2021 GREAT EASTERN WINE WEEK

Welcome to the 2021 Great Eastern Wine Week

East Coast Tasmania, 3-13 September 2021

YES you read that right! The Great Eastern Wine Weekend, is now extended to be held over a WEEK!

Stretching along 221km of coastline envied for our cool-climate drops, The Great Eastern Wine Week is an 11-day festival and is a collective of nearly 50 events at the region’s boutique wineries and other local businesses. Meet the winemakers, the growers, the producers, and the people behind the wine. It’s all about the people, the places, the natural beauty and the stories of the East Coast, as well as of course, enjoying our award-winning wines!

Why not combine an event with mountain biking in St Helens, a boat cruise in the Bay of Fires, exploring Freycinet Peninsula and Wineglass Bay or a visit to Maria Island to see their unique blonde wombats. There’s so much to do!

Vineyards along the East Coast Wine Trail offer tastings and wine sales, and East Coast restaurants showcase the finest vintages. Meet growers and makers as you experience some of the most spectacular East Coast scenery. Click here for the East Coast Wine Trail – Cellar Door Directory.

We look forward to celebrating with you and join in on the conversation on social media #greateasternwineweek #geww2021 #eastcoasttasmania #eastcoastshines
