The state government will spend $1.2 million to drive a quadrupling of the wine industry in Tasmania.
The investment was unveiled by Premier Lara Giddings during here state of the state address to Parliament delivered a short time ago.
The 40-minute speech setting the government's agenda for the year, concentrated on Tasmania's economic strengths including the dairy and wine industries and supporting the state's most vulnerable.
The vineyard and orchard expansion program aims to generate an extra 200 hectares of vines this year.
``It will also generate an estimated $10 million in private investment and create more than 370 jobs plus a further 100 shorter-term planting positions,'' Ms Giddings said.
Ms Giddings used the speech to also reveal:
The terms of reference for the inquiry into January's devastating bushfires
*A one-stop shop for housing support from government and not-for-profit agencies
*An extra $7 million for community sector pay rises
*No public servant would be made forcibly redundant
*New concessions for multiple sclerosis sufferers
Ms Giddings challenged State Opposition Leader Will Hodgman to match the government's level of policy detail.
Mr Hodgman and Greens Leader Nick McKim will get their chance to respond tomorrow.
