Visit the Tasmanian Gourmet Sauce Company
A visit to the Tasmanian Gourmet Sauce company is an experience not to be missed, whether individually or as part of a group. Either way, you will be made to feel special in our unique production, garden and nursery environment.
Our Tasting Room is the focal point of your visit to us. You will be guided through complimentary tastings of our products and given recipe suggestions to try when back home. Our products come in many different sizes from 28g single serve to 4.4kg food service and in a range of gift packs, crates and hampers. Something to suit everyone is what we strive for.
Having done the tastings, watch the staff in action through the glass panel- you may well pick up a few cooking tips. Every day the aromas are different depending on what is being cooked. All viewers love ‘Big Bertha’, an 80L cooker which produces our renowned chutneys.
For garden lovers, the garden is a must. Thirty five years ago, it was simply wind swept paddocks and 4 remaining trees. Staff in the tasting room will give you self- guiding notes and the garden will be yours to enjoy as you read about its’ fascinating history.
The nursery is as a sight in itself- an endless array of topiary in a myriad of shapes and sizes. These are grown to size, then lifted and sold.
You will also see the Potager, a traditional organic vegetable garden. Most of the vegetables are heirloom varieties with many edible flowers and espaliered fruit trees.
Should you wish to see some real action, for groups of 20 or more, we offer cooking demonstrations with tastings as we go. Come and see some great uses for our fresh Tasmanian products and take home some ideas for you to cook at home yourself. Always a huge hit with groups!
Allow 1.5 Hour
Your tasting tables will be set up and staff will welcome you and settle you in for an experience to remember. The inner chef in you will be inspired to create some of our healthy recipe options using our products. From chilli lovers to those with a sweet tooth, we have products to suit every palate.
Allow minimum of 30 minutes
The garden at Ericvale has been rather like the phoenix over the past 35 years, rising from wind swept treeless paddock to what you see today. We will share the fascinating history with you as we wander through formal and informal spaces overlooking the Eastern Highlands and South Esk River.
Allow minimum of 30 minutes
