If you're touring through Relbia on the way to or after visiting Evandale, don't miss Sharmans Wines. these are some of the best cool climate Tasmanian wines we have tasted and are available right from the Sharmans cellar door. The Pinot Noir is a favourite of ours and a local's tip is to grab a cheese platter while there and enjoy relaxing amongst the vines.
