Canberra District Wineries in the Yass Valley Food & Wine

Our wine industry has been maturing a long time and today is famed for its distinctive quality. We now boast numerous James Halliday five star wineries among our more than 30 cellar doors.

In recent times we’ve landed Winemaker of the Year for Clonakilla’s Tim Kirk to add to several famed Jimmy Watson Trophies, international medals, export all over the world and selection for the wine lists of Australia’s top restaurants.

We like to think we do things a little differently, from our intimate tasting rooms ranging from a mid-1800s school house to today’s architectural wonders where you’ll often meet the winemakers and share their passion.

The range in temperature, vineyard elevations, soil types and the careful influence of the winemakers skill and individual character help to shape the refined, unique qualities of the final product.

Wet springs and dry autumns mean long slow ripening – cool climate wines with true depth of flavour in spicy and elegant reds and pure, subtle, complex and intense whites. We’re also producing different wines, from our ‘classics’ of Reisling, Cabernet, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir to Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Viognier and Tempranillo that are distinctive of our region.

Our wine combines perfectly with food, from the local produce and smokehouse creations of Poachers Pantry to creative wood-fired pizza at Four WindsFlint at Shaw Vineyard, Bistro at Surveyor’s Hill, delicious antipasti plates at Yarrh Wines, cheeses at Gallagher Wines and tasteful treats at the Epicurian Centre Gundaroo. A journey through our wine country is a true discovery, you’ll find yourself coming back for more. Lunch with our own blue mountains in the background at Brindabella Hills Winery.
