Tasmania’s reputation as a premium cool-climate winemaking region continues to grow, punching well above its weight in Australia and on the world stage – especially for its Sparkling wine.
Take a tour of our picks for Tasmania’s best wineries and cellar doors.
1. NOCTON VINEYARD
Situated in the rolling hills of the upper Coal River Valley, Nocton Vineyard was planted in 1999, making it among the valley’s oldest.
Nocton produces a large array of cool-climate wines that convey the terroir marvellously, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sparkling. Better still, their cellar door is just 15 minutes from Hobart Airport.

2. POOLEY WINES
With two unique sites in the Coal River Valley of southern Tasmania, Cooinda and Butcher’s Hill, Pooley Wines were Tasmania’s first and only fully accredited environmentally certified sustainable vineyard.
No visit to Pooley would be complete without taking a tasting flight at the historic Belmont House, an 1830 sandstone stables and coach house and home to their cellar door.
