Jansz Tasmania

Jansz Tasmania is a sparkling wine house, solely devoted to the art of sparkling winemaking since 1986.

Location is integral to growing outstanding fruit and Tasmania can boast some of the most idyllic conditions in Australia. The similarities of Tasmania's climate to northeast France, along with the rich and free-draining basalt soils, led the famed Champagne house Louis Roederer to partner with Heemskerk Wines and plant Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines in Pipers River in 1986.

Like Roederer, the Hill-Smith Family recognised the region’s potential to create world-class sparkling wines. They purchased the property in 1998 and set about establishing one of the most highly regarded family-owned sparkling wine houses in Australia, dedicated to making premium sparkling wines, using the traditional Méthode Champenoise for all its vintage wines.

Jansz Tasmania was born.
