Hickinbotham of Dromana



Hickinbotham of Dromana is a famous winery producing wines with minimal preservatives, seasonal craft beers, jams, fresh baked bread and garden produce - a feature of the café menu.

Wines are grown, made and bottled onsite under the watchful eye of winemaker James Janda who strongly believes wine is made in the vineyard.


Hickinbotham of Dromana is all about great wine and beer, fresh local food and a relaxed atmosphere.  With our cobbled brick floor, warm open fireplace, live music, rustic surrounds and stunning views, relaxation comes easily.

The Hix Microbrewery was established in 2006 with brewer Cameron Turner brewing award winning beers including a Pilsener, Pale ale, Brown ale and Irish stout year round.    The restaurant serves quality produce sourced from many locales and the seafood dishes are a complement to the white wines and lighter beers, whilst game meats from local and Tasmanian producers suit not only the darker wines and ales, but the rustic environment that is Hickinbotham. Open daily from 11am to 5pm.
