Food and wine in Tasmania are thriving. With an abundance of growers, makers and creators, it is now an ever-growing and vibrant part of local Tassie life. Some of Australia's best produce is grown in Tasmania, from orchards of pears, apple and cherries to fields of lavender, it is no surprise that it hosts many of the nation's first vineyards. The cool climate provides the ideal environment for slow maturity of the fruit, allowing the Apple Isle to produce several distinctive and flavoursome wine varietals.
