You might think Devil’s Corner is all about the wine. Probably, on most occasions, it is! But after a gin tasting at The Farm Shed East Coast Wine Centre in Bicheno, we were mindful of driving to Hobart under the legal limit. So we stopped at the cellar door for a teetotaler’s lunch.

There’s a prominent pink marker about half-way between Swansea and Bicheno on Tasmania’s east coast. That’s your cue to exit the Tasman Highway and visit Devil’s Corner winery complex.

The views of Moulting Lagoon and The Hazards mountain range have always been special. But now the region has a lookout befitting the attraction; minus the challenge of negotiating a hectic roadside parking bay.

Once we’d snapped all the angles from the lookout, we strolled downhill to the cellar door. The complex comes complete with two separate dining establishments and outdoor seating.

I chose the Sunny Garcia wood-fired pizza: ham, pineapple, basil and mozzarella. Can you believe… not everyone likes pineapple on their pizza? I do like a good Hawaiian, and I did enjoy this version. I’m planning to have the five cheese pizza next time. Let’s face it, too much Tasmanian cheese is never enough.

You probably won’t be shocked to hear Gavin opted for seafood. When you can almost touch the source from your table, why would you not choose the seafood?

The chilli coconut mussels were definitely a winner for lunch on the sunny east coast of Tasmania. We did have one tiny little taste of Devil’s Corner wine with said seafood, and it was smashing as always. The driver was still under the limit though, promise!
