Whether you're a cabernet connoisseur or just starting to develop your palate, the upcoming Tasmanian Red Wine Weekend in Hobart is a great opportunity to sample the best the island state has to offer.
On May 26 and 27, Princes Wharf No. 1 plays host to two days of red wine celebrations, featuring winemakers and vignerons from right across Tasmania.
The island state shares a similar climate to that of many European wine-growing regions – and its mild summers and crisp autumn days offer perfect growing conditions for cool-climate wines.
Tasmania is particularly famous for its critically-acclaimed Pinot Noirs, and it boasts a national – and even international – reputation as one of Australia's leading wine regions.
From 11am until 5pm, you'll be able to meet with a selection of key players from this fascinating industry, and sample the best red wines the region has to offer. More than 70 different wines will be on offer at this annual event, which is also a great opportunity to connect with fellow wine lovers from Tasmania and beyond.
General admission tickets cost $25, which includes tastings of all the wines at the event, as well as a souvenir Plumm wine glass featuring the WineSouth logo valued at $25.
