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.

“A perfect spot to sample a wide range of wines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

For a small fee you can sample a wide range of Tasmanian wines at this venue that is very close to the Hobart water front. The selection is impressive and the information excellent. As well, the atmosphere is laid back - it is a very relaxing way to experience the local wines.

This is an experience! The wine selection is great but the service and knowledge from James is outstanding. It is a must do as a local or visitor to Tassie.

“Too much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

What a lovely spot to taste wine produced in Tasmania. James is both a knowledgable and delightful guide as he "tastes" you through his beautiful state. You can choose to taste either 3, 6, or 12 wines for a tasting fee of $10.00. The smaller number results in a larger pour. We opted for six and received and extra "must try". My daughter and I spent a splendid couple of hours and ended up buying about nine bottles- they ship!

“An informative afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

A lovely place. A fantastic selection of Tasmanian wines. Perhaps they are all here? A informative learning experience and tasting given by the 'au courant' wine expert James Horden. A great way to spend an afternoon. Surprises included the Gurvitztraminer, It matched the finest Alsace variety. Thank you

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

A wonderful place to sample a broad range of Tasmanian wines. The small building is split into wine regions, and tastings, to be purchased, are available from twelve wineries, at any one time. During my visit, which was conveniently located across the road from my accommodation, I discussed wines with the very knowledgeable James. He provided a potted history of many of the wineries and was more than familiar with Australian wines in general. Wine tasting are bought individually in 25, 50, or 100ml volumes. The 50mls at least gives you a few sips. This is an experience to linger over. Don't rush. Wines can be bought online at reduced prices. The "Cellar" also ships across Australia do you don't have to worry about travel damage.
