Devote your entire weekend to the Canberra region and you won't be disappointed, it is full of boutique wineries with passionate winemakers producing exciting wines. There are many clusters of wineries and vineyards with driving distances of 20 to 45 minutes between them. The districts Chardonnay and Riesling and superb but do try one of the red varieties are they are starting to make waves.

The Kamberra Wine Tourism Complex is located on Northbourne Avenue in Canberra City. The complex has a vineyard, winery, restaurant and function facilities. Pialligo Estate makes award winning wines and you can lunch with a view to Parliament House.

Lake George

The first stop for any traveller coming from Sydney, the wineries here are located just north of Lake George. Lerida Estate is a beautiful winery to happen upon with a strong French influence. Your next stop should be Madew Wines and their celebrated restaurant ‘grapefoodwine'.

Murrumbateman & Yass

Gundaroo is on the road to Murrumbateman as is a food lovers Mecca. From fine dining to pub meals to gourmet wood fired pizza it is no wonder weekends often book out. After you have satisfied your hunger jump back on the wine trails as there is still much to see. Murrumbateman offers a fantastic array of accommodation as does Yass which is just a short, scenic drive away.


On your way to Hall make sure you stop in at the Poachers Pantry which is a cafe and produce store with its own smokehouse. The Hall wineries are located on the west side of the Barton Highway with many wineries and cellar doors located amongst the Brindabella Hills.


To the east you will find a cluster of wineries around Wamboin and Bugendore. Many of these wineries have exceptional cellar doors and cafes which views spreading across the hills. In the area are self contained cabins, resorts and B&Bs.
