Tour Overview

Nocton Estate Vineyard - Coal River Valley: Managed Estate + 5 wines tasted

Tasmanian produces many things that are wine based. Most people know about the Pinot Noir or the Riesling etc, but what about the heavier reds? Like Nocton Estates Merlot, commonly among the best that there is in Tasmania with the Coal River Valley being perfect for the growing of bigger & heavier reds.

Pooley Family Wines - Coal River Valley (Richmond): Family Owned & Operated + 5 wines tasted

Coupled with some of the best local Pinot Noir & Riesling from Pooley Wines who were some of the people to originally plant in the Coal River Valley, we have a top line-up of wine that shows off their single vineyard qualities exceptionally well, they even have the dirt from both on the wall to prove it!! Also, the terroir shines through more when paired with a local Wicked Cheese Producer board inside their early 1800’s sandstone cellar door.

Pooley Wines - Belmont Cellar Door. Riesling & Pinot Noir Superstars + early 1800’s colonial house manor

Wicked Cheese - Coal River Valley (Richmond): Family Owned & Operated + tastings at your leisure

With a little stop at Wicked Cheese factory afterwards, you will have a chance to taste the other cheeses that they make that we don’t get to try at Pooley Wines & they are in themselves a fantastic delicatessen - with a great selection of local produce for you to purchase to take home with chocolates, cured meats, preserves & relishes to name a few.

One of the most highly awarded cheese producers in the valley & also one of the originals to start production in the valley

Institut Polaire - Hobart: Small Owner Operators + 3 gins or 3 Pinot Noirs tasted

Gin is really where all the craze is at the moment, although whisky is outstanding & we love it, but have you had it as textures of gin 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.

Institut Polaire - bar, textures of gin, wine flights, gin experiences & some great fun!! Great local food as well
