Tastings + Wine Bar

Wine Bar

The Farm Shed’s wine bar is your one stop shop for Tasmania’s East Coast wine region, offering tastings and sales of 90 wines from 22 vineyards local vineyards between Orford to just north of St Helens, including many that do not have their own cellar doors.

Our Enomatic wine bar system enables us to have 24 wines available at any one time for tastings and by the glass, meaning that we have at least one wine from every producer in the East Coast Wine Region available at all times.

We don’t believe there are many other regional-specific wine centres around Australia that can boast that sort of comprehensive coverage of their region, and we reckon it really does fulfil our promise about The Farm Shed being THE place to discover and enjoy the wines of our region.

Pull up a seat at our shared tables and order a glass of one of our wines – we have two dozen wines available each day by the glass. Or let us guide you through a selection of our wines (or our hand-picked selection of local whiskies and gins) with a tasting first, so you can decide what you’d like to try more of.

Hosted Wine Tastings

We have 24 varieties from across all 22 East Coast Wine Region producers available for tasting. Those on taste are also available by the glass.

Tastings are $12 per person and feature five wines, equal to one standard drink – not a lot of alcohol, but lots of fun.

We pour and tell the story of the vineyard in question, which is often fascinating and unexpected in itself. Further information is available on signs in our wine bays. We have tasting notes from each of the vineyards.
