Treat your taste buds

THE 21st annual Tasmanian Fruit, Wine and Cider Festival will be returning to Bellerive Boardwalk on 1 March, inviting locals to treat their taste buds to all the unique flavours our country has to offer.

Hosted by Rotary Club of Howrah, the event will run from 11am to 4pm.

More than 100 unique drinks from professional and amateur experts from across Australia will be available to taste, with a special feature being the wide range of fruit liqueurs made from cool climate fruits such as raspberries, cherries and quince.

Meads from Western Australia, a dragon fruit wine from Queensland, Grandad’s Tawny Plum wine from South Australia, a kiwi fruit and feijoa wine from New South Wales, citrus liqueur from Victoria and the wide range of exciting liqueurs, meads, fruit wines and ciders from Tasmania will be among the samples available to taste.

The highlight of the festival will be the local ciders, with many using cool climate fruits and techniques to achieve an award-winning product.

This will include ciders from Willie Smiths, Brady’s Lookout Cider, Red Sails, Frank’s Cider, Lost Pippin and Spreyton Ciders.

An unforgettable quince cider from Pagan Cider and ciders made from wild ferments from Simple Cider will also be available.

Fruit Wine Makers Tasmania will also present a series of short talks on how to easily make your own fruit wine from flavoursome processing-grade strawberries.

The relaxed, wharf-side atmosphere of the Bellerive Boardwalk will be enhanced by entertainment by the DayStar Duo.

Entry is free and food and coffee will be available.
