The most under rated wine region in the world, Canberra district wine is home to 140 vineyards covering an altitudinal range of 300 to 800 metres.
Following in Hume’s footsteps we will travel to a former gold mining town still rich in a soils, passions and produce, home to boutique wineries accumulating major Australian and international awards producing exquisite European style cool climate varieties.
All gold medal winners, visit trophy winemakers; Gourmet Traveller’s wine maker of the year and highly acclaimed Shiraz Viognier producer; a Pinot Noir ‘Bottle Shock’ winemaker who is taking out the New Zealand wine awards and we will visit the masterful ‘father of Australian Riesling’.
Our exploration will then lead us to a heritage listed 19th century village whose previous visitors included Henry Lawson, Banjo Paterson, Hamilton Hume and Ben Hall. Now a multi-awarded gourmand’s oasis. Proving gold still exists in this region!
