We travel from Hobart out to the Coal River Valley to our first stop at Frogmore Creek Vineyard, after you taste their great wines you will have time for a browse around their amazing gift shop and you have to see the amazing floor upstairs; a pictorial jigsaw of the history of the wine industry in the valley.

Then we visit the very picturesque Puddleduck Vineyard. Apart from fantastic wines they also have some unique names such as Bubbleduck and Bazil Signature. Bazil was one of their delightful dogs who appeared in the book called Wine Dogs. Don't forget to leave with a bottle of Bubbleduck ready for your next celebration!

Don't forget to check out Richmond Bakery, famous for the Curried Scallop Pies. Our next stop will be either Pressing Matters or Stoney A vineyard, depending on availability.

We then travel back via Richmond to visit Pooley Vineyard, winner of the 2012 Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year award where you can taste a range of their award winning wines set in historic surroundings.

Just down the road is Wicked Cheese Co where you can enjoy a taste test of Ashley and Jennifer's award winning cheeses.

The milk for the cheese comes from chemical and hormone free cows grazing on grass just down the road. As Ashley says if you want to produce the finest cheese you have to start with the finest milk. So don't forget to take home some of their delicious products. Our last stop is at Coal River Vineyard not only do they have wonderful wines but also the views in the Valley!
