Luxury accommodation, fine dining and premium wine. Wine, dine and … get a room. Mona, the Museum of Old and New Art, is Australia’s largest privately owned gallery and museum. Showcasing the diverse collection of its owner, Tasmanian gambler David Walsh, the collection ranges from ancient Egyptian funerary objects to modernist masterpieces and international contemporary art. Since opening in 2011, visitors have been drawn to Mona’s picturesque site on the banks of the River Derwent, which also features luxury accommodation, a restaurant, vineyard and winery – amongst other things.
At 11:30 am, Moorilla’s wine ambassador will take you on a private behind-the-scenes tour of the winery and vineyard. You’ll taste the wine as it is being made, following the trail of grapes as they are handpicked, crushed, pressed, fermented and matured. You’ll also get all the goss about Moorilla, David Walsh and Claudio Alcorso, who planted Moorilla’s first vines. Tour includes a tailored tasting of Moorilla’s Praxis and Muse Series in the fancy underground Barrel Room. You’ll also receive a complimentary bottle of our most celebrated wine, the Muse Pinot noir to take home.
Then, enjoy a two course lunch at The Source Restaurant, with matched wines from Moorilla’s benchmark Cloth Label and Muse Series. Lunch also comes with stunning views of the Moorilla vineyard, Mount Wellington and the River.
Spend the night right next to the museum in one of Mona’s luxury pavilions and explore your in-room private wine cellar: a complimentary bottle of Moorilla’s Vintage Sparkling awaits your arrival. Breakfast at The Source Restaurant is included, as is a hosted introduction to Mona and plenty of time to explore the galleries any time during your stay (museum entry and a sample of five craft beers from Mona’s microbrewery, Moo Brew are included in your package).
