The Search is on for Tasmania's Best Wine List
Wine Tasmania is on a mission to find Tasmania’s best list of local wines and is inviting the wine-loving public to help choose the winner.
Following an application process, finalists in the 2021 Tasmanian Wine List of the Year competition have been selected and voting for the People’s Choice Best Tasmanian Wine List is now open – with each vote also entering the draw to win 12 bottles of premium local wine.
This program, now in its fourth year, is presented by Wine Tasmania to recognise and champion Tasmanian businesses supporting the island’s outstanding wines. The People’s Choice award is one of several awards, which include Judges’ Choice categories based on the percentage of Tasmanian wines by the glass and bottle, diversity of styles, regional representation as well as quality of service, training and wine knowledge.
