Tasmania is known for its superb wine experiences, so you’ll have plenty of delicious varieties to sip on as you explore this gorgeous Australian island. Here are some of the best Tasmania wineries that you can visit on a tasting tour around Tasmania.
Best Tasmania Wineries
Josef Chromy Winery
This picturesque winery is set within the idyllic Tamar Valley near Launceston and features a cellar door as well as one of the most celebrated restaurants in the state within a charming 1880’s farmhouse. The owner, Joe Chromy, is legendary in the Tasmanian wine scene. He has produced some of the best wines in the state and the wines produced here have won numerous awards. Enjoy the delicious chardonnay, pinot noir, sauvignon blanc and pinot gris as you admire the elegant lake and vineyards.
This lovely winery near Cranbrook has been family owned and operated since 1875 – for a total of five generations. It is a popular place to stop along the Great Eastern Drive in Tasmania. This area is the driest part of Tasmania and has warm days and cool nights, which makes for slow ripening and excellent flavour in the grapes.
Managed by the Brown Brothers, this winery is located on the East Coast, just south of Bicheno. You can sit on the deck while you sip your wine and admire panoramic views of the majestic Freycinet Peninsula and the Hazards. To pair with your top notch wine and stunning view, you can also enjoy freshly shucked oysters and seafood as well as pizza from the wood fired oven.
Freycinet vineyard, created by Susan and Geoff Bull in 1978, was the first commercial winery on the East Coast. They were early pioneers of this region, as it now boasts more than a dozen vineyards. Daughter Lindy Bull and her partner Claudio Radenti have taken over the vineyard now and are dedicated to the family tradition of top quality handcrafted wines. Make sure to try as many of the delicious wines as you can, including the Radenti Sparkling Chardonnay, the Wineglass Bay Sauvignon Blanc and the Louis Pinot Noir.
Moorilla Estate at MONA
The Museum of Old and New Art is the top tourist attraction in Tasmania and after a day of exploring the odd, quirky and thought provoking art within this unique gallery you will probably be ready for a drink at one of the best Tasmania wineries. Luckily the Moorilla Estate is nearby, producing small quantities of cool climate wines. You can enjoy a glass and some nibbles in the restaurant while enjoying the view of the River Derwent.
These are just a few of the best Tasmania wineries that the island has to offer, so you’ll find the perfect wine to pair with the gorgeous views you’ll savour during your visit.
