A peek inside Tasmania's latest gourmet hot spot

A restaurant, bar, winery and cellar door, local beers and ciders, and one of the world's highest-tech pizza ovens.

Head deep into the Huon Valley, Tasmania's most southern municipality, to discover Port Cygnet Cannery built in 1937 - and re-opening early next month, paperwork permitting.

Situated 45 minutes drive south of Hobart in the historic port town of Cygnet, Tasmania, Port Cygnet Cannery is the home of Cannery Kitchen and Bar and Sailor Seeks Horse winery and cellar door.

The building was formerly an apple canning factory and is now evolving into a hub of food, beverage and agricultural businesses.

Overlooking Port Cygnet, there will also be a courtyard, table tennis and table football and and an events space that will be ready by mid 2020.

This space will host weddings, parties and functions as well as live music, movie nights and special events. 

Cannery Kitchen and Bar comprises a restaurant, cafe and beer garden.

At the heart of the open kitchen is the wood-fired oven creatives Asher Gilding and Franca Zingler have named Dante the Inferno. He has travelled from Naples, Italy.

The wine list will be curated by winemakers, and co-tenants, Paul and Gilli Lipscombe from Sailor Seeks Horse.

Here are several photos from a soft opening event this weekend.
