Session 21 - Canberra District

Canberra, capital of the nation. Think Canberra and Parliament House, National Gallery, the Australian War Memorial and Lake Burley Griffin might come to mind. Or if you're like us, you might think of the more than 30 wineries within a 40 minute drive. What's more, there's fascinating diversity in this cool climate wine district - due to geology, geography, temperature and the influence of skilled winemakers who have chosen this location to make some of Australia's most lauded wines.

Thirty lucky people have secured a place at our tasting at 6pm on Tuesday 19th March at Era Bistro where Jennie Mooney of Capital Wines (@CapitalWines) will lead us on an exploration of key varieties and styles from this exciting region.
