leaning church vineyard

For a fresh, funky and fun approach to wine, whisky and cheese tasting, the multi-award winning Leaning Church Vineyard guarantees a truly unique experience.

Leaning Church is located in a spectacular natural amphitheatre at the foothills of Mount Arthur near Lilydale, 20 minutes from Launceston, in the internationally-acclaimed Pipers River wine region.

Established 24 years ago, the vineyard gained global recognition under the Lalla Gully and Clover Hill labels with premium Sparkling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as a Sauvignon Blanc that has been declared one of the best in Australia.

Owners Sarah and Mark Hirst have developed a premium tourism, wine and food business at Leaning Church, including a wine, whisky and cheese tastings centre, a rustic cellardoor capable of seating up to 55, a permanent marquee on a fully-paved surface that can seat up to 140 for weddings and corporate functions, an historic “leaning” church perfect for weddings and dinner parties, and a new lakeside marquee site to seat up to 360.

With a focus on degustations and grazing feasts, our preferred caterers impress pre-booked groups with a focus on local produce, perfect presentation and service with a smile!

Visitors to Leaning Church can wander around the vineyard, relax on the boathouse deck, tour the “leaning” church, enjoy the landscaped herb and flower gardens, indulge in a glass of wine with a cheese plate, peruse local art, sample single malt whiskies and laugh at the quirky wine labels!

It’s all about celebrating the best of Tasmania in a fun and interactive manner…
