If Pinot is the David Bowie of wine, then consider the Pinot Shop Carnegie Hall.
Specialising in the “best of premium Pinot Noir”, the Pinot Shop, based in Launceston, Tasmania, is Australia’s home of all things Pinot.
Nestled on the Tamar River near Launceston’s Cataract Gorge, and surrounded by foodie delights such as Stillwater restaurant and The Mill Providore, it’s become a destination unto itself, with Pinot lovers trekking from far and wide to marvel at the Pinot Shop’s collection of rare, wonderful, international, Australian and (of course) Tasmanian Pinot Noir.
