Head off the beaten track to explore boutique Tasmanian wineries

Fancy a look behind the scenes at Jim Chatto's Isle Vineyard, or a chat with Nick Glaetzer at his urban winery about how Glaetzer-Dixon Family Wines is expanding its operations? 

This weekend, March 3-4, vineyards in the south and east of Tasmania open their doors to the public for wine tastings, food, entertainment and sales. Many of them are not open at other times. 

So pop into Resolution Vineyard to find out how new owners Daniel and Caroline Lamont are progressing, or check out Inverquharity at Richmond, or Every Man and his Dog (formerly Palmara).

Wine and cider producers in the Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valleys, as well as the East Coast, will be showing off their wares.

 
In the Far South, Vineyards Open Weekend venues include: Windrush at Kingston, Willie Smith’s Apple Shed (live music both days) and Kate Hill Wines' new cellar door at Huonville (above); Chatto (Jim Chatto's first open wine weekend) at Glaziers Bay, and cider producer Pagan Cider just outside Cygnet. 

At Gardners Bay you'll find both Two Bud Spur’s new winery and cellar door, and Hartzview Vineyard, with vineyard platters and desserts all day, plus well-known Flamenco guitarist Paul Gerard playing both days from 12-3pm.



Big names involved include Stefano Lubiana Wines and Derwent Estate at Granton, Pooley at Richmond, Riversdale Estate at Cambridge and Freycinet and Craigie Knowe on the East Coast.
