The Mapleton Vineyard Story
Mapleton Vineyard, situated near the hamlet of Tea Tree in the Coal River Valley Wine Region, is owned by the Laing family, Paul and his parents Denis and Kathryn.
The vines are grown on what was originally three adjoining properties, Mapleton, Woodlands and Lynwood. The first property, Mapleton, was purchased by Paul in 2004. Paul and Denis had often discussed the idea of planting a vineyard on Mapleton, given its ideal aspects of gently rolling northern facing banks and rich dolomitic soils, but it wasn’t until 2014 that the thoughts became a reality.
