Posted on

Wine lovers, rejoice! It’s nearly time for the most exciting time in the Canberra Wine Region calendar – Harvest – and that means its nearly time for the Stomp Festival and Canberra Wine Week!

This year, celebrate with exclusive wine releases, live music, art, long lunches, behind-the-scenes tours, barrel room tastings, back vintages, demonstrations, chocolates, vineyard picnics, challenges, games and more across more than 20 wineries.

Here’s our pick of events you won’t want to miss – but there’s plenty more!

Meet the Maker, Live Music & Lunch at Pankhurst Wines

If you’ve never drunk in the stunning views of the Brindabella Mountains from Wallaroo’s Pankhurst Wines, this is the perfect excuse – celebrate their 36th Vintage as you meet the winemaker, taste a range of wines and enjoy a bite to eat.

Enjoy a delicious lunch from much-loved Belconnen restaurant Olive at Hawker while listening to guitarist Ben Coming (and no doubt sipping a glass of wine or three!) on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 April.

Tickets are $15 pp and include a special wine tasting and winemaker talk, focusing on their Italian wine varieties. Grab yours here.

Le Nez du Vin (The Nose of Wine)

Always wanted to know a little more about the wine you’re drinking? Shaw Wines’ ‘Le Nez du Vin’ Wine Sensory Class is a fun, informative event being held at the Murrumbateman cellar door and is a great way to learn about the many aromas found in wine.

Held in Shaw’s downstairs private cellar on Sunday 21 April, this class is designed with everyone in mind, from beginners to wine enthusiasts. A wine tasting of six wines is included.

Tickets are $65 per person, and limited to 16 people. Snap some up here.

Long Lunch at the Truffle Farm

The long lunch, crafted by The Truffle Farm’s Executive Chef Kanharith Kim, will include canapés to start, then a three-course menu complemented by Mount Majura wines. Hosted in the luxury barn at the Truffle Farm amongst a forest of 8,000 oak and hazelnut trees, it’s sure to be the perfect backdrop to a delicious long lunch.
