Fodor's Review

Along both sides of the Tamar River north of Launceston, the soil and cool weather are perfect for grape growing. Here in the Tamar Valley wine region, some of outstanding varieties grown include Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Chardonnay; the sparkling wines produced here are world-leading. A map of the route, available for download at their website, will help you to plan your visit. Noteworthy stops along the route are Moores Hill, Hollyman wines at Stoney Rise, Clovery Hill,

and Jansz. To help pace yourself, pop into Strathlynn Restaurant at Ninth Island for an unbelievable rustic lunch inspired by the microculture of the Tamar.
