Glamping, Farm to Plate and Wine Tasting Good Times in the Capital This Autumn

February 26, 2019 Destination Global No Comments

With Canberra firmly cementing its presence in the Australian and global wine scene, we’re now making way for fresh winemakers and innovators in the field.And in no season does the Canberra district sparkle more than during its harvest season over autumn. With more than 30 wineries within 35 minutes’ drive of the city, the Canberra region wine scene is ripe for exploring.

Meet the new wave of Canberra wine events, vineyards and cellar doors.

Four Winds Vineyard: Come for the wine, stay for the wood fired pizza. Relax in this vineyard, with Sarah Collingwood, Australian Women in Wine Owner/Operator of the Year 2017, at the helm. Pick up a bottle for the art lover in your life, with each bottle’s label playing on the theme of ‘wind’. Open 10am – 4pm Thursday to Monday, Murrumbateman.

Brindabella Hills: Set against the stunning vistas of the Brindabella Hills, this winery offers up sensational cool climate wines with beautiful views to match. Open 10am – 5pm Saturday to Sunday, Hall.

Canberra District Wine Week: Whether you think you know all there is to know about Canberra Wines, or you’ve never ventured out into the region, this year’s Canberra District Wine Week will bring you some surprising and delightful experiences. The Festival will be the perfect excuse to grab your friends and blend your own wine event, enjoy a gallery launch and exhibition, meet wine makers and tour their vineyards, experience vertical wine tastings, enjoy live music in the vines, go on a secret wine tour and more. 5-14 April.

Canberra District Wine Week Tasting Festival: Canberra wines come to the city in this launch event for wine week. It’s a chance to sample wines from a cross section of the Canberra district in NewActon – there will be 50 wines to try. Entry is $30 on the day and you will receive a reusable glass to take home. From 2-6pm on 30 March.

Hot Dub Time Machine: Take one part the hottest musical acts (think The Presets and Hayden James), one part sensational food and wine offerings at the picturesque Lake George Winery and you’ve got yourself the best party ever. 13 April.

Cellar Door: Can’t get out to explore the region’s ‘liquid geography’? Find this wine market at the Nishi building (home to Ovolo Nishi hotel) Grand Stair, where each weekend different local district wineries will set up shop to sell their (delicious) wares. 3-6pm Saturdays, NewActon.
Contentious Character: Contentious Character are bringing their farm to plate philosophy to the table by incorporating their wines with seriously good food. Contentious Character builds on the Lambert Estate’s reputation for award-winning boutique wines. The first plantings were made in 1990, and the 20 acre vineyard became known for producing complex wines, with distinctive ‘old-world’ character with ‘new-world’ elegance. Open 10am-5pm Wednesday – Sunday, Wamboin (open until 9pm on Fridays).

Naked Cubby Collective: Mount Majura Vineyard welcomes you to ‘sip wine and sleep amongst the vines’ with two bespoke glamping tents. Edgar, the first of the two cubbies to call this vineyard home, summons cosy autumn vibes with a touch of luxury, paired with panoramic views of the vineyard. Frank, the latest addition to the glamping family, is nestled in a tranquil spot, surrounded by vines, a fruit orchard and The Truffle Farm. Complete your stay with a hamper of local Three Mills Bakery goodies, or with a picnic courtesy of Schmicnics and a wine tasting at the Cellar Door. Open year round, Mount Majura.
