Enjoy luxury treatment at boutique winery Contentious Character, with a premium wine tasting held by the winemaker himself. You'll both receive a consultation on your tastes before sampling up to four fine wines. Take home two bottles of your choice or open them over a three course lunch afterwards!
Spoil the wine lover in your life with a luxury experience they'll never forget! This visit to boutique winery Contentious Character, set in the hills of Wamboin and located just 30km east of Canberra, is directed by the winemaker himself. Jeremy will take you on a special private tour of the winemaking facility and vineyard, where you'll learn how their wines are made from grape to bottle. Next, you'll each receive a consultation on your tastes and interests before he brings out some of the best bottles in the cellar! From aged wines to more recent vintages, choose from seven varieties – riesling, chardonnay, pinot gris, pinot noir, shiraz, merlot and cabernet. After sampling up to four fine wines each, you'll select two of your favourite bottles collectively. Take them home to be opened on a special occasion or instead enjoy them over a delicious three course lunch afterwards.
Sit down for a leisurely lunch overlooking the vines, indulging in contemporary Australian dishes blended with traditional Italian flair. The menu changes regularly to reflect the freshest, seasonal produce sourced from regional suppliers. Two or more choices are available for each course.
If Jeremy, their winemaker, is unavailable you will be guided by one of the four owners – all in-house experts.
