The Great Eastern Wine Weekend showcases the East Coast of Tasmania’s finest food and signature drops. The two-day event held on the weekend of September 10-11 2016 offers an opportunity to explore the area’s wine region. The East Coast’s wineries along the Great Eastern Drive will open their cellar doors and provide various special offers during the weekend. Special events include a Bubbles and Bivalves tour at Freycinet Marine Farm, where the farm comes to you, and a cruise to sample three wines and local produce in Wineglass Bay. The highlight event is the Great Eastern Wine and Dine gala dinner at Freycinet Lodge on September 10, with a sunset feast overlooking Great Oyster Bay featuring Tasmanian produce with matched wines presented by their respective winemakers.

Bookings are essential for these three special events.
