Spend the day at Moorilla Estate for a unique Tasmanian winery experience that includes world-class art. You’ll start with a ferry ride and admission to Mona (the Museum of Old and New Art), known as much for its underground labyrinth-like architecture as for its art collection. Then enjoy a seasonal lunch, followed by a tasting and behind-the-scenes tour at Moorilla Estate, which continues to make ‘best of’ lists since it opened in 2011.

Highlights

  • Moorilla Estate winery tour and tasting with admission to Mona and round-trip ferry from Hobart
  • Discover the architectural wonder that was built underground to house Mona (Museum of Old and New Art)
  • Sample 10 different wines after a tour that explains the winemaking process from vineyard to bottle
  • Lunch at Source Restaurant
  • Choose the 9:30am ferry departure to have more time at the estate
  • Hear commentary from the ferry captain during the ride to the winery, and check out the onboard sculpture collection

What You Can Expect

Moorilla Estate Winery Tour Including Wine Tasting, Lunch and Mona Admission

Ferry Trip on River Derwent

Your tour starts at the Mona Ferry Terminal in Hobart for the 30-minute ferry ride along the River Derwent (when booking, select a ferry departure time, which determines how long you’ll be at the estate). During the ride, take in the custom-designed ferry’s interesting interior touches, from a cow sculpture to seats shaped like sheep.

Home to art and artifacts from Walsh’s private collection, the museum boasts a variety of items, from Greek coins to Egyptian mummies to daring modern art. Just as noteworthy is the design of Mona itself, an architectural stunner built mostly underground with 64,550 square feet (6,000 square meters) of exhibition space laid out like a labyrinth, which you can explore at your leisure.

Next, head to Source Restaurant for lunch. Enjoy any main meal, paired with a glass of wine from Moorilla’s Muse or Praxis Series and sweeping views of the vineyard, Derwent River, and Mount Wellington.

Continue with a behind-the-scenes tour and wine tasting in the vineyard, the second oldest in Tasmania. Learn how the grapes are handpicked, crushed, pressed, fermented, and matured, and how new and old artisan winemaking techniques are used to craft fragrant, elegant wines. Your host will provide an overview of the history of the region and winery, as well as information on the different grape varieties grown on site. The tasting features ten wines, including a selection from Moorilla’s prestigious Cloth Label Series.

When your time at Moorilla is up, catch the 5pm return ferry to Hobart.

I have been to a lot if different museums, but this one is quite unique. Loved the ferry ride over as it was a beautiful day. The lunch included at the wine bar was superb. Not sure if the time allowed for wine tasting is quite enough. Would go back to Museum again!

Was worried we had too much time but in the end we could have done with another 30mins. Gallery is magnificent. Lunch was delicious and service very attentive. Wine tour during vintage still accessed all areas and was informative and entertaining. All round great day out. Would hesitate to recommend.
