Paradise for pinotphiles

Tasmania will be a major focus when the Pinot Palooza festivals make their return in Australia later this year. 

Tasmania will be the "featured region" when tastings are held in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. 

"Having come of age, Tassie wines have firmly put the island state on the map and created a world-class wine destination in the process," says event convenor Dan Sims of Revel Global.

"This year, we are incredibly excited to have over 20 of the island's best producers joining us in each city of the tour, including many rarely, if ever, seen on the mainland. 

"And it’s not just about the pinot; you’ll also find incredible cheese, spirits and cider from some of Tasmania’s most talented producers."

So think star producers like Grandvewe and Bruny Island cheese, Hartshorn, Taylor & Smith, Ironhouse Whisky and Pagan Cider.

Wineries involved include Apogee, Barringwood, Bay of Fires, Charles Reuben Estate, Devils Corer, Tamar Ridge,  Ghost Rock, Haddow & Dineen, Marion's Vineyard and Beautiful Isle, Meadowbank, Merriworth (whose wines I have not seen or tasted), Mewstone, Moorilla and Domaine A, Pipers Brook, Pooley, Small Island Wines and Spring Vale.

As part of a promotion with Wine Tasmania, wine lovers in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane will have the chance to wine a starter Tasmanian wine cellar – a total of two dozen bottles, with wines coming from each of the producers involved.

The dates are Melbourne: May 6-7; Brisbane: May 20-21 and Sydney, June 17-18. Tickets are $65 plus booking fee and include a Revel wine glass and tastings of all wines (no tokens).
