Sydney-siders can look forward to experiencing the best of Tasmania at this year’s VIN Diemen festival, which will arrive in the heart of the city on Saturday 10 August at Cell Block Theatre, Darlinghurst.

VIN Diemen has thrilled wine lovers from around Melbourne and Sydney for the past four years, showcasing the unparalleled quality of Tasmania’s produce. This year features an extended line-up of the island’s leading vintners and producers.
