Bream Creek Vineyard, established by industry pioneer Fred Peacock in 1990, finally has a cellar door to complement the famous label.
The new cellar door is at the top of the Bream Creek vineyard – first planted in 1974 – and features spectacular views over Marion Bay and Maria Island.
After about five years of planning – interrupted by Covid – the cellar door was officially opened in early August by Tasmanian Premier Jeremy Rockliff.
Fred says the new cellar door is a “natural reaction” to an increase in both demand for Tasmanian wines as well as the increase in local wine tourism.
“This is an exciting development, as we have received lots of requests over many years from our wine followers and the general public, for an opportunity to visit us and for a venue where they can taste our wines while taking in the spectacular scenery,” he says.
“We were fortunate to receive some financial support from the State Government toward this development and are very pleased that the Premier was available to officially open our cellar door.”
Bream Creek – one of Tasmania’s first wine producers – has won more than 60 Australian and international wine show trophies and more than 1,180 wine show medals including 325 gold.
The new cellar door will feature some wines that are not available elsewhere.
