Taste wines from some of the best small producers in Tasmania

Calling all Tasmanian wine lovers at a loose end this Sunday afternoon.

How about a trip to the opening event of the Vino Amigos season at the Port Cygnet Cannery complex. 


With wines from Sailor Seeks Horse, Mewstone/Hughes & Hughes and Anim Wines, tacos and live music this sounds like a whole lot of fun. 

Paul and Gilli Lipscombe from Sailor Seeks Horse (above) - whose cellar door and winery is part of the Cannery complex - will combine with a rotation of their Tassie winemaker mates to pour their wines for guests to taste, drink and take away. 

On one side of the Cannery you will find wine and ping pong and on the other side there’ll be tacos, beers, cocktails, live music and beer garden games.

Guests at the first event are Jonny Hughes from Mewstone and Hughes & Hughes, and Max Marriott from Anim Wines. Both are young winemakers from the nearby Channel region. 

Music will be by Yvan and Emily, who combine alternatively tuned guitars, violins and violas with ethereal vocals. 

The opening event will run from noon-5pm on Sunday with an entry fee of $10 to support the musicians at the waterfront venue.


"We’re finally getting our act together and organising some wine events on the winery side of the Cannery," said Paul Lipscombe. 

"Vino Amigos will run once a month over summer. It’s meant to be fun and relaxed; we’ll offer tastings, wines by the glass / bottle, plus takeaway sales."

On December 6, there will be a Christmas Market at the Cannery and wineries involved include Altaness, Chatto, Elsewhere, Stefano Lubiana/Lucille Vineyard and Two Bud Spur. 

The Sailor Seeks Horse cellar door is now also open over the weekends for walk-in tastings.
