Small quantities of wine are produced from grapes grown in our vineyards. Most of the vines are 30+ years old. All are hand-pruned and the grapes hand-picked. Table and dessert wines are made by Brian Sinclair at Brindabella Hills Winery, one kilometre down the road, and our sparkling wines by Greg Gallagher up the road to Murrumbateman.
The wines are well made, reasonably priced, and have very low carbon mileage. They express the place and the seasons. They are true locals, available at the cellar door, through this site, and at a few restaurants and retail outlets around Canberra.
Our cellar door is open normal hours during COVID-19 restrictions but for seated tastings only (no standing tastings at the bar). We expect this rule to change from 17 March 2021, pending final advice from the NSW Government.
Tastings at our cellar door had been free of charge; however, the requirement for seated tastings has led us to trial a new tasting policy from late January 2021: free tastings are limited to four wines, and there is a $5 refundable tasting fee for extended tastings.
Again, because of the rule on seated tastings, we can no longer accommodate larger tasting groups (beyond eight people). If standing tastings are allowed from mid-March, we can then accommodate larger groups.
We recommend that patrons for wine tasting only (excluding dining) make a booking and preferably come before 12 or after 3 when there are fewer diners in our space and you can taste with greater comfort.
More wines (varieties, vintages) are available if you visit our cellar door, including some great specials.
