Sixteen venues have been selected as finalists in the Tasmanian Wine List of the Year program, now in its sixth year.
The program aims to recognise Tasmanian businesses which “proudly and enthusiastically” promote Tasmanian wine in their hospitality and retail offerings.
“This year represents the broadest geographic spread of finalists so far, from Stanley to Port Huon and lots of places in between,” Wine Tasmania CEO Sheralee Davies says.
“It’s fantastic to see such strong support for our local wine offering, and we’re encouraging Tassie wine lovers to get out and visit new venues or revisit venues they haven’t for a while and vote for their favourite.”
The announcement of the finalists marks the start of the People’s Choice voting campaign, which invites Tasmanian wine lovers to vote for their favourite venue.
Each vote in the 2023 People’s Choice Award provides a chance to win 12 mixed bottles of Tasmanian wine.
The People’s Choice is one of several award categories which will be considered by the judging panel, including Best Hobart/Launceston Wine List, Best Regional Wine List, Best Small Wine List and Best Retail Wine List, as well as the overall champion Tasmanian Wine List of the Year.
