Winter in Sheffield Tasmania is still approaching – yet it continues to be fairly mild. We have already started the fires at the guesthouse, as it is getting a bit chilly overnight, but it’s nice to snuggle under a doona.

I love winter and Tassie is great to visit in the winter season. There are so many things to do in the North West of Tasmania and staying at Glencoe is convenient, so you only have to unpack once.

If you love good food and wine, then let your tastebuds have their own adventure along the ‘Cradle to Coast’ tasting trail.

Glencoe B&B is situated in the middle of the tasting trail…so it couldn’t be more convenient.

Discover the award-winning produce of Tasmania’s North West on the Tasting Trail Cradle to Coast, which takes in some of the region’s best cellar doors, farm stalls and artisan cafes.

The Tasting Trail is a local food trail designed to assist you in discovering all the finest produce that Tasmania’s beautiful, bountiful Cradle Coast region has to offer.

Spanning from sweets, fresh produce, fine wines, food platters and much more, the trail will guide you to award-winning cellar doors, farm stalls, shops and food festivals.

There really is something for everyone during winter in Sheffield Tasmania! There are 43 producers on the trail that take you through stunning scenery and small town charm just to sweeten the deal even further.

Devise your very own tasting trail and hit the road or take a personalised fully guided tour with one of the local tour operators.

A Tasting Trail Cradle to Coast Tour allows you to select the producers you are most interested in, then let the tour guides take care of the rest.

They will create an itinerary to suit your desires (taking into consideration opening times and driving routes).

Maybe spend the morning sampling hazelnuts, freshly roasted coffee, and handcrafted chocolates before moving on to a lazy farm lunch or even an afternoon tasting beer, wine or spirits.

The tour will pick you up from one of the region’s main towns that includes Sheffield – just down the road from Glencoe B&B.

If you want to indulge and not worry about driving, then transport to Sheffield can easily be arranged.

The Tasting Trail is a must-do for any food and wine lover amidst beautiful natural scenery that just gets even better when it’s winter in Sheffield Tasmania.
