One of Australia's newest wine districts, Tasmania is most prominently noted for its cool climate allowing for production of quality riesling, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir wines.

Barely 20 years old, the wine industry in Tasmania has quickly caught on to wine tourism and has developed a network of hotels and high-end restaurants to cater to wine enthusiasts with annual cultural events like the Royal Hobart Wine Show and The Taste of Tasmania.

There are three general wine areas throughout the island beginning with the warmer Tasmanian northwest coast wine region taking in the Devonport area, and east to the Tamar Valley and Pipers River, and down around the the mid-east coast region of the Freycinet Peninsula.

The second broad region includes the east coast from the area around Hobart (Tasmania’s first vineyard was planted at New Town, a Hobart suburb, in 1821) and north to Bicheno. The third region encompasses the Coal River Valley, the Derwent Valley, and the Huon Valley south of Hobart.
