Fancy a Tassie wine tasting extravaganza, but can't find the time (or cash) to make the trip? How about a quick hop over to Darlinghurst instead?

If you can get there with $60 to spare on Saturday, August 12, you'll be living the Apple Isle dream. That's because one-day wine festival Vin Diemen is coming back to Sydney for a third year.

Your ticket will get you a take-home wine glass and access to the creations of a whole slew of Tasmanian winemakers, who are crossing the strait to show us what their island is made of. Expect to sample some of the best Pinot Noir in the nation, alongside top-shelf Chardonnay, Riesling and sparkling — cold climate varieties get a better go in Tassie than nearly anywhere else in Oz.

And giving the wines the respect they deserve will be a bunch of tasty Tasmanian morsels, including cheeses noms from Bruny Island Cheese. To top it off, you'll also be able to sample some Tassie spirits and Willie Smith's Organic Cider. Tickets are $50 early bird and $60 general admission, and go on sale on June 13.
