A RocKwiz-style quiz about wine will mark the beginning of a major new festival designed to showcase the Tamar Valley's unique range of cellar doors.
The opening night of Vintage: Tamar 2020 will take place on Friday, May 29 at the Queen Victoria Museum in Inveresk.
Dubbed A Night at the Museum, the quiz night will be hosted by renowned wine educator Curly Haslam-Coates.

"The quiz night is about understanding the age old practice of wine," Tamar Valley Wine Route chairperson and Brook Eden Vineyard owner Annette Ferraro said.
"We're very lucky to have Curly Haslam-Coates, who is an accredited educator in all things wine. She's managed in the last five years or so, to educate most of the sommeliers at the top restaurants and anyone who's working in the wine industry."
"She really knows her stuff."
Ten winemakers will be at the event with a selection of rare museum wines on offer.
"We're also inviting people to wear clothing that you can recognise as a character in the movie Night at the Museum," Ms Ferraro said.
"There'll be a supper provided and people will be able to go and taste the wines, buy a glass, go to a cocktail table, have some beautiful food and watch the quiz."
Jazz trio The Fergusons will play at the event, which has been supported by City of Launceston council.
