The Canberra Wine Tour is a terrific full day tour, not only because of the magnificent wines you’ll taste and have the opportunity to buy, at a raft of cellar doors, but also for the beautiful countryside through Canberra’s wine region. These are real rural landscapes of Australia and many of our international visitors are often blown away with the beauty.
With Shiraz the flagship for reds and Riesling the flagship for whites in the Cool Climate Wine Region, as well as a multitude of other varieties; viognier, pinot noir, and cabernet, distinguished wine aficionados and novices alike are sure to find something to their taste.
