Today we are featuring Bream Creek Farmers Market stallholder, and local resident, Alastair Christie of Cape Bernier Vineyard.

Cape Bernier is located on the slopes of Bream Creek overlooking Marion Bay, and if you’re looking to reduce food miles, you couldn’t get much closer to the Farmers Market itself!

Cape Bernier Vineyard has won a swag of awards over the recent years and is an extremely popular stall at the Market.  Read on for some great insider info into this gorgeous vineyard and find out why Alastair loves to be involved in the Bream Creek Farmers Market…

Has anything especially funny ever happened to you at a market? 

Markets and Shows are usually entertaining and busy, convivial and friendly, and amusing without being especially funny…

Meeting people, talking about what we do and developing an understanding of our wines and what makes them special.

Where else are your products available? 

Specialty outlets in Tasmania (Hobart and Launceston mainly), Melbourne and Sydney.  These include restaurants and specialist bottle shops.  Vines and Designs at Copping is a local example.  We also operate a Cellar Door at the Vineyard and a website, so our wines are available through these channels.

Please note that the Vineyard and Cellar Door are open “By Appointment” so if you would like to visit, please call to ensure someone will be on-site!  We have a small operation and can’t be here all the time.  Alternatively our wines are available at Vines and Designs in Copping (on the Arthur Highway at the Bream Creek turn-off).
