The best of Tasmania heads for Sydney and Melbourne

Tasmania's cool-climate wines just keep growing in popularity - and visibility - and while many of the smaller producers sell all they make on the island there is still lots to discover. 

If you don't have the time to fly down and explore the Apple Isle, many of the best winemakers in the state will be heading to Sydney and Melbourne later this year; bringing a little taste of Tasmania to you. 


Presented by Wine Tasmania, with support from Bottle Shop Concepts, VIN Diemen will return to Melbourne and Sydney (but not Brisbane) in August. 

Around 1,000 food and wine lovers visited the events in 2015, tasting tipples from Josef Chromy, Stefano Lubiana, Holm Oak, Jansz, Willie Smith Cider and Lark Distillery. 

The organisers are promising this year will be even bigger with a hit parade of Tasmania’s celebrated wines, including sparkling, riesling, chardonnay, pinot noir and more, all on taste alongside Tassie gourmet goodies. 


Like last year, the event will include more than just the strong wine line-up. VIN Diemen will also be bringing a taste of the island’s other beverages such as cider, and its luxury produce for festival-goers to feast upon, and outstanding tourism offerings.

The full line-up of producers will be announced in the coming weeks, and tickets will go on sale in June.

The dates are: 

Melbourne: Sunday, August 21, 11am-5pm: Meat Market, 5 Blackwood Street, North Melbourne. $40 (early bird)/$50 (general sale), includes take-home premium wine glass. 
Sydney: Saturday, August 27, 11am-5pm: Cell Block Theatre at the National Art School, Forbes Street, Darlinghurst. $40 (early bird)/$50 (general sale).
