The Hartzview Vineyard Heritage listed Pickers Hut Village is at Gardners Bay, in Tasmania’s South.
Take a stroll into history as you enjoy a self-guided discovery walk of the seven different restored small fruit pickers huts that families lived in during the picking season. Les and Lillian Polley established the fruit farm in the 1920’s. During World War two, some of these huts were home to Italian prisoners of war, who replaced agricultural workers serving overseas.
You can also visit the cellar door which is open every day and taste from the estate Reserve Pinot Noir, Chardonnays and the large range of preservative free fruit Ports, Liqueurs (Blackcurrant, Blackberry, Cherry, Blueberry, Raspberry, Tasmanian Cassis) and Mead.
The Vineyard Cafe is also open every day from 1000 to 1700 and serves all day lunches specialising in vineyard and cheese platters. Treat yourself to a delicious Hartzview dessert made especially with one of their fruit Ports or Liqueurs.
At the end of the day, unwind and stay a while to experience true luxury in Hartzview Vineyard’s self-contained spa homestead, relaxing in front of the log fire with a platter and glass of Hartzview Pinot Noir.
Gardner’s bay is a 45 minute drive (46 kilometres / 28 miles) South of Hobart.
