Spectacular views, stunning produce, and superb cool-climate wines are in abundance on the Apple Isle.

Pipers Brook Vineyard produces an exceptional range of cool-climate wines that embody the terroir of the Tamar Valley region. The Pipers Brook Cellar Door offers tastings of their Pipers Brook, Kreglinger & Ninth Island wines made on the estate from fruit grown on their seven vineyards. The café features a seasonal menu of locally sourced Tasmanian produce, perfect for a light lunch.
For a truly unique experience, book the two-bedroom Pipers Brook Villa and wake to stunning views overlooking the estate's vineyards each morning. Or, if you're travelling by campervan, then be sure to call ahead to secure free onsite RV parking.

Bay of Fires
Surrounded by vines in every direction, the Bay of Fires cellar door is a wine lover's dream. There are three separate labels available to sample, each focused on different winemaking philosophies and styles. But one thing remains consistent, they all reflect the unique Tasmanian terroir of their surroundings. After you've sampled the sublime Bay of Fires Pinot Noir on offer, you can then sample innovative examples of Pinot Gris, Riesling and Pinot Noir from Eddystone Point wines. Then you can finish with a flight of sublime premium Sparkling wines from House of Arras, crafted by Australia's most awarded Sparkling winemaker, Ed Carr.

The home of Devil's Corner incorporates the best that the East Coast of Tasmania has to offer. Nestled on the winding road between Swansea and Bicheno, the Devil's Corner cellar door and Lookout enjoys breathtaking view of the Hazards mountain range overlooking the Moulting Lagoon.
This striking cellar door, designed by renowned Tasmanian architects, Cumulus Studio, features scattered buildings created from dark metal and textured local timbers and perfectly complements the natural and diverse environment. Make sure you take in the breathtaking views of the Freycinet Peninsula from the top of the lookout tower. Then, pop back down to earth and enjoy their award winning wine while you sit back and relax with freshly shucked oysters from Freycinet Marine Farm's on-site pop-up oyster bar, The Fishers. Or enjoy wood fired pizza and coffee from Tombolo, a local Coles Bay café and roaster.

Tamar Ridge Winery is on the western bank of the picturesque Tamar River just north of Launceston. The full range of superb Tamar Ridge wines and Pirie Sparkling can be tasted at the cellar door. Plus, there is usually the odd 'hidden treasure' - wines restricted to cellar door and not generally available.
After your tasting, enjoy a spectacular platter by onsite local chefs Hubert & Dan of locally sourced cheeses, charcuterie and house-cured fish, highlighting the flavourful seasonal variations of the Tamar Valley and greater Tasmania. This modern, elegant and innovative restaurant is not to be missed during your visit to Tasmania.
