WINE TOURING IN TASMANIA

Did you know that Tasmania has 160 licensed wine producers? Of these wine producers, the vast majority - more than 100 - only sell their wines within Tasmania. If you like your wines cool climate, elegant, intense and structured, start planning your visit.   The Tasmanian cellar door experience is as diverse as the range of wine styles, from converted heritage stables to ultra-modern cellar door restaurants. Producers are usually on hand and happy to share their passion for their wines, distinctly shaped by Tasmania’s climate and soils.   Not only will you have the chance to 'wine' your way around the island, you'll be amazed at the fresh local food on offer from individual producers and at farmers markets, the natural scenery, the arts, culture, heritage and most of all, the interesting, passionate characters that call Tasmania home.   Tasmania’s boutique yet burgeoning wine industry boasts seven distinct wine growing areas that are divided into four wine experiences - the north, the south, the east coast and the north west. All are within easy reach of major centres or are located en route to some of Tasmania’s iconic attractions.
