Tazmania's relevance as a wine producing region has increased considerably in the last decade. This is because during that time its wine production has increased by 300%. Tazmania is a state with a predominantly temperate climate, with warm autumn days and cool nights. This helps the grapes to ripen more slowly on the vine. Due to global warming, some red grape varieties can now be grown. Among them are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz. On the other hand, the most cultivated white grapes are Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
