We’ve found a little Aussie gem.
Home to some of Australia’s award-winning wine makers, Murrumbateman is no longer Canberra’s hidden gem but instead the ultimate weekend destination for food and wine lovers.
With such a wide variety of boutique cellar doors, vineyards and rustic restaurants on offer, we’ve compiled our top picks in Canberra’s cool climate wine region.
1. Four Winds Vineyard
It may be a micro-winery but it definitely packs a punch! Attracting global kudos for the recent redesign of its wine labels and named the supreme champion at the 2017 Drinks International Wine Design Challenge. It’s no wonder Four Winds Vineyard is first on our list.
