— About —

Shiny Wine is a boutique wine brand based in the Tamar Valley. These handcrafted wines are produced by James ‘Shiny’ Scott. Shiny is a second generation Tasmanian winemaker who started in the wine industry at 18 years of age, Studied Viticulture and Oenology in Adelaide and gained valuable winemaking experience working in Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia, California, Bordeaux and New Zealand. Now he is glad to be back in his home state producing the cool climate wines that he is so passionate about.

James’s father was planting vineyards 45 years ago, something that was frowned upon. In those days the government didn’t give any support for the planting of vines. Their Home vineyard was planted on their property in 1998. 0.8 Hectares, 100% Pinot Noir in Rosevears. James also leases one vineyard of 2 Hectares that includes some superb 40 year old Pinot Noir vines and also buys a portion of Pinot Noir grapes from another grower which is 15 years old.

Shiny is based in Rosevears – Left bank of the Tamar River Valley. Although Tasmania is considered ‘cool climate Tamar is actually warmer/drier than Southern Victorian regions. North East facing, Sandy loam, river silt, good drainage.
