Derwent Estate 1820’s Celler Door

Tassie = Fireplace


Derwent Estate Vineyard - Derwent Valley: Family Owned & Operated

Moving our wine journey to Derwent Estate means that we get to try some of the best chardonnay currently in Australia, with their top range named Calcaire - calcareous / limestone.

What do the top wine regions of the world have - exactly this limestone soil structure, so we think that they can then make a pretty good line-up, and you can drink them in a 1820’s original thick walled Tasmanian house + when its cold they have a real woodfire going so that you can relax in a warm & comfortable environment with heritage furniture.

Or on hot days the veranda is perfect to sit & relax with scenic views of the Derwent River. Did you hear any ghost’s?

Terroir WARRIORS


Pooley Family Wines - Coal River Valley (Richmond): Family Owned & Operated

After Derwent Estate, we will take you to one of the best producers of single vineyard wines making predominantly Riesling & Pinot Noir - Tasmania wide at Pooley Family Wines, with your guide having to help plant a portion of this vineyard as well. They are family owned & operated, with 3 generations of the family having been involved in the production of these outstanding wines.

The Belmont House Cellar Door, built from sandstone off the Butchers Hill where it is also located, is from the early 1800’s & is a classic place for a wine tasting with the heritage connotations it evokes. Coupled with a Wicked Cheese Producer board, we have a great synergy happening between the wine & food for you to enjoy!! This Estate has consistently won Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine’s ‘Best Small Cellar Door’ several years running.

Unique Cocktails or Gins!!


Institut Polaire - Hobart: Small Owner Operators

Gin is really where all the craze is at the moment, although whisky is outstanding & we love it, but have you had the way Institut Polaire makes them? or a speciality smoked cocktail at Institut Polaire, one of the best new avant garde bars in Hobart.

You can gin flight, wine flight, cocktail or just relax at your leisure! A great place for an aperitif to begin the rest of the night or stay on & have dinner with a unique & interesting local menu of delicacies like abalone. Let’s get onboard that.
