What are the best Tasmanian wines to drink? It’s a question we get asked a lot, and a difficult one to answer given the apple isle produces some of Australia’s finest cool climate wines, from pinot noir to sparkling wine and lesser known varietals such as arneis. Wines of Tasmania, a new online wine retailer, has launched monthly subscription boxes to give you the best Cellar Door experiences in the comfort of your own home, and at Holm Oak, we are thrilled to be a part of this exciting new venture.
Bird n Herd are a regular feature at our Cellar Door, serving up their delicious smoked ribs and slow cooked meats for visitors to enjoy with our wines. Get to know our friend Jason and the inspiration behind his food in our newest blog.
