Have you ever sampled a pinot noir from Resolution Vineyard, a gewurztraminer from IQ Wines, a Riesling from Mapleton or a pinot noir from Sailor Seeks Horse.
This weekend, March 2-3, vineyards in the south and east of Tasmania will open their doors to the public for wine tastings, food, entertainment and sales
The wineries involved will include several that do not have regular cellar doors, like Mewstone/Hughes & Hughes (above) and whose wines can often be hard to find.
New names include Altaness in the Huon Valley, Cathedral Rock in the Channel and Quiet Mutiny in the Derwent.
Leading Cider producers including Willie Smith's and Pagan are also involved in the two-day festivities.
Some wineries will offer food and entertainment and most will feature free tastings, with a handful charging a token sum.
Some, like Coal River Valley producers IQ Wines, Back Paddock and Six Friends, along with Derwent Valley producers Laurel Bank and Quiet Mutiny, will share a tasting facility, while bigger producers like Frogmore Creek and Pooley will show off some special wines.
