Spring has sprung and the Artists and Makers of the Huon Valley have joined forces with two local wineries to welcome visitors to the Huon Valley just in time for the Holidays. This year we are teaming up with two of the Huon Valleys premium wine makers and flinging open the actual doors to our studios and cellar doors for tastings. Mark your calendars now and start planning your stops on this not to be missed weekend in the Huon Valley.
This will be a rare opportunity to visit some of the secret studios hidden away in the valley and visit the artists in their creative environments. A chance to talk to them about what inspires their work and buy special pieces direct from the artist. Over three days, December 4-6, 2020 the cellar doors of the wineries and 8 participating art studios will be open from 10am to 4:00 pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There will be maps with studio locations available at each location. Or you can visit our web page with an interactive map and participating artist information.
Each of the participating business has implemented a COVID-19 safety plan so you can travel around and visit with health confidence.
The artists and wineries are putting together two fabulous prizes comprised of a mixture of art works, vouchers, and wine. There will be an opportunity to fill out an entry form for the draw at each participating studio. The draw will take place on Monday December 7th at the Huon News in Franklin, Tasmania. You must be 18 years old to enter the Draw. Participating wineries and artists include:
- Kate Hill Wines;
