When travelling down to Tasmania visit to the wine regions is a must.
From the Tamar Valley to Pipers River in the north, through to Launceston and Relbia to the south, more than 32 vineyards are within driving distance of each other. Join your guide on a full-day Tamar Valley wine tour. Or jump on a multi-day tour and test your tastebuds and taste some of the best cold-climate wines Tasmania has to offer. On our wine tours in the north, we visit Josef Chromy, Tamar Ridge, Holm Oaks, Goaty Hill and Janzs, known for its sparkling wine creations. Be invited to the opportunity to taste some of the best Tasmanian wines on offer. Cellar door tastings of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay wines highlight these tours.
The central wine region in Southern Tasmania is the Coal River Valley, only a 25-minute drive outside of Hobart.
More than 20 Tasmanian vineyards are located within the Valley. On a full-day wine tour to the Coal River Valley, we invite you to meet the makers. Wineries we visit are Frogmore Creek, Pooley wines, Every Man and his Dog and many more. Puddleduck vineyard with its delicious gourmet cheese platter is one of the highlights down south.
The Derwent Valley is another region we cover on our Tasmanian wine tours.
We include tastings at the cellar door of Stefano Lubiana and on the Derwent Estate vineyards, where we meet the winemakers.
On our tours where Tasmania’s east coast is part of the itinerary,
some wine-growing areas are close to the Wineglass Bay region. Wineries we visit on these tours are Milton, Freycinet Wines and Craigie Knowe, which is well-known for its Pinot Noir creations.
Tasmania is well-known for its cool-climate wines, which mainly are:
- Pinot Noir
- Sauvignon Blanc
- Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasmania is not only known for its wine but also as a foodie haven.
Combine a visit to MONA, the museum for old and modern art in Berriedale, with a visit to the Moorilla Estate, the oldest in Tasmania. Learn everything about the local wine production and enjoy a gourmet lunch at either the Source or Frogmore Creek.
And what would a visit to Tasmania be without having a deep dive into the delicatessens the island has to offer.
Foodies can learn how to prepare amazing plates at cooking schools, pick fresh produce straight from the source and sample excellent dishes and produce at food festivals and master classes. Full day tours are available from Hobart and Launceston.
Tasmania is a great place to learn about and try fresh produce. You can find it at farmers markets and in local eateries, from cheap and cheerful pubs to high-end bars and restaurants. You can even stop and buy from roadside stalls – in Tasmania you’ll still find honesty boxes all around the state.
We offer full day wine-tours into the Coal River and the Tamar Valley either from Hobart or Launceston. Why not jump on a Bruny Island tasting experience? Take the opportunity to taste freshly made cheese, beer, and bread right on the farm. Or grab some oysters on the go combined with a wine-tasting. Or book our half-day Taste of Hobart foodie tour where we walk the streets of Tasmania’s capital in search of the best tasting experiences on offer.
All our tours include all tasting fees, lunch and professional guide commentary, and no booking fees required.
