Discover Tasmania’s best wines at the Southern Open Vineyards Weekend

Southern Tasmania is home to some of the worlds best cool-climate vineyards. There are three regions which make up the southern wine footprint, all of which are in close proximity to the capital city – if fact, southern Tasmania is one of the only regions in the country where vineyards are so easily accessible from the capital city. 

This summer, the winemakers of southern Tasmania will be opening their doors to guests for three days on the 19th, 20th and 21st of February.  The event is a unique opportunity for visitors to not only enjoy some of Tasmania’s top cellar doors but also gives visitors the chance to meet the makers who do not have a cellar door. The event aims to highlight the key wine regions of southern Tasmania, including the Derwent Valley, Coal River Valley and Huon Valley. 

Visitors will meet the maker, learn more about the winemaking process and get a chance to see vineyards that are not usually open to the public. Many vineyards will be offering live music and food, created especially for the weekend.

Southern Tasmanian Wine Regions

Coal River Valley

The Coal River Valley is found to the East of Hobart City. The region runs from Cambridge to Campania and is surrounded by beautiful countryside along with the historic town of Richmond. Guests can tour the fabulous vineyards while also taking some time to enjoy the cafes, boutiques and galleries within the Richmond Village.



 Derwent Valley

The Derwent Valley is located to the north-west of Hobart. The region follows the Derwent River through to New Norfolk and on to Tasmania’s central highlands. The journey to the Derwent Valley is very scenic and the tree-lined Derwent River is a photographers delight. There are some fantastic waterfalls, bushwalking and mountain biking in the region with Mount Field National Park a must-see when visiting. Take some time in between vineyard hopping to enjoy some of the scenery.




Huon Valley and Channel Region

To the south of Hobart you will find the Huon Valley and Channel regions. The area is rich in heritage, arts and crafts and is a filled with exceptional locally grown produce. The vineyards and orchards are surrounded by rolling green hills, picturesque waterways and mountain peaks.
