Vineyards

by lesaandbill

Tassie has some of the best wines...attached is information we found online re: the different wineries. There are all over tasmania, but these were the ones located in the north east to eastern section of tasmania:

Pipers Brook Vineyard
Currently the largest and probably the most important wine producer in Tasmania.
Pipers Brook Winery is located at Pipers Brook, on C818 about 50 minutes from Launceston.
Tastings - Reserve Room - Winery Cafe - Wine Accessory Shop
• Open daily 10am - 5pm (Pipers Brook Vineyard wine tastings and sales)
• Lunch daily in The Winery Cafe between 12noon and 3pm
Location Address: 1216 Pipers Brook Road, Pipers Brook

Tamar Ridge Wines
A very broad-ranging and high quality line up of wines under the Tamar Ridge and Devils Corner labels with the Tamar Ridge Riesling especially well regarded. Also produces premium sparkling wine under the TRV and Josef Chromy Selection label.
Location Address: Auburn Road Kayena

Jansz
Jansz is situated right next door to Pipers Brook Vineyard and has quite possibly Tasmania's most impressive Wine Room and Interpretative Centre. It is both architecturally magnificant and beautifully placed amongst vine-laden hills and beside a picturesque lake.

Moorilla Estate***café, etc!!!
The wines have long held a very good reputation with Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir regularly winning recognition.
Location Address: 655 Main Road, Berriedale

Domaine A
The top label is Domaine-A and appears only when warranted by the vintage while the Stoney Vineyard label is the regular label.
Domaine A produces arguably Tasmania's best Cabernet Sauvignon (it is included in the 2005 Langtons Classification IV) and highly sought after Pinot Noir.
Location Address: Tea Tree Road,Campania

Stefano Lubiana
Steve Lubiana is considered an authority on sparkling wine production but also has a deserved reputation for producing high quality Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Riesling and perhaps Tasmania's best Merlot.
Location Address: 60 Rowbottoms Road, Granton

It used to be called the "Apple Isle"

by pedroswift

"Today , it is the" Isle de Vin - Cool Climate""

Exceptional Wines both Sparkling and Still

Tasmanian Wine producing areas can be divided into three regions.

The South- consisting of Derwent Valley, Coal River Valley and Huon.
The East Coast - Freycinet.
The North which has the Tamar Valley, Pipers River and the north west.

Visit at least one of these regions during your exploration of Tasmania. You will find wines the like of which are unobtainable elsewhere. If you are a lover of Pinot Noir , you will not be disappointed.
About half of the grapes grown in Tasmania are Pinot Noir. Over a quarter of the crop is Chardonnay. As you well know, these two varieties are essential in the making of Champagne.
The Champagne Region of France is the most northerly grape growing region. Situated at 49.19º north latitude it experiences mean mid summer temperature of 18.9º C: Annual rainfall of 630mm (45mm during the harvest month of September).
Tasmania is the most southern growing area in Australia. Situated at 41.32º south latitude it experiences mean mid summer temps of 17.7º C ; Annual rainfall of 680mm (55mm in harvest month of April). Compare the two areas – they are not dissimilar?
It will not surprise you, therefore, to find that Tasmania is the home of some surprisingly good sparkling wines. Although Australians cannot call their product “Champagne” seeing the name is jealously guarded by the French, there are many examples of sparkling wine manufactured using the traditional “Methode Champenoise” technique. Sparklings from Tasmania are held in high regard and you could well devise a touristic itinerary just sampling sparklings as you go and drinking a bottle with dinner every night.
Where do I sign????

2 week road trip of Tasmania in Travelogue below

"Can't visit the wineries? - drink the wine!"

If you can not fit in a Tasmanian Road Trip at least try the wines - both sparkling and still.

Even if you do not visit Tasmania try some Tassie wine. Like Pinot Noir red wine? Don't leave Australia without trying......................
Bay of Fires 2007 Pinot Noir AUD 38.00 (2008 is highly regarded as well) you will not be disappointed. Opened a bottle for my birthday in 2009. Absolute Perfection. Can't recall having a better Pinot. Can't imagine being able to afford a French equivalent (that's if they make one????)

There are some very competitive prices available at the big retail wine merchants in Australia. I'll concentrate of Sparkling Wines listing some of the labels to look for..

From the northern region:

Jansz was Tasmania’s first dedicated sparkling wine vineyard. Jansz has become known as the benchmark Australian sparkling wine producer. Try some late disgorged sparkling.
Pipers Brook This internationally acclaimed, pioneering vineyard produces classic, complex Pipers Brook as well as Ninth Island & (top of the line)Kreglinger Sparkling. Do I detect some price rises since the European handbag making company Kreglinger took over??? Certainly an Eu style webpage
Clover Hill & Lalla Gully Clover Hill was established in 1986 as a dedicated sparkling wine estate planted solely to traditional sparkling wine varietals – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.Clover Hill produces a benchmark prestige sparkling wine, handcrafted from premium grapes which thrive in the rich soil and cool climate.
Freycinet Vineyards The top sparkler from this vineyard is Radenti which is a classy drop, hard to beat no matter the price bracket of the competition.
Bay of Fires Winery produces sparkling wine exhibiting a steely leanness, finely balanced by intensity of fruit flavour. Labels include Bay of Fires and Tigress range of still and sparkling wines and Australia’s prestige vintage sparkling wine, Arras. temp.web page

"Southern Region:"

Moorilla Estate This is a must-visit winery on the Derwent north of Hobart. The Museum was outstanding during our visit- the highlight of a visit to Tasmania. Recent building programme promises an even better experience at Moorilla.
Stefano Lubiana Wines Overlooking the tidal estuary of the Derwent River, 20 kilometres north of Hobart, Stefano Lubiana Wines is family-owned and operated, producing small quantities of hand-crafted wines including sparkling. "1995 Prestige" being top of the line.
Meadowbank Estate. Set amidst 10 hectares of vines with sweeping water views and within easy reach of Hobart, Meadowbank offers tasting facilities, restaurant & art gallery. Their sparkling wine is labeled “Mardi”.
Frogmore Creek Frogmore Creek is Tasmania’s first certified organic vineyard. Varieties include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. Made from 100 percent organically grown grapes, the fruit produced "gives the true flavour that nature intended". I recently used two bottles of their 2006 Riesling as the “mystery wine” at a recent Tasmanian wine night & the wine lovers present all gave it high marks.
Note: I have visited most of the establishments listed above. The couple not visited have enjoyed my patronage as a consumer.

parking in hobart city

by pebs

Hi, like to find out the estimate cost of parking within hobart city?

RE: parking in hobart city

by Anne12

I can't remember exactly what they charge in Hobart, but in other cities in Aus it's about $1 ( or a bit less)an hour at parking metres.
Most parking metres have a limited time you can park there, also different times that you must pay, usually between 8.30am to about 5.30pm, read the signs carefully:)
There is also free parking in some areas, then there are the all day car parks.
Hobart isn't a big city, you will be able to find a car park without much trouble.

RE: RE: parking in hobart city

by Travmad

I found free on street parking just outside of downtown and it's only a shot walk into the city.

RE: RE: parking in hobart city

by Tasmania

It depends on where you park. Some places such as the wharves and Salamanca Place are two hour and reasonably expensive. In the central CBD there are 4 multi storey car parks, but if you don't mind walking a few blocks there is free unlimited parking. I use an open air, 4 hour one on Melville street between Argyle and Elizabeth streets, which is handy and always seems to have parking available. I think it is about 2 dollars. Remember that most streets in inner Hobart are one way so that navigation can be tricky.

Travel Tips for Hobart

Salamanca Markets

by Knightfamilytrip

Every Saturday morning starting around 8am, the street along Salamanca Place comes alive with hundreds of stalls. You can buy wonderful pottery, blown glass, hand made jewellery, clothing, beautiful items made from native Tasmanian timbers such as Huon Pine and sassafras, glorious paintings and divine foods ranging from organic vegetables and fruits to exotic meals. Grab a coffee and people watch for hours in one of the little cafes lining the market or have your fortune told or if the tourist thing has worn you out - treat yourself to a massage. there are several masseurs with stalls. Don't forget to spend a few moments listening to the buskers, some of them are amazing.

Constitution Dock and Sullivans Cove

by seamandrew

Sullivans Cove is the body of water that Hobart's harbor is situated on. It small inlet has been a vital gateway to this city for many years and continutes to be vital to the city's tourism and fishing industries, as well as it's transportation network.

The cove helps tourism by being a port of call from some cruise ships, allowing for excellent waterfront dining and shopping, sailing adventures and transportation by sea to attractions such as Port Arthur and the Tasman peninsula. Ferries are also available to transport you over the mouth of the River Derwent and into Kangaroo Bay where the environs of Rosny Park, Montagu Bay and Rosny await the visitor or local.

Pictured here is the Constitution Dock which is were most of the smaller vessels and yachts come to port.

Sandy Bay

by iandsmith

Sandy Bay is a happening suburb. It's always busy and, with a large marina, yacht clubs, university and casino all within a figurative stone's throw of each other, it's no wonder.
Shown in this pick is the Wrest Point Casino (Australia's first) framed by masts from yachts moored just near the shipyard and taken from in front of one of the yacht clubs.
I'm pleased to say that the only time I ventured into the casino I won.
