Moorilla Winery Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Art, wine, boutique accommodations—with a brewery thrown in for fun—that’s the experience waiting here at this vineyard just north of Hobart, where imposing Mt. Wellington rises in the distance yet you still smell salt on the breeze. Housed at one of Tasmania’s oldest vineyards, Moorilla Winery uses tight clusters of grapes that are grown on exceptionally mature vines, and crafts them into Chardonnay, Syrah, and Pinot Noir. Nearly 20 different wines in total are produced right here on the vineyard, which is conveniently set right next to MONA—the fascinating Museum of Old and New art that houses Australia’s largest private art collection in its modern, quirky interior. Combine a tour of the museum and vineyard before sitting down for a tasting, discussing the elements of art on display while swishing and sniffing your wine. If the entire experience is too good to leave, the boutique, luxurious MONA pavilions are located right on sight, so you can wake in the morning, enjoy the café, and spend another Hobart day surrounded by art and wine.
90 minute guided tours of the winery and tasting room depart at 3:30pm from Wednesday-Monday. Brewery tours take place on Fridays at 12:30pm.

4 Tours and Activities to Experience Moorilla Winery
Spend the day at Moorilla Estate for a unique Tasmanian winery experience that includes world-class art. You’ll start with a ferry ride and admission to Mona (the Museum of Old and New Art), known as much for its underground labyrinth-like architecture as for its art collection. Then enjoy a seasonal lunch, followed by a tasting and behind-the-scenes tour at Moorilla Estate, which continues to make ‘best of’ lists since it opened in 2011.
Moorilla’s Wine Ambassador - a true expert in all things wine - will take you on a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the Moorilla winery and vineyard. You’ll taste the wine as it’s being made and delve into the history of Moorilla, David Walsh and Claudio Alcorso, who planted Moorilla’s first vines. The tour includes an exclusive tasting of the best wines from Moorilla/Domaine A - decanted into fancy glassware, in the glamourous VIP tasting room. Includes a complimentary bottle of Muse wine to take home. Also onsite at Moorilla is Mona, Australia’s largest privately-owned gallery and museum. Mona exhibits everything from ancient Egyptian funerary objects and modernist masterpieces to a word waterfall. The Mona site - located on the banks of the River Derwent- is also home to luxury accommodation, bars, a restaurant and more.
Indulge in a VIP day out with this 8-hour Hobart tour that combines wine and art.

On our FULL DAY WINE TOUR we will visit 5 of southern Tasmania’s best wine producers, all within a short drive of Hobart. You will have the opportunity to meet some of the winemakers and taste a wide range of award winning, hand crafted, cool climate wines. You will be able to taste some world class sparkling wines, crisp cool climate white wines and velvety, seductive reds. During vintage you will see grapes being processed and wines being fermented in the wineries, and throughout the year you will see the grapes growing in the vineyard and the wines maturing in barrel rooms. You may even be lucky enough to try wine direct from the tanks or even from the barrels, depending on the time of the year and what the winemaker is working on that day. Expect a day packed full of wine tasting, tours, conversations and even some local cheeses thrown in for good measure.
