MORE than 35 vineyards in Southern Tasmania will open their doors to the public during the last weekend of October for a new wine festival celebrating the promise of a new vintage and a chance to sample the very best our world-class wine producers have to offer.
From Friday, October 29, to Sunday, October 31, wine producers large and small will offer wine tastings, food and entertainment throughout the Coal River Valley, Huon Valley, D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Derwent Valley.
Wine lovers from Tasmania and visitors from interstate will have an unparalleled opportunity to sample exceptional wines which can be hard to find or available only in limited quantities.
Many of the participating wineries will be offering attendees the first opportunity to sample their fresh aromatic white wines and roses from the outstanding 2021 vintage and will be opening special bottles from their cellars.
Hosted by Wine South Tasmania, Spring in the Vines festival is an inaugural event created by southern Tasmanian wine producers.
Wine South Tasmania President Keira O’Brien said spring was one of the most beautiful times of the year in our vineyards “as new green shoots emerge, and wine producers catch their breath before the busy growing season’’
