Good Winery Choices

great wineries and small towns to visit. Went in July so some of the wineries not opened. Drove to Beauty Point to Sea Horse Museum-- this is very pricey for the experience.

Did a day trip out to the East Tamar. Lots of excellent wineries. Main wines are Pinot Noir and a series of white wines - all very good. Some very good restaurants at the wineries. Such a short distance from Launceston. Holm Oak is very good. Also Delamere, Josef Chromy, Pipers Brook, Jansz are worthwhile to visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Tamar region around Launceston recently. Very scenic rural driving route visiting vineyards on the food and wine trails.

There is so much to see and do in the Tamar Valley. There are numerous wineries that are all very good, most have tasting rooms and cellar door sales are a great way to get some exclusive wines. There are small towns all along the valley and of course Beaconsfield has just had a revamp of its mining museum. Rosevears... More

It would take weeks to explore this part of the world. Get off the new highway and use the old highway and meander along the river beside old houses.

So much to see you could spend days lost in the valley very good signage along the wine trail with all towns branching off highway. The roads were good and our pick was bay of fires but Windermere was so quaint. A must is rosevear for lunch
