A Canberra weekend for wine lovers

  • Written by Visit Canberra
Home to 140 vineyards and more than 30 cellar doors, many with national or international accolades, the Canberra District wine region has quickly joined the ranks of the world’s best producers of wine. Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or looking to try something new, this suggested weekend itinerary will be more than enough time to fall in love with our regional wines.

Spending the morning walking around the markets is sure to work up an appetite, so why not have lunch at the Parlour Wine Room in NewActon? Offering a selection of local and international boutique wines, this eatery serves innovative dishes like popcorn squid legs with wheat berries, aioli and green salad, and sweet treats like strawberry and mint Eton mess.

Ensconced within the leafy suburb of Manuka, this café masters the art of elegant dishes made with seasonal produce. With creations like Caprese omelette and truffled asparagus baguette, you’ll be nothing short of options at Urban Pantry. Also find artisan-made organic sourdough by Sonoma in-store, delivered straight to the café daily.

Nearby, overlooking the shores of Lake George, the small boutique Lake George Winery is well known for its award winning wines such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot and Botrytis Semillon. Lake George Winery is one of the oldest vineyards in the region and maintains its original beauty.
