New look for one of Tasmania's top wine destinations


Tasmania’s south-east has a new-look wine attraction just in time for the summer tourism season with Bangor Vineyard opening a brand new wine tasting room, tour offering and function/event space.

“In a year of challenges for the wine, tourism, and hospitality sectors, we are delighted to open this new facility, following the hard work of the Bangor team over the past few months,” said owners Matt and Vanessa Dunbabin (above). 

"Building on the success of Bangor since we first opened six years ago, this significant investment doubles the size of Bangor Vineyard Shed, offering a dedicated wine tasting bar, private wine tasting room, and additional function space.

“In keeping with the existing building, the extension showcases Tasmanian timbers and stone, and has a stunning outlook over Bangor Vineyard and Blackman Bay.

“Tasmania offers some of the best wine and food tourism experiences in the world and our continued development of Bangor Vineyard Shed reflects our optimism for the future of wine, tourism, and hospitality in our beautiful island state.”

Bangor's vineyard is part of a 6,200 hectare property farmed since the 1830s for supplying beef to the Port Arthur Settlement, and owned by the Dunbabin family since the 1890s. 

The property has over 5,100 hectares of native forests and wetlands, 35 kilometers of coastline and 2,100 hectares of private nature conservation reserve. It is a perfect stopover on any trip to Port Arthur or the Tasman Peninsula.

The vineyard is one of the most southerly in Tasmania, with four hectares planted with pinot noir, pinot gris and chardonnay.  

The official opening was performed this week by Sheralee Davies (CEO Wine Tasmania) and Alex Heroys (CEO Destination Southern Tasmania). 

Bangor Vineyard Shed is at 20 Blackman Bay Rd, Dunalley, and is open seven days a week. https://bangorshed.com.au/
