Brown Family Wine Group has announced that it’s Tasmanian vineyard Devil’s Corner will begin a significant expansion of its cellar door from late April 2021.
A popular stop along the Great Eastern Drive, the expansion will offer locals and travellers greater space and shelter to enjoy wine and food experiences overlooking the site’s spectacular views.
Renowned Tasmanian architects Cumulus Studio have been reengaged to ensure the originality and aesthetic of the current site remains while Launceston’s Anstie Constructions will manage the build.
Cumulus Studio Director Peter Walker said: “Cumulus are very excited to see the next stage of Devil’s Corner start construction. It is highly satisfying as designers to see a place that we helped to create become so used and loved by visitors and locals alike. With increasing awareness of the role buildings play in our environment, we felt it was important to continue many of the environmentally sustainable practices that we initiated at the beginning of the project – from material selection to prefabrication techniques.”
Devil’s Corner Marketing Manager Will Adkins added: “Calm autumns, wild winters or warm summers, we have no control over the weather. But with the new site expansion, we will be able to ensure visitors can experience the very best of Devil’s Corner no matter the season. New and improved shelter areas as well as more casual spaces will help accommodate the increasing number of consumers visiting the cellar door each year.”
A brand-new cellar door tasting area will be dedicated to immersive wine experiences while an impressive underground cellar will be the home of wine and food masterclasses, private functions and exclusive events.
Long-term food partners The Fishers and Tombolo will continue to feed locals and travellers with fresh seafood and wood fired pizzas, expanding the food offering from their new and improved on-site kitchens.
During construction ‘The Little Devil Cellar Door’ will act as a temporary pop-up for wine sales, open seven days a week from April to September 2021.
