Stefano Lubiana Wines

Hobart & Around

Is this Tuscany? Sonoma Valley, maybe? No, it's Granton, about 20km north of Hobart and 16km southeast of New Norfolk, but the vibe is very international. The wines produced here – notably chardonnay, pinot gris and pinot noir – are first rate, but the rustic, river-view Italian osteria (restaurant) is what many come here for (mains $26 to $32, open noon to 2.30pm Thursday to Sunday).
