Red Wine, Canberra District

Although winemaking started 160 years ago in Canberra District, the viticulture of this region was revived in the 1970s. Situated in the wider area of southern New South Wales, surrounding Australian Capital Territory, the region is famous for their Shiraz and Rieslings due to their cool climate. Canberra District wine region was granted GI (Geographical Indication) in 1998 although the district was home to very few vineyards at that time. Today, wineries such as Clonakilla and Ravensworth have paved the way for putting Canberra District on the map as an up- and-coming wine region to watch in Australia.

Located about 150 kilometers inland from the Pacific Ocean, the vineyards are on lands of varying altitudes ranging from 300-800 meters which causes variation in temperature and soil types. The climate of Canberra District can be described as having a continental climate, which is characterized by big differences in temperature during the day and night. The region is capable of producing some of the nations finest Shiraz and Riesling.
