A wine trail of great quality. Great wineries, fantastic wines, amazing cellar doors. Terrific friendly people. Every cellar door was staffed by passionate, knowledgeable staff. Often owners who were so proud of their Wines.

Drove the valley from Launceston via Beaconsfield to Greens Beach and then over Batman Bridge to Georgetown and return. Some of the views were spectacular but didn't find the charming little villages I was hoping for.
