About Tamar Valley Wine Route

The seductive Tamar River meanders for 58km through the fertile Tamar Valley with vineyards, orchards, pastures and forests, from the boutique-chic regional city of Launceston, and then north to the turquoise sea and diamond sands of Bass Strait. The Tamar Valley area - the oldest wine region in Tasmania - is beautifully crowded with more than 20 cellar doors located along the wine route, stretching from Launceston to Rowella, east to Pipers River and south to Relbia. It's a voyage of discovery from the rustic to the sophisticated, each vineyard with its own story - often to be told by the winemakers themselves, whose cool-climate wines attract worldwide attention. Some of the best sparkling wine, riesling, pinot noir and sauvignon blanc in Australia come from this area of stunning natural beauty. While touring this wine-growing area, make sure you sample some of the region's fresh and seasonal produce at nationally recognised local cafés and restaurants.
