Tasmania’s largest food and wine event program returns to East Coast Tasmania this September

East Coast Tasmania establishes itself as a leading culinary and cultural destination, showcasing the region’s best food and wine experiences during Great Eastern Wine Week, from September 9 – 18.

Great Eastern Wine Week, Tasmania’s largest food and wine event program returns to East Coast Tasmania this September, with its most impressive line up to date. After two years of border restrictions impacted incoming tourism, a raft of new culinary and cultural experiences will be included as part of this year’s event; including the recently reinvigorated Devil’s Corner Cellar Door (recently appearing on MasterChef Australia’s ‘Tasmania Week’) and newly launched one-of-a-kind salt sommelier experience as a partnership between Tasman Sea Salt and Mayfield Estate Cellar Door.

“After last year’s lockdowns closed off the region to the mainland, we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome visitors back to the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania. Our annual Great Eastern Wine Week is the perfect time to visit, as the region’s best winemakers, artisans, restaurants and cafés come alive with special events and experiences rolling out over 10 days.

The week has without a doubt become one of Tasmania’s most loved events in the food, wine and travel calendar – the region is a wine and seafood lover’s paradise”, says Rhonda Taylor, CEO East Coast Tasmania Tourism. “Spring is such a beautiful time of year to visit East Coast Tassie. From the well-known natural wonders of Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay and Bay of Fires; to the more adventurous experiences of St Helens Mountain Bike Trails, the unique Wukalina Walk and visiting the wombats on Maria Island; through to exploring the East Coast Wine Trail – there’s something for every type of traveller”.

Returning from September 9 – 18 and spanning 221km of Tasmania’s pristine eastern coastline, Great Eastern Wine Week will showcase the best of the region’s culinary and cultural experiences. The event offers the perfect opportunity to experience over 60 food and wine events created in collaboration with the region’s best producers; in addition to East Coast landmarks such as such as breathtaking Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay, Bay of Fires, and the wombats of Maria Island, alongside lesser known gems of St Helens Mountain Bike Trails and the Hazards.

Great Eastern Wine Week Curator, Glenn Travers adds: “We truly feel that some of Australia’s best wine and produce come from Tasmania and we look forward to welcoming visitors back to experience the East Coast’s unique terroir and merroir, along with our world-famous beaches, landscapes and adventures, not only during the event, but all year round”.
