Canberra District Wine Harvest Festival. With Wine Giveaway!!!

By Jazz - 5 April 2013 18

Wine harvest festival

This weekend sees the annual Canberra District Wine Harvest Festival on again. 26 local wineries are offering a variety of tasting adventures, entertainment (music & artwork), delicious food and the opportunity for a great day (or days) out in the country.

Its a great opportunity to meet some of the makers of the Canberra District’s nationally and internationally recognised wines at their own cellar door, enjoy guided tours of vineyards by their owners, and taste the latest wines from a region renowned for its diversity of geography and variety. Whats more if you grab your Festival Passport and have it stamped at three participating wineries to go into the draw to win one of three Canberra District mixed dozens.

If you cant wait that long, tell us about your favorite Canberra district winery or wine harvest memory, and why in the comments below to go in the draw for one of several 3 packs of canberra district wines. RiotACT premium members will go in the draw twice making it an even more compelling reason to upgrade your account..

Relax and celebrate the new vintage with cool climate wines, entertainment and great food.

What’s Your opinion?

Thank you!

With theatre tickets and wine, I have already more than won back my premium sub for the year. Unless the wine is consumed before I liberate it…

(Please keep an eye on it Jazz. Johnboy and particularly Bacchus strike me as unreliable.)

Has this happened yet? My cornflakes were dry this morning, so I live in hope.

Yarrh wines for mine. Nice wine, nice people and an interesting building in a beautiful location on top of a hill looking down the valley across the vines. I had a very happy and pleasant couple of hours there on my birthday last year courtesy of Mrs LSWCHP.

I’d recommend a trip out there to anybody who likes the local drops.

I’d like to be a winning winer but I haven’t been to any local wineries and am too honest to make stuff up…
I know the Oaks Estate bottlo sells grappa when it’s in season 🙂

Lark Hill Winery who gave myself and some visitors a tour of their winery and explained what a tough life it is!

One of the best wineries I have been to was Jeir Creek as part of a wine tour a few years ago (Bucks party)

I might be because it was the 3rd or 4th stop 🙂 but their grazing platters were amazing and they had the best muscat.

I think we went to an olive oil plantation too after that, but everything is a bit sketchy by that stage of the day.

My favourite memory is now of yesterday and Granitevale winery. Sitting listening to wonderful folk music, with table service tastings, each one carefully explained by the staff member. And the delicious Pink Ice desert Wine, made like an Ice bock. Definitely my new favourite Canberra winery and worth a visit for the wines and the atmosphere.

I recently went to Mount Majura winery for a tasting session, it was great! I really like most of their reds and find it difficult to pick a favourite. I had never tried the Graciano before but enjoyed it quite a lot.

Usually my favourite memories are red related but the ‘Auslese’ at Clonakilla was great last year and quite rare. I’m pumped for the Helm masterclass tomorrow.

Surveyors Hill.

I always feel welcome there and the reds are worth a return visit.

If sitting down for lunch, try the duck.

I gave a poetry reading once at Mount Majura winery, in a room with giant vats. The smell of wine permeated the air and I’m absolutely sure that’s how the wine stain got on my book…
