Discover the best of southern Tasmania over one weekend

Looking for the perfect weekend to spend some time exploring vineyards and cellar doors in southern Tasmania? 

Save the dates of March 4-6, 2022, for Tasmania’s Southern Open Vineyards Weekend. 

Over 30 vineyards across southern Tasmania will throw open their doors to guests for the three-day period, offering a unique opportunity for wine lovers to meet the people behind some of Tasmania’s most-loved wine labels, some of whom don’t usually operate a tasting room.

The vent will spotlight Tasmania’s key southern winemaking areas: the Derwent Valley, Coal River Valley and Huon Valley/D’Entrecasteux Channel. 

Some of the star labels involved will include Derwent Estate, Sailor Seeks Horse, Domain Simha, Glaetzer-Dixon and Mewstone Wines. 

Hobart-based winemaker and event manager Greer Carland of wine label Quiet Mutiny is organising the 2022 weekend after pulling together a successful 2021 event that took place despite border closures and Covid-19 limitations.

“Growing up on the family vineyard, Laurel Bank, I have seen first hand how this event has been a highlight in the annual wine event calendar for over two and a half  decades now," Carland says. "It represents a unique opportunity to connect with our local talent growing and making wine as well as celebrating and discovering amazing Tasmanian wines."

Along with wine tastings, many venues offer food, music and bespoke events.

Social distancing will be in place at all participating vineyards and all visitors will be required to scan in via a QR code on arrival.

Further details will be available at www.openvineyards.wine in the coming weeks.
