After not wanting to spend any money for lunch at the Larder in Lilydale because of poor business practices decided to go to the leaning church. Very pleasant and calming surroundings and very nice lunch. Support local Tassie wineries.

This little vineyard really packs some punch - they make the best of everything: their wines, location and staff. We had coffee and wine tasting and bought some pinot. The very unique descriptions on their wine tasting menu are worth the trip alone. The cafe/coffee...More

Leaning Church Vineyard guarantees a fresh, funky and fun experience every single time! Owners Sarah and Mark Hirst invite you to visit their patch of paradise in Tasmania's internationally-renowned Pipers River wine region - only 20 minutes from Launceston. Taste their award-winning cool-climate wines, sample single malt Tasmanian whisky, dine in their "Knives and Forks are Optional" Cafe, tour the historic "leaning" church, browse local art, and relax in the landscaped gardens overlooking the spectacular lily-covered lakes and endless rows of vines to towering Mt Arthur. We love our food. We love to immerse ourselves in home-grown fresh produce. And we love to feel our food. That's why our new menu at Leaning Church Vineyard is all about stimulating your senses. We want you to touch, see, smell, hear and taste - with or without knives and forks! We deliver simple but real, fresh and tasty food direct to your table - some straight from the rich soils of our vineyard where our vegie garden is ripening produce for your plates. And, of course, all matched to our award-winning Leaning Church Vineyard wines... Leaning Church Vineyard is open from 10am - 5pm seven days a week from September to mid May.
