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.

The Pipers River area, just north of Launceston, has always been well known for the high quality of it's wines. Now food producers are growing and making quality produce to rival the standards set by the winemakers. The four on this trail are a very good example of this high quality benchmark...but there are many more nearby. In the south part of the trail there is goat milk, yoghurt & cheese, and a fascinating range of culinary lavender produce. In the north experience the particular wine strengths of Pipers Brook with world class sparkling wines, pinot noir and chardonnay.

Here's a trail with some very different food and beverage producers. Seldom does a relatively small area have such a diversity of produce. The trail starts in Deloraine, up to Railton and further on to Latrobe, then back to Deloraine. Aside from admiring the scenery there is much to admire about the quality of produce from these five producers. Boutique craft beers, melomels and honey wines. Raspberry fruit, preserves, wine and liqueurs. Handmade chocolate. Fresh apple juice and cider, and a tempting range of cheddar style cheeses.
