If you’re a wine connoisseur or are simply keen to enjoy a delicious drop or two on your next holiday, you can’t go wrong with a visit to one of the gorgeous Tasmanian wineries that have built a reputation on quality produce and friendly hosts.
One fine example is Goaty Hill Wines in the Tamar Valley – an award-winning producer of magnificent rieslings, chardonnays and pinot noirs.
The winery’s partners are close friends who moved to the island state from Victoria to join the thriving industry and operate in the pristine cool climate.
Your hosts are sure to welcome you enthusiastically and your visit will include plenty of interesting stories about what it takes to create that perfect vintage.
The daughter of co-owners Natasha and Tony is Gracie Neuwohof – a contestant in the 2011 edition of Junior MasterChef, a sure sign that culinary ability well and truly runs in the family.
A journey into the Tamar Valley will provide you with breathtaking views and a peaceful atmosphere that is ideal for relaxing, wine-tasting and forgetting about city life for a while.
Book ahead to guarantee yourself a place on one of Goaty Hill Wines’ great tours – a chance to see the entire estate and marvel at the vineyards where the whole process begins.
