Overview

In the heart of Hobart's colourful dock precinct, you will embark on an exclusively Tasmanian wine experience at the Gasworks Cellar Door. With 16 Tasmanian wines always on tasting, a knowledgeable wine expert to guide you through the ever-changing labels, a stylish interior design, and fascinating information about the island's wines and history- this is no ordinary tasting experience. With its sandstone facade and tall brick chimney, it's clear that the Gasworks complex has an industrial past. The cylindrical gasometer tank that once stored coal-gas is gone, but this is the place where coal was burned to generate the gas that lit the streets of Hobart. The Cellar Door itself is located in the original Gasworks head office, where high ceilings, polished Tasmanian oak floors and a sweeping timber staircase reflect the importance of the enterprise from the late 1850s. How it works:- Your guide will introduce each wine in detail, talking about the region, the climate and the winemaking techniques that create each one's special character. To taste your way around the Gasworks Cellar Door, you purchase a tasting card for $10. There are three cards •12 wines (20ml each) •6 wines (40ml each) or, •3 wines (80ml each) The 12-wine card gives you the widest options; while the 3-wines card lets you savour a trio of your choice.

This was a good tasting and the girl was very knowledgeable but it lacked personality. It was a very sterile environment. I could have been in a doctor's surgery. Where were the quirky wall hangings, some music, interesting pictures or at least a view. Most...More

We spent some time at Gasworks this afternoon with Daniella. She was fantastic! She took the time to explain to us the nuances of the different regions and characteristics of Tasmanian Red &White wines. I can't recommend her professionalism and Gasworks highly enough!
