Their range of Tasmanian produce and smallgoods are made for a discerning clientele. The sausages, kranskys, salamis and cooked-on-the-bone hams are prepared according to the German tradition using only quality meat. Commercial big-brands use chemicals to create flavours. Not so at Wursthaus. If it says that it is smoked, then it is smoked. They are even fussy about the timber for the smokers. It has to taste just right.

The shelves are stocked with handmade terrines and pates, organic beef, dressed quail and venison, as well as freshly-made cakes, biscuits and chocolates. Choose from Tasmanian white truffles, in season, and an extensive array of local small-producer cheeses, jams and chutneys.

Wursthaus Kitchen also offers pre-cooked dishes for reheating at home. It’s a complete service for people who want the best but do not have time to prepare it themselves.

As you would expect from someone whose background was in French wine sales, Peter Trioli has the experience to have chosen the finest local boutique wines and a selection of fine European wines for the shelves.

Come in and browse around. It’s a showcase of the food and drink that makes Tasmania special to lovers of fine food and wine.
