Christmas Eve opening for Tasmania's latest cellar door and eatery

Christmas Eve might not be the ideal day to launch your spectacular new cellar door and French restaurant, but owners Wendy and Ian Roberts are not prepared to wait any longer. 



The couple has already launched a new wine range, Roaring 40s, for sale at the new facility and they aim to make their Riversdale Estate property, in the Coal River Valley outside Hobart, one of Tasmania's leading wine destinations. 



Located in the shadow of the famous UTAS radio telescope, Riversdale Estate has until now been best-known for its luxury accommodation in several vineyard cabins.

The vines produce pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, pinot meunier and shiraz and much of the fruit has in the past been sold to labels including Treasury Wine Estate's Heemskerk.

After a launch scheduled for December 1 was abandoned because of an issue involving the water supply, Riversdale Estate is now ready to welcome visitors to a new cellar door tasting room overlooking the vines and the French Bistro restaurant, which will offer Riversdale wines along with some international benchmarks. 


The new development has spectacular views of the estate’s 37-hectare vineyard and adjacent wetlands and will be complemented by the opening of a Peter Rabbit-themed children’s garden scheduled to open in January. Afternoon teas are also set to become a feature after the holiday period.
The new facility will be open seven days a week 9am-5pm and will only close on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and key public holidays. 

Riversdale Estate, 222 Denholms Road, Cambridge, Tasmania. (03) 6248 5666
