Our Signature Tour has been designed to offer our guests the best of both worlds when it comes to sampling Tasmanian beverages. The morning half of the tour takes place in the beautiful Huon Valley, home to Tasmania’s bountiful apple and cherry orchards. This is a chance to sample award-winning wines including sparkling, chardonnay, pinot noir, dessert wines and more while taking a leisurely stroll through the vineyards. You’ll also get to experience traditional farmhouse style organic apple ciders and compare them to more modern examples made from a variety of fruits from the valley including apple, pear, cherry, peach, blueberry, quince and which ever fruits are in season. Local produce from the valley will be on offer for lunch at the Apple Shed, which never fails to impress! You may opt to just do the morning half of the tour and depart the drop-off location in Hobart or guests are most welcome to join or book for the Beer and Whisky afternoon with more behind the scenes tours of process, tastings and relaxation at the breweries and distilleries we visit, either way there’s something for everyone on this tour.
After meeting your guide at the base of the ramp at Brooke Street Pier, we begin the day with a complimentary tea/coffee over introductions at Bright Eyes. We’ll discuss Hobart’s infamous history dating back to 1803 and the role that alcohol played during settlement before departing for the Huon Valley.
