NORTHERN TASMANIA

With vineyards from Pipers River to the Tamar Valley and across to the north-west coast you need to allow plenty of time to sample the many outstanding wines. There are a range of styles from classic sparklings from the likes of Jansz and Clover Hill to idiosyncratic offerings from smaller producers like Sinapius and Two Tonne Tasmania, whose de facto cellar door is the Havilah in downtown Launceston. Options range from views and gourmet platters at Moore’s Hill, music, and food trucks at Goaty Hill, classics at Bay of Fires and sparkling experiences at Jansz. WINSOR DOBBIN

One of the names synonymous with Tasmania’s world-class sparkling wines, Clover Hill also offers an exceptional tasting experience. Situated in the Piper’s River region, 50km north-east of Launceston, the modern architecture and delightful views are matched by the range of experiences, which include structured tastings and winemaking masterclasses. Those with cash to splash can book a chocolate, cheese, and sparkling pairing class (A$195) or book a helicopter tour over the vineyards.
