Tasmania’s naturally elegant wines are made from grapes grown in climates similar to those of the famous European wines - with mild summers and long autumn days that ripen the grapes providing elegance and intensity of flavour. While its wine history dates back as far as 1823, it wasn’t until the early 1970s that the industry began to flourish and it now produces elegant cool climate wines such as Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris with smaller plantings of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The regions of Tasmania are seen as some of Australia’s most sought after when it comes to grapes for Sparkling wines.
Tasmania remains Australia’s only state-wine region in its own right and features four ‘Wine Routes’– Tamar Valley Wine Route, Southern Wine Route, East Coast Wine Route and the North West Wine Route.
