SORRY CLOSED FOR WINTER !Pop into our quirky green weatherboard tasting room ( Halliday 5* Winery)to try our award winning wines. Our range of wines are only available here at the cellar door so come and discover us! We stock a great range of local cheeses and Tasmanian Salmon, so why not grab a Picnic and go and explore this stunning Freycinet coastline. As we are a seventh generation sheep farm we also produce beautiful Super Fine Sheep Skins and Merino Woollen Throws weaved here in Tasmania. Great for birth gifts or a truely authentic Tasmanian gift. See you there!

Hi Peter , Thanks for taking the time to review us. I appreciate your point regarding your host as it was one of our new staff members who is still training. Our Pinot Gris is certainly a beautiful wine.

If you looking for Sauvignon Blanca , Pinot noir and some other white wine. This is a place I would recommend. They use different method to made the wine which stand out from the others which you get in standard bottle shop.

Hi Alex, we strive to make the best Pinot Noir here in Tasmania. Our range of wines are exclusive to our cellar door and many are only available to our Club Members. We love meeting our customers and showing them where it comes from.

Don't be put off by the exterior. The place is owned by a mum and dad styled couple who are also sheep farmers. Their wine is superb along with local knowledge and hospitality. It really is a great little stop.
