Sharmans Fine Wines is a boutique vineyard and cellar door located at Relbia, northern Tasmania. Relbia is a 15-minute drive south of Launceston (ten kilometres/six miles), a short distance from the Launceston airport.
Established in 1987, Mike and Philippa Sharman’s four-hectare (ten acre) Glenbothy Vineyard sits on the banks of the North Esk River. The vineyard has been planted with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties. A range of excellent cool wine styles is produced in relatively small quantities, including pinot noir, a Bordeaux blend, barrel-fermented and un-oaked Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and a sparkling wine.
Apart from the cellar door, Sharmans Wines can also be found at the Harvest Market Launceston in Cimitiere Street every Saturday, 0830 to 1230. Sharman’s Fine Wines is part of the Tamar Valley wine route.
