    Honestly didn’t know about Tasmanian wines, Susan. But then again I should not be surprised considering that Australian wines are famous.

    • Kathy

      Hi Catarina, I’m thinking I should seek out some wine from the US and do a comparison!

  • Jacqueline Gum

    Pinot Noir is one of my favorites. Interesting…I had no idea they made wine in Tasmania! It’s on my list………….

    • Kathy

      Hi Jacqueline, I hope you have the chance to find some Tasmanian wine where you live!

    Kathy seems lovely and as for the healthier wine–I am all for that. Especially love that they don’t use shellfish or egg. Does thus make it an altogether vegan wine?

    • Kathy

      Bethany, yes, it is vegan and organic – Monique is also vegetarian 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

    Now that’s new one for me – biodynamic. Sounds impressive. Are they leading the way with this process, or is it a common thing? I am thinking marketing.

    I am not able to drink alcohol, including wine. It’s nice to meet you though! 🙂

    • Kathy

      Hi Cheryl, biodynamic agriculture uses special preparations to enhance the soil – you might say it’s like homeopathic medicine. There are quite a few organic wines in Australia, and at least one large biodynamic vineyard on the mainland. Sorry you can’t drink wine 🙁

  • Rebecca Thompson

    Fabulous – a wine I know I can get here in Australia 🙂 🙂 🙂
    I loved the post but am still getting over the fact she has 14 children!!!
    I’m off to purchase a bottle right now…

    • Thanks Rebecca… me too… LOL. I would love to hear how you liked the wine when you give it a try. 🙂

  • Kathy

    Hi Rebecca – great! Another Australian! Have a wonderful evening with your Lubiana wine 🙂

    • I love it when two people find each other with a common interest. 🙂

  • Hi Kathy,

    Good to see wines from Tassie being promoted. I have seen their wines in stores but haven’t tried them. Will remedy that on next visit to the shops.

    • Kathy

      Hi Susan, I’m glad to know that some are available in the US – I hope you find a nice one!!

      • I am another Aussie Kathy

        • Kathy

          Oh Susan, I get it now – which state?

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried a Tasmanian wine, so I’m pinning this so I can keep an eye out for it.

    • Kathy

      Hi Jeri, think of us going into summer, when you enjoy your wine!

  • Hi Kathy, I have been totally out of pocket and haven’t had time to check in until now. You did a very nice job showcasing this wine and winery. I can’t wait to give it a try. 🙂

    • Kathy

      Oh Susan – the bad news!!! A postal worker called me to say that the wine can’t be posted – being a PROHIBITED SUBSTANCE and all!!! This won’t look good in my Homeland Security file – (earlier this year, my son tried to buy a laser pointer from ebay but it was confiscated, so I’m already known to the Customs dep’t!)
      I’ll try and get a photograph of the cute Australian stamps I used for you…
      So sorry…:(

      • No worries Kathy. It’s the effort that counts. Thanks for trying.

  • Adrienne

    Welcome to Susan’s place Kathy and thanks for sharing this wine with us.

    As Susan knows I’m not a big wine connoisseur but I do love wine. I’ve always heard that the Australian wines are just fabulous so I have no doubt this one is as well.

    Appreciate this write up.


    P.S. Disque isn’t cooperating today and it won’t sign me in. Bummer!

    • Kathy

      Hi Adrienne, I’m glad to see I’m not the only one having trouble with Disqus! It’d kind of nice to be known as a ‘guest’ anyway…

  • Debra Yearwood

    I’m not sure I’ve ever tried a Tasmanian wine, but do like quite a few Australian wines, so I am curious. I love that it is organic too as I’ve find them easier to digest than the “traditional” methods. How did adding chemicals become traditional? 🙂 Thanks for the introduction.

    • Kathy

      Hi Debra – that’s a good question about the chemicals…I went through a stage where I couldn’t drink wine or anything with sulfates added; even though I can tolerate them now, this biodynamic wine tastes so much nicer.

  • Jon Jefferson

    I love cellar pics. This one reminds me of some of the French aging cellars I have seen pics of. How large is it?

    • I do too Jon, I try to get them when ever I’m at a winery. 🙂
