Observatory Hill Vineyard

Observatory Hill is a family owned and operated, boutique vineyard situated 10 km from the Hobart CBD.

With a long Tasmanian family tradition of working the land, vigneron Glenn Richardson and his wife Chris, planted the first vines on the Mt Rumney property in 1991. Initial success with Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varieties led to subsequent plantings of Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. With the purchase of the adjoining property by Chris' brother, Wayne Ramsey and sister in law, Stephanie, a further 2 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris were added in 2005. Observatory Hill has become a brand well known for our premium, boutique, cool climate wines of consistently high quality.

Tetsuya is number one - again!

The restaurant of iconic chef – and Brand Tasmania Ambassador – Tetsuya Wakuda, has once again been named as the best in Australia. And, fittingly it was the backdrop for a major investment dinner recently hosted by Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman, in conjunction with Brand Tasmania. Tetsuya’s eponymous Sydney establishment has just won Restaurant of the Year at the Savour Australia Restaurant and Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence. The prestigious award is the latest in a long list of accolades that Tetsuya has collected since opening in 1989, and he told Restaurant and Catering Magazine it is a reflection of those around him: “I congratulate my staff. The team won this, not me. A good restaurant is a team effort.” Meantime, Tetsuya has long been a champion of Tasmania which he describes as “beyond organic,” and his restaurant hosted a special dinner showcasing the finest from the island state to potential investors. Premier Will Hodgman led the guest list at Tetsuya’s ‘Taste of Tasmania Dinner: From Sky to Land and Sea’, which featured such exquisite combinations as: Cold Green Pea Soup with Bitter Chocolate Sorbet; Confit of Petuna Ocean Trout with Salad of Apple and Witlof; Poached Lobster in Vanilla with Cannellini Beans and Coffee Vinaigrette; and Chocolate Stone with Fortunato No 4. It was a stunning menu, and further proof that Tetsuya’s really does deserve the title of Australia’s best restaurant.

Tolpuddle chardonnay shines

A Tasmanian vineyard has shone at the 2018 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. Tolpuddle Vineyard won four major trophies, with its 2017 chardonnay picking up three of the awards: Best Young White Wine; Best Chardonnay; and Best Single Vineyard. Tolpuddle winemaker, Adam Wadewitz said: “I guess we always knew the 2017 vintage was pretty special in Tasmania. The season was astonishing; late and cool, and it produces wines with that rarely seen ‘balance and intensity’ combination.” Tolpuddle Vineyard is located in the Coal River Valley and was established in 1988. It is planted solely with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Other Tasmanian winners in Melbourne were: The Bay of Fires winery which won the James Halliday Trophy for best pinot noir with its 2017 release; the House of Arras, named Best Sparkling for its chardonnay/pinot noir Grand Vintage 2008; and Eddystone Point, awarded Best Riesling for its 2018 vintage.

New Moo Brew a stout order

As artisan foods and beverages continue to boom across the Island State, a new barrel-aged stout has been launched onto the market, just in time for the festive season. This rich, dense beer has been created by Tasmania’s Moo Brew, that says it will only get better with age. The Moo Brew Imperial Stout – made in collaboration with Sydney’s Archie Rose Distilling Company – has been aged in single malt whisky and ex-bourbon American oak barrels and weighs in at an imposing 10.8% alcohol level. Moo Brew are getting ready for an enthusiastic response. “It’s big,” Moo Brew head brewer Dave Macgill said. “We encourage people to enjoy this beer now, but those partial to cellaring will be rewarded. This stout has a rich, dense palate thanks to the ex-bourbon barrels and Archie Rose whisky, high residual sugar and specialty roasted malts.”
