Most vineyards charge a tasting fee which is taken of when you make a purchase, cellar doors are dearer than bottle shops, but some wines only available at the cellar... More

The Tamar Valley is one of the most beautiful regions in Australia. For a wine-lover such as meself, the Tamar's prestigious drops and smart eateries complete a very satisfying picture. Not to be missed.
