“Stel has a real feel for his subject and knows how to communicate it in a friendly, informative way. The tours are not snobby, they’re fun and one gets to try some very nice tipples…highly recommended and a great experience for couples or groups.”

Regions we visit

Our Wine Tours are a non-judgemental, fun day out. Your guided tour Hobart Tasmania may cover 1 or more regions in the one day.

My aim is to ensure that by the wine tour’s end you will have enough wine knowledge and wine information to be confident and comfortable to evaluate and talk about wine, and in particular “Cool Climate Wine”. The vineyards surrounding Hobart are within 20 to 45 minutes’ drive, and are close to the city’s centre. The vineyards in the east, northwest and south/southwest areas outside Hobart offer different climatic and geological elements that influence the flavours in the grape and hence the flavours in the wines produced.
