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.
Hickinbotham of Dromana was established in 1988 by Andrew and Terryn Hickinbotham. They set up on Manna Gum woodland overlooking the Dromana plains and the blue waters of Martha Bay. Andrew represents the 3rd, & Cal (behind the bar) and Jake the 4th, generation of the family famous for winemaking and wine education in Australia.
Our wines are grown, made and bottled onsite under the watchful eye of winemaker James Janda who strongly believes, as we do, wine is made in the vineyard.
Our Hix Microbrewery was established in 2006 with our brewer Cameron Turner brewing award winning beers including a Pilsener, Pale ale, Brown ale and Irish stout year round. Seasonally we produce various ales and special experimental beers for the beer lovers out there.
Our restaurant is paramount to our goals of serving quality produce which we source from many locales. Seafood dishes are a complement to our 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.
We are available daily from 11am to 5pm to spoil and indulge you with our lunches, wines and beers.
We look forward to welcoming you again and again as you become our regular guests.
