Devil’s Corner Cellar Door Expansion
11 Apr 2021
Devil’s Corner will begin a significant expansion on the award-winning cellar door in late April 2021. This cellar door has become a popular stop along the Great Eastern Drive, we were engaged in the first stage of devolvement and were thrilled to see how well-received the project was with visitors, especially with the inclusion of a lookout tower.
We have been reengaged to ensure the originality and aesthetic of the current site remains, the expansion will offer all visitors a year-round destination with greater space and shelter to enjoy while also enhancing the wine and dining experiences.
Our team are extremely proud of the new project and are looking forward to continuing the environmentally-conscious strategies put in place from the beginning. Peter Walker explains “Cumulus are very excited to see the next stage of Devil’s Corner start construction. It is highly satisfying as designers to see a place that we helped to create become so used and loved by visitors and locals alike. With increasing awareness of the role buildings play in our environment, we felt it was important to continue many of the environmentally sustainable practices that we initiated at the beginning of the project – from material selection to prefabrication techniques.”
In its wild corner of Tasmania, the Devil’s Corner team has learned not to fight the elements but to harness them to make the highest quality cool climate wines.Devil’s Corner Marketing Manager Will Adkins says the expansion will take the same approach, catering for all seasons, “Calm autumns, wild winters or warm summers, we have no control over the weather.
But with the new site expansion, we will be able to ensure visitors can experience the very best of Devil’s Corner no matter the season. New and improved shelter areas, as well as more casual spaces, will help accommodate the increasing number of consumers visiting the cellar door each year.”
The expansion includes a new tasting area which is dedicated to immersive wine experiences while an impressive underground cellar will be the home of wine and food masterclasses, private functions, and exclusive events.
Long-term food partners The Fishers and Tombolo will continue to feed locals and travellers with fresh seafood and wood-fired pizzas, expanding the food offering from their new and improved on-site kitchens. During construction ‘The Little Devil Cellar Door’ will act as a temporary pop-up for wine sales, open 7 days a week from April to September 2021.
The Devil’s Corner site expansion will continue to deliver greater tourism to the east coast region and along the Great Eastern Drive.
