Full description
Our first stop today is “The Ridge”. Situated in the foothills of majestic Mt. Arthur, this is Tasmania’s highest vineyard, where owners Harry and Susie boast of turning mountain air into wine – and what’s not to love about that! When they’re not busy turning mountain air into wine, Harry (A rockstar with a Harvard law degree) can be found jamming with his band, whist Susie can be found with a brush in hand, painting landscapes of her idyllic surrounds or scenes from adventures further afield. Experience their “Altitude + Latitude + Attitude” philosophy on a progressive walking and tasting tour around their property and cellar door. Under the old oak tree of this ‘by appointment’ cellar door, let us introduce you to Tasmanian wine royalty. Seriously. This winemaker’s wine has been sipped by Queen Elizabeth II herself, and on more than one occasion! We are, of course, at Apogee. Tasmanian wine pioneer Dr. Andrew Pirie used his doctoral thesis knowledge (based around the perfect Tassie terrior) to plant two hectares at Lebrina. Andrew is, without a doubt, one of Australia’s most respected winemakers. We are honoured to invite you to taste Andrew’s passion for perfection in a disgorging demonstration followed by a private tasting, vineyard platter and lunch inspired by the season. Our third and final vineyard for the day is Delamere. Established in 1982, this is one of the oldest vineyards in the region. After collectively practising their winemaking craft in acclaimed wine regions across the world, vigneron duo Fran and Shane discovered the sparkling potential of the region in 2007 and have nurtured Delamere ever since. Consistently producing a range of both quality table wines and traditional method sparkling, Fran and Shane aim to “encapsulate the story of each season” in their beautiful wines. Discover the stories yourself while relaxing in their leafy cellar door garden.
