Less than half an hour drive from the centre of Launceston is Tasmania's premier wine growing area - the Tamar Valley.  Here you'll find the orchard, farms and wineries for which Tasmania is famous. This is where the acclaimed cool-climate wines are grown and because many of the vineyards are small and family-owned the growers themselves will greet you and explain just how the wine is made.

The best way to access the Valley is to get a copy of the 'Tasmania Wine Route Guide', available free from the Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre.
