Star Cellar Door
Like Josef Chromy, Frogmore Creek is designed for whiling away a leisurely hour or two with glass in hand. Just down the road from Hobart Airport at Cambridge, it is home to an architect-designed complex with lovely views of the Coal River Valley, an extensive tasting room and a high-end restaurant that is open daily.
French-born winemaker Alain Rousseau is pushing the boundaries with newer varieties to the state like Dornfelder and petit verdot.
From the menu try Pipe Clay Lagoon oysters served with lemon and red wine mignonette, or local dry-cured salmon gravlax with chilli jam, yuzu gel, marbled kombu, sesame toasted nori and furikake.
Frogmore Creek also has another restaurant, the Lounge, on the Hobart waterfront. Winsor Dobbin
