Tasmanians set to show off some of their star red wines


Tasmanian wineries are coming together later this month to show off their red wines and to celebrate the end of a bumper 2016 vintage. 

The Red Wine Weekend in Hobart on May 21-22 will showcase 55 red wines from over 25 vineyards from around the state - including some star pinot noirs.

The Red Wine Weekend uses a different format to most consumer tastings with the wines arranged by vintage, variety and style rather than by label or brand. 

The organisers, Wine South, believe this facilitates a seamless exploration of the wine varieties and styles, and enables a complete appreciation of the range of wines available within each particular category.
  
  
"It is our common focus on quality which enables such a wide range of individuals to come together and make an event like this to really work," the Wine South Committee said in a statement. 

"It is also what sets Tasmanian wine apart from the plethora of commercial wines so widely available. Some of our members are from some of Tasmania’s smallest vineyards and many of the wines we will be showing will never even be seen on a bottle shop shelf; this really is a unique opportunity taste some beautiful Tasmanian wines and speak to their makers." 

The Red Wine Weekend will be held at Princes Wharf No.1 from noon on both days. 

Tickets are $25 online or $30 at the door and the entry fee includes a crystal Plumm glass valued at $24.95, comprehensive tasting notes and entry into the lucky door prize of a dozen Tasmanian wines.
