Great Eastern Wine Week 2022 program launched, welcoming visitors to Tasmania’s east coast • Glam Adelaide

East Coast Tasmania Tourism and East Coast Wine Trail Association have unveiled the program for this year’s Great Eastern Wine Week, with 221km of Tasmania’s pristine east coast coming to life from September 9-18, with over 60 foodie events and wine tastings created in collaboration with the best producers in the region.

“After last year’s closures closed the region off to the mainland, we couldn’t be more delighted to welcome visitors back to Tasmania’s beautiful east coast. Our annual Great Eastern Wine Week is the perfect time to visit, as the region’s best winemakers, artisans, restaurants and cafes come alive with special events and experiences taking place over 10 days.

The week has undoubtedly become one of Tasmania’s best-loved events on the food, wine and travel calendar – the region is a wine and seafood lover’s paradise,” said Rhonda Taylor, CEO East Coast Tasmania Tourism. “Spring is such a great time of year to visit East Coast Tassie. Among the well-known natural wonders of Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay and Bay of Fires; to the more adventurous experiences of St Helens mountain bike trails, unique wukalina walk and wombat tour on Maria Island; to exploring the East Coast Wine Trail – there’s something for every type of traveller”.

Highlights from this year’s event include:

– Black Tie and Blundstone cocktail at the new Devil’s Corner cellar door

– The Battle of the Vines at Restaurant Furneaux

– High Tea with perfectly matched wines at Craigie Knowe Vineyard

– Great Eastern Wine Cruise with Wineglass Bay Cruises

– ‘Wild Abundance’ kitchen with games workshop at Twamley Farm

– Long Table lunch at the Ferme Marine de Freycinet

A selection of masterclasses will also be offered, including East Coast Wine Flavors Masterclasses at Freycinet Lodge; Plumm Glassware Masterclasses at Craigie Knowe Vineyard; and VIP Whiskey and Gin Masterclasses at the Spring Bay Distillery. For those who prefer to take a more spontaneous approach, there’s a selection of events every day, including pop-up tastings and cheese platters at Hurly Burly Wines; Tasting plates and old vintages at the Milton vineyard; and wine tasting at all East Coast Wine Trail cellar doors every day of the festival.

“The East Coast is unique in that it is the hottest and driest area of ​​cool-climate Tasmania. Although it’s a fairly new wine region, its maritime climate makes it perfect for producing incredible pinot noir, chardonnay and sparkling wines, says Great Eastern Wine Week curator Glenn Travers. “We truly feel that some of Australia’s best wine and produce comes from Tasmania and we look forward to welcoming visitors back to experience the unique terroir and sea of ​​the East Coast, as well as our beaches, landscapes and world-famous adventures, and not just during the event. , but all year round.

Great Eastern Wine Week 2022 will run from September 9-18 and tickets are on sale now.

Sit on deck and take in panoramic views of the majestic Hazards and the Freycinet Peninsula. Located on the East Coast, Devil’s Corner Cellar Door is more than just a place to sample our award-winning wines.
