The short days are a signal that Winter – The Off-Season – is here at The Farm Shed on Tassie’s East Coast, although that doesn’t mean that things are slowing down, with plenty of people visiting and enjoying all that is wonderful about the area. This effect is being amplified as we all continue to holiday at home, and the East Coast of Tasmania is a great place for a winter getaway – think long walks on deserted beaches, curling up with a good book, and, of course, some wonderful East Coast wine to warm the soul.
The Off-Season is, of course, a wonderful time to enjoy wine, and especially the red wines that are ripened by the warmth of the summer and autumn sunshine before having their flavours captured and released by skilled wine makers. And while Tasmania has long been famed for its lighter reds, there are growing ranges of rich, deep, full-flavoured reds being produced here too, including in Tasmania’s East Coast Wine Region.
At The Farm Shed we are in constant contact with all 22 of the producers up and down the East Coast, and stock a full range of pretty much every wine they sell. Every day we have up to 24 of them available for tastings and by the glass, and the full range is available from The Farm Shed by the bottle and the case.
So please call in at The Farm Shed when you visit Bicheno during this ‘off-season’ and let us introduce the amazing reds – and other wines – of Tasmania’s East Coast Wine Region. Enjoy a tasting of five wines for $12pp. You may find you’ll want to purchase the bottle (or six) to enjoy at home.
If you are travelling around Tasmania, we suggest that you check out all that is happening around the state during the ‘off-season’.
