Owner description: In the heart of Hobart's colourful dock precinct, you will embark on an exclusively Tasmanian wine experience at the Gasworks Cellar Door. With 16 Tasmanian wines always on tasting, a knowledgeable wine expert to guide you through the ever-changing labels, a stylish interior design, and fascinating information about the island's wines and history- this is no ordinary tasting experience. With its sandstone facade and tall brick chimney, it's clear that the Gasworks complex has an industrial past. The cylindrical gasometer tank that once stored coal-gas is gone, but this is the place where coal was burned to generate the gas that lit the streets of Hobart. The Cellar Door itself is located in the original Gasworks head office, where high ceilings, polished Tasmanian oak floors and a sweeping timber staircase reflect the importance of the enterprise from the late 1850s.

We went on a Sunday and had a lovely time chatting to the bloke in charge. $10 let us try 12 out of 16 of their wines on offer. They didn't have a sparkling as part of their 16, but after I lost count of how many I'd tried, the guy opened up a bottle of delicious sparkling rose and shared it amongst everyone in the shop. Fun, tasty, interesting and great value.

“Best way to sample Tassie wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

A really interesting concept, most of Tasmania's wineries can be found here and for ten bucks you get a really good tasting. The wines are interesting and varied and the staff helpful and knowledgeable. Any wine lover visiting Hobart should drop in
