Now that our solar powered winery is up & running and we are making wine on-site for the first time, we can offer a more in-depth experience for visitors to Moores Hill with a vineyard walk and winery tour. There is lots of action in the vineyard and winery around Vintage time (March & April) but every season offers the opportunity for a different perspective on making wine. The content and format of the tour will vary, depending on the season.
The Autumn Vineyard Walk & Winery tour (runs till May 8)
Autumn is our harvest season so the tour will start with a stroll through the vines- we'll sample the fruit and check for ripeness. We'll taste some of our 2016 wines while we're among the vines. We'll walk through our 100% solar powered winery to learn about all the shiny equipment that we use to make wine and check on some ferments. We'll finish up in the cellar door and taste some more wines.
There'll be a maximum of 8 people on the tour so you can ask lots of questions.
Wear sturdy shoes, bring a hat and a jacket- be prepared for Tassie weather!
Cost per person is $25 (includes wine tasting). If you want to purchase our wines, you'll get a 10% discount on any bottles you purchase on the day of the tour.
The tour must be booked 24 hours in advance. You pay for your tour when you arrive at the cellar door, prepayment is not required.
Tours last approximately 45 minutes and run at 11:00am and 2:00pm daily (except Sundays)
You may wish to join us for a platter of local produce and a glass of wine or coffee, before or after your tour. Relax on the verandah and take in the views.
