DescriptionEnjoy a unique Tasmanian winery experience that includes world-class art on this self-guided tour from Hobart as you visit Moorilla Estate and discover Mona, the Museum of Old And New Art. Wine and art. A match made in the proverbial. Moorilla used to just be a winery, then a gambler called David filled the place with art and antiquities. Once he ran out of room, he built a museum to hold it all, called Mona. This experience is all about showing you the whole shebang. Start by sailing from Hobart to Mona on one of their super-flash ferries (featuring on-board bars if you want to get the wine flowing early). Once you land, begin your self-guided exploration of the museum and grounds, working up an appetite for a lunch of fresh, locally sourced produce in one of the on-site restaurants featuring a matched Moorilla wine. After lunch, meet up with your Moorilla host, who’ll walk you down to the vineyard, covering the rich history of Moorilla and the finer points of our winemaking techniques as you go. The stroll will wind up back at the sun-drenched Moorilla cellar door, where you’ll settle in for some further tasting of the Moorilla range before heading back to Hobart on the early evening ferry.
