Hobart the spot to taste Tasmania's new-release white wines

If you love fresh and vibrant cool-climate white wines then Princes Wharf No. 1 in Hobart should be your destination on the weekend of November 7-8.

The Tasmanian White Wine Weekend, with guest presenters including the fabulous Jeni Port and Natalie Fryar, brings together more than 20 Tasmanian wine producers, offering tastings of more than 70 wines.

Sparkling wines, riesling, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris and grigio, rosé and dessert wines will all be available for both tasting and purchase.

The weekend features several workshops that are designed to appeal to a mix of wine buffs and novices alike.

The event will be held from noon-6pm on both the Saturday and Sunday, with a range of classes on both days. No. I'm not doing anything this weekend, other that sipping and savouring, but I will be presenting at the Red Wine Weekend early next year.

Pre-sale tickets cost $25, or $15 if purchased in conjunction with one or more workshop, while a weekend pass is $40. Tickets at the door cost $30, or $20 if purchased in conjunction with one or more workshop, with a weekend pass $50.

All prices include tastings, premium Plumm tasting glass, notes and entry into the lucky door draw for a dozen Tasmanian wines.
