Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“A lovely couple of hours”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

On a blustery winter's afternoon three friends ventured down to gasworks cellar door. We were greeted warmly and experienced an educational, informative and very knowledgeable tasmanian wine tasting from some of our world class cellar doors from around the state. The wines were described and their makeup of different area grapes and their characteristics pointed out in the flavour. It was a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours.

“Stepping on the Gas”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Outstanding attraction in the heart of Hobart showcasing an array of Tasmanian wines from across the various regions. Informative guides educate and entertain you through 16 possible tastings. Very good value and definitely bucket list for those that enjoy a glass or two of wine. Totally recommend.

“A perfect spot to sample a wide range of wines”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

For a small fee you can sample a wide range of Tasmanian wines at this venue that is very close to the Hobart water front. The selection is impressive and the information excellent. As well, the atmosphere is laid back - it is a very relaxing way to experience the local wines.
