Travelling through Tasmania? Here are my favourite Tasmanian wineries that you must visit.
Moorilla: A must visit for anyone that lands on the tarmac of Tasmania. Located close to the city centre of Hobart, this state of the art winery, brewery, restaurant and modern art gallery should not be missed. You can easily spend an entire blissful day grazing, dreaming and sampling their fine wines, like their Chardonnay. Music festivals are also held at the estate so keep an eye on their calendar.
Frogmore Creek: A newer and smaller producer, but one that has made sound waves across the Mainland cities’ fine dining restaurants and wine bars. Exceptionally focused with an elegant style of wines produced from Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Its cellar door provides an inviting, family vibe that is more than welcoming. Domaine A: One of the island's most internationally recognised winemakers. A producer that has stepped outside the norm and instead, focuses on making Bordeaux style wines. A cool climate expression makes the wines from this winery incredibly unique to most full-bodied Australian reds. Try the Cabernet Sauvignon Blend and all your preconceived notions of generic Aussie wines will be gone.
Freycinet Vineyard: A trip to Wine Glass Bay is never complete without a stop at this winery's cellar door. Considered as the pioneer of the Apple Island, Freyicinet is all about producing high end Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sparkling. The wines are generally more expensive across the board but undoubtedly sing quality beyond the norm. Try the Pinot Noir.
Joseph Chromy: Just a short drive away from the centre of Launceston city. With its picturesque location, this winery has an award-winning restaurant to match. Why not try its range of wine, choose any from classical Burgundian style to some classy sparkling wines.
