Head off the beaten track to discover Tasmania's lesser-known wineries

There are many small wine producers in Tasmania who do not have a cellar door.

For two days only: Open Vineyards Weekend (March 4-5), several of these wineries will join their better-known siblings in offering tastings, and, in some cases, food and entertainment.

New fewer than 62 wine producers, large and small, old and new, in the south of Tasmania and on the east coast will open their doors over the two days.

Some will merely put up a trestle table and unveil a pop-up; others will pull out all the stops with live music.

Among the producers featuring for the first time are Craigie Knowe at Cranbrook; Devil's Brewery at Margate, Domaine Dawnelle at Goodwood, Cold Blow Vineyard, Inverquharity and Back Paddock Vineyard, all Richmond.

Other star names without regular cellar doors include Kate Hill, Resolution Vineyard, Highland Brae and Pressing Matters, along with more familiar names like Stefano Lubiana, Devil's Corner, Domaine A, Derwent Estate, Home Hill, Pooley, Glaetzer-Dixon, Freycinet Estate, Spring Vale, Bangor Oyster Shed and Milton.

The line-up also includes Pagan Cider at Cygnet and Red Sails Cider at Middleton.
