A very special wine weekend in Tasmania

A beautiful setting? Tick. Luxurious accommodation? Tick. Wines from some of Tasmania's best small producers? Fine food and some adventures? Tick.

The annual Great Eastern Wine Weekend returns for its fifth year from September 6-8, 2019, showcasing some of the best food and wines of Tasmania's east coast.



The event offers an opportunity to explore Tasmania's east coast wine region through a variety of special events, cellar door specials, lazy brunches hopping between vineyards, communal yoga, cheese and sparkling events and a cruise to Wineglass Bay.

“Freycinet Lodge is again thrilled to be an integral part of this year's Great Eastern Wine Weekend, which is an excellent showcase of local produce and wines,” Destinations Chief Operating Officer Andrew Paynter said.

“At the Lodge, we use local producers wherever possible, and it is great to see an event such as this bringing them together to celebrate the best of the east coast.

“Each year the event has grown from strength to strength, including winning the Event of the Year award at the recent East Coast Regional Tourism Awards (known as the Great Eastern Drivers).

“We look forward to hosting locals, Tasmanians and visitors at this outstanding event.”


From free tastings to tours of oyster farms and sunset cruises, I can vouch for the quality of this weekend having done it twice before.

Wineries involved include Gala Estate, Lisdillon, MacLean Bay, Kelvedon, Apsley Gorge, The Bend, OvertimeVineyard, Priory Ridge, Freycinet Vineyard, Craigie Knowe, Devil's Corner and Milton Vineyard.

Accommodation packages at Freycinet Lodge are available, with discounts for auto club members.
