Wine and Vine Adventures

A wine lover's delight! At the local Freycinet Winery, you will learn the art of winemaking and indulge in some fine Tasmanian fare – and some wine tastings of course!

Wine and Barrel Experience

Just 30 minutes away from Saffire, the port town of Bicheno is home to arguably one of Australia’s most unique wineries. Housed in an old fish processing plant and on the shore of the Tasman Sea, Apsley Gorge vineyard has become one of Tasmania’s premium wine labels.

After working for ten years in Burgundy learning the finer points of viticulture, Brian Franklin has returned home to make what is arguably Australia’s most surprising Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Attracting a niche following within restaurants around Australia and the world, Brian does not open to the public, but rather offers exclusive access to guests of Saffire. Join Brian as he takes you through his barrel rooms, and winemaking rooms. Taste wines straight from barrels of French oak at varying toasts, grains and vintages and of course the final product! A memorable experience for the most ardent pinot fan and novice alike.
