climate The Huon Valley Wine REgion includes the southern section of the East Coast of Tasmania, from between Tribunna and Lauderdale. The beautiful Huon Valley, with its maze of hills and valleys intertwined with fingers of ocean, produces surprisingly rich Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. There is a range of wonderful towns and villages in the region including: Port Huon, Ranleagh, Huonville, Cradoc, Galaziers Bay, Petchys Bay, Gardners Bay. Although close to the 50th parallel at which wine-making is supposed to be very difficult, the region produces cool climate grapes that have a depth of unique flavours and local character. The grapes ripen slowly and harvest time is often delayed until April and May. However, with careful site selection close to the river estuaries most vineyards are away from the frosts and winds. The climate of the Huon Valley Region is quite similar to many of Europe's famous wine areas.. The best performing varieties are the Pinots, Chardonnays and Rieslings. The major rural industries of the Huon region are tourism, agriculture, aquaculture and forestry.This region has produced many award-wining wines and the best-known wineries are: Elsewhere, No Regrets, Two Bud Spur and Panorama Vineyards. For lunch featuring local Tasmanian fresh foods visit Home Hill Winery that has beautifully mountain views. THe forst winery in the area was Hartzview Vineyard that started in1988. Elsewhere vineyard was established in 1984 and Home Hills in 1993.
