“Rustic charm and excellent wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

A true expression of what we love about Tasmania, this quaint heritage cottage conversion into a cellar door had our interest. Passing by two other contemporary vineyards that has become the mainstream, Gala with its character period features made for much more interesting conversation with the friendly, down to earth owner. As a relatively new winery, Gala has started on the right foot. A modest location with direct road frontage was more welcoming to us than grand signage and long tree lined driveways. The wines were excellent, loved the Sav Blanc. Very picturesque so get your cameras ready.

“Great place! Great wine! Great people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

This new boutique vineyard in Cranbrook is well worth a visit for some wine tasting! The owners have converted an existing shed to create a gorgeous, rustic, baltic pine cellar door. The owners and hosts, Adam and Grainne, are both cheerful, friendly people who have some great stories to share. And the wine...to die for!!! This is a perfect spot to stop when travelling the East Coast. And if you can't get to their cellar door, order some of their wine online.Their Pinot Noir is the best I've had!

The wine was great, especially Pinot Noir. Loved the Rustic Original Home/Shop with its classic old furnishings and surrounding buildings. A photographers delight and a wine tasters must do experience!!

“Vintage Tasmania at its best !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

We drop in on our way up and down the East Coast of Tasmania and the owners of Gala Estate Winery have done a great thing by not destroying the classic old timber buildings and surrounding structures. Great hand crafted wines that are superb. Well Done Team Gala !!! Steven & Kim.

“Jee Wizz That is Good Booze”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

Wow………what an experience. We saw the cellar door positioned perfectly in the sleepy village of Cranbrook and couldn’t help but call in. All the wines are amazing and the service from the tall ruggered farmer and his smoking hot wife were second to none. We loved them so much we bought 4 cases of each. Thanks Gala Estate
