The Tamar Valley Wine Route gains a new cellar door, as sparkling specialist Clover Hill opens its architecturally distinct tasting rooms.
“Tasmania’s Tamar Valley Wine Route has gained a new cellar door, as sparkling specialist Clover Hill opens its architecturally distinct tasting rooms, overlooking the vineyard and out to the Bass Straight.”
Over a year in the making, the Clover Hill Cellar Door is NOW OPEN!
The neomodern building sits at the top of our sloping vineyard, so your eye is led down to the vines, and out to the Bass Strait. The rammed earth construction puts you inside the very soil and climate that can be tasted in our wines, and the Earthy colours, recessed floor lighting and tactile materials help foster this serene ambience and create visual linkages with the outdoor environment.
Adam Torpy, CEO, says “There’s a huge movement in the Australian industry at the moment with regard to landscape integration and impactful designs that reflect a winery’s uniqueness, and I can safely say you’ll see no other cellar door like this.” He adds: “It’s wonderful to think that everything we do at Clover Hill comes from this land and that the cellar door might give us another way to educate wine lovers about what makes the Lebrina site special.”
Adam says: “We’ve created nooks throughout the space in an effort to foster an atmosphere, and from every point you’re encouraged to look down through the vineyard.”
To celebrate the opening, Clover Hill is launching a cellar door exclusive range of six still wines under the label ‘Idiom’. These wines will be integrated into new tours and experience packages at Clover Hill, such as an Elite Experience aimed at small groups wishing to immerse themselves in Tasmanian sparkling production and learn about cellaring best practice.
We recommend to plan a visit to this iconic cellar door on the Tamar Valley Wine Route, North East Tasmania.
