Tasmania calling to wine guns

Are you a sommelier, wine buyer, restaurateur or retail sales gun? 

Wine Tasmania wants you. 

The umbrella body for wine on the island state is once again inviting wine buyers from across the country to experience the island's very fashionable wines this October.


Ten key people will be selected to participate in an immersive two-day visit exploring the south of the island, tasting wines and interacting with wine producers from around the state.


With the increasing popularity of Tasmanian wine seeing demand often exceeding production, the program presents an opportunity for wine buyers to experience and learn about many of Tasmania’s wines, which can  often be difficult to access.


Wine Tasmania CEO Sheralee Davies said that visiting the island was the best way to experience the Tasmanian lifestyle and its outstanding produce.


“Tasmanian wines have been attracting the attention of a growing global audience in recent years," she says. 

"Visiting the island is the best way to understand the depth and diversity of our outstanding wines and the talented people who grow and craft them.


“Many of the island’s wine producers only sell their wines in Tasmania, while others send their wine off-island in small and hard-to-find quantities. 

@We live in one of the best places on earth and this annual visit allows us to share a little of the lifestyle we’re privileged to call our own.”


The visitation program is open to anyone currently employed in senior roles within the wine trade including sommeliers, restaurateurs and retail representatives. 

Applicants must be responsible for wine purchasing decisions within their business and be available to travel to Tasmania on October 16-17. 

The link to apply can be found at and submissions close on August 18. 

The visitation program is presented with support from the Tasmanian Government.
