This place does not look like much from the outside (see attached picture), certainly not a sophisticated wine tasting place. But what a gem inside! Some of the outstanding positives: very reasonably priced (10 AUD for 6 samples), extensive coverage of the Tasmanian wine producing...More

This was a good tasting and the girl was very knowledgeable but it lacked personality. It was a very sterile environment. I could have been in a doctor's surgery. Where were the quirky wall hangings, some music, interesting pictures or at least a view. Most...More

This is a great idea for those who missed the vineyards along the way in Tassie. Located within walking distance to waterfront in Hobart, and not hard to find. They advertise 300 wines but they only have 16 at one time to taste, which is...More
