Craigow Vineyard is a picturesque 11 hectare vineyard at Cambridge in the Coal River Valley.The vineyard was established in 1989 and has already produced a number of Australia's top award winning wines. Current varieties are pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling, and gewurztraminer.The vineyard is part of the historic property of Craigow. An original workmans cottage has been converted into a cellar door outlet for wine tastings and sales; and is open at weekends from September to April as well as at other times by appointment.
Hugh delivered a wonderful cellar door tasting experience. It was extremely friendly, relaxed and personal. The sparkling merlot is on my wish list, but I happily took away a lovely Sav Blanc. Our group of four rated it one of the best cellar door experiences we've had. Thanks Hugh for your time and effort.

You must book to go to this fabulous cellar door, so do it now! Matt was relaxed, friendly and knew his wines intimately. The Pinot Noir was the highlight, no the Riesling was, no the Pinot ... oh, just get both! A must visit winery in the Coal Valley.

Loretta and Andy are so welcoming and friendly. Our overnight accommodation was tastefully presented, great queen size bed, lounge room and kitchenette, seperate loo and great bathroom, (including a bath) and shower. Andy made the BBQ available for me to cook our dinner. The breakfast was scrumptious and most generous including freshly baked bread, juice, home made jams plus fresh fruit and cereals. A fabulous cheese platter was presented to accompany pre dinner drinks. A wander around 2.5 hectares of vines with the grapes forming with some varieties not available anywhere else in the World. Minimal but efficient grape presses and some 20 barrels filled with several varieties of wine. Loretta gave us a personal tour with bottles under her arm for wine tasting along the way. All provided with passion and love accompanied by their Black Labrador, Archie. A must visit winery in the Coal River Vally and a wonderful place to stay. Richmond is a close 2 kilometre walk or drive. Nearly Tuscany.

Our winery, founded in 1962, focuses on a small, very high-quality output. From estate-grown fruit, our ultra-premium wines are made using small-batch winemaking techniques in our gravity-assisted winery. Taste it on site, at our festivals, or at select venues around the country.
Moorilla Estate is located directly next to MONA and is absolutely worth a visit. There is a winery tour available and Cellar Door for wine tastings. A casual restaurant and the more formal restaurant The Source are also part of the winery but bookings are usually necessary. Allow time to pop in when visiting MONA or make it an extra visit to enjoy all that Moorilla has to offer.

Puddleduck Vineyard is a family run vineyard in Southern Tasmania. the family welcomes you to taste our beautiful cool climate wines that have been both grown and made onsite at our friendly cellar door, which is open from 10 - 5 daily. We only sell our wines here at Puddleduck so be sure to call in and enjoy a taste and perhaps a snack from our grazing menu,(cheese platters, dips, vineyard platter) or you can "Reverse BYO" (bring your own food to enjoy in our outdoor areas) while enjoying one of our beverages or a wine tasting. We have a wide range of duck items in our "Everything Ducky Duck Shop" where if it looks, walks or sounds like a duck it is most likely for sale! Families are welcome and children kept busy in our playground or feeding the multitude of ducks and guinea fowl while mum and dad enjoy a wine tasting or hot beverage.
We were in Tassie recently and boy hasn't this little 'ole state come a long way!...Called in to Puddleduck on recommendation and certainly well worth it. ALL the staff couldn't have been more friendly. Great wines, great tasting experience and we certainly bought a few. Try the Fume Blanc, I haven't had a white as good as this in a very long time and the last one was a Tassie Riesling. Ver Jus with today water is very good too and something different. Puddleduck has a great little gift shop, not too expensive and a really good brunch menu, plentiful too. Location is really pleasant with a great outlook. Whats more it offers BYO Food, yep you can bring your own picnic, even use their BBQ's and sit under cover if you like by the dam while the kids feed the ducks. All they ask is that you leave your drinks in the car....great idea and we will be back for sure...

Pooley Wines is Tasmania's only 3rd generation family wine company. The Pooley family produce award-winning Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Sparkling, and Cabernet Merlot blends from their two vineyards in the Coal Valley, southern Tasmania. The Pooley Wines cellar door is located at the heritage-listed Belmont property (circa 1830s) in Richmond. Open 7 days, 10am-5pm (closed Easter Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day).
Dropped in for a wine tasting, attended to by James who was friendly, informative, with a good sense of humour! We purchased two bottles to take home...Stunning place to sit outside and enjoy the view

Only 20 minutes north of Hobart, this is a delightful small winery. The lovely and knowledgeable Josh took us through the tasting and explained the details of each of their wines. We sat outside the old cottage and looked across the marshes while having the tasting. We didn't have any food here, though it is available. We ended up buying a few bottles of their award-winning wines. Highly recommended!
