scheme has enabled farmers to diversify into a range of other more intensive irrigated cropping activities, previously prevented by the low annual rainfall. Nevertheless, limitations in the availability of irrigation water mean that dryland cropping and grazing dominate. The famous Domaine A Stoney Vineyard, was the first in the sub-region, established lon the property of George Park in 1973. In 1988 Ruth and Peter Althaus purchased the property. Their first wines were produced in 1993. The Cooinda Estate and Cooinda Vale (Pooley Wines) vineyards were established in 1985. Richmond Park was established in 1996 and Colmaur in 1999. Other wineries in the are include: Colmaur Tasmania and Kraanwood Vineyard.

The Coal River Valley Wine Region includes three districts : Coal River Lower ; Coal River Upper ; Tea Tree
