Stoney Rise Rises Above The Aussie Cellar Door

January 14, 2021 Beverage No Comments Email Email

Located in lutruwita (Tasmania) on the kanamaluka (River Tamar), Stoney Rise has given birth to the
Cellar Door of the future – part Cellar Door, part Bar, part Wine Store.The venue sits upon a crest overlooking lawns towards the kanamaluka, boasts a stellar international and local wine list alongside the family-owned Estate wines; Stoney Rise, Holyman and No Clothes.

Wines from the family’s personal cellar including museum releases sit proudly on the wine list which features German Rieslings, Burgundy, Chablis and Champagne as well as a good selection of nonalcoholic drinks and, of course, a few beers.

“We wanted to surprise people with the fact it wasn’t just a run of the mill Cellar Door – only serving our own wine. It’s really whatever you want it to be,” says owner and winemaker, Joe Holyman.

“We want visitors tasting our wines alongside some of our favourites from around the world. In that
sense, we’re welcoming you into your favourite new wine bar rather than expected Cellar Door.”

Stoney Rise like “firsts”, but don’t brag about them. They were one of the first vineyards in Australia
to grow Grüner Veltliner (2004), stopped spraying with herbicides and adopted a sustainable approach more than 10 years ago, and are the only producer in Tasmania making Trousseau.
Owners, Joe and Lou Holyman, take pride in their 16-hectare estate and region, with the wines an
honest expression of their vineyards, the seasons, and their passion for winemaking which extends to wine drinking and wine drinking spaces.

Designed by renowned local Tasmanian architects Cumulus Studio, the Cellar Door incorporates an
outdoor courtyard with open fire, lawns overlooking the vineyard, and sophisticated cosy seating for guests to taste and experience the wines.

Guests can try 4 x 40ml pours of any of the eight wines on offer for $15; or a $25 flight tasting two
wines alongside another Australian producer and an import.

The snack menu not only supports local producers (Robbins Island Wagyu Bresaola, Fork it Farm
Terrines and Pork Pies, local organic greens and radishes), but also overseas favourites, including La
Belle-iloise sardines from Brittany. A home-made French onion dip has already become legendary,
served with homemade olive oil crisp bread and interstate food and wine collabs are also on the radar for 2021.

Open five days a week from 10am to 5pm, the Stoney Rise Cellar Door, Bar and Wine Store is just 25 minutes from Launceston and 40 minutes from the local airport.
