Discover one of the newest wine labels in Tasmania

Boutique wineries are booming in Tasmania right now - and one to keep an eye on is Bell & Gong - with a cellar door and boutique vineyard at the historic property of Valleyfield, outside Longford.

The vineyard is family owned and operated and guests are welcomed for an intimate wine tasting experience with complimentary tasting plates. There are also facilities for visitors to bring a picnic or have a barbecue in the rose garden or vineyard.

The on-site vineyard produces pinot noir while riesling and sauvignon blanc are currently brought in - with plans to plant them soon.

The wines are limited to small quantities of individually numbered bottles available at the cellar door or online.

Owners Simon and Frances Stewart and their family purchased the storied Valleyfield property in 2005 and the name Bell & Gong is a nod to Simon's Merchant Navy background.

The wines are extremely well made by consultants Winemaking Tasmania, making Bell & Gong well worth a visit.

Bell & Gong, 878 Illawarra Road, Longford, Tasmania, 7301. 0417 423 889. Wine tastings and sales Thursday-Momday 10am-3pm.
