Winemaker Michael O’Brien relocated with his family to Tasmania in late 2008 with desirable site prerequisites set in stone, the canvas of Domaine Dawnelle was discovered in less than two years. Be it ‘chance’ or ‘the right place at the right time’, a late evening prospect in the Granton Heights revealed a plethora of riches so perfectly suited to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.


Domaine Dawnelle is named in honour of Michael’s late grandmother and rice farm in country New South Wales where he spent much of his childhood.
