International accolade for Canberra wine region
Last year Lonely Planet awarded Canberra as the third top city to visit in the world. This year, Canberra Region is once again in the spot-light making Lonely Planet’s Wine Trails: Australia and New Zealand.
The region was picked for boasting world-class wines, Instagram-worthy vineyards and cellar-doors that are a foodie’s-haven full of delicious delights and liquid tastings to tantalise even the most discerning taste buds.
Home to over 140 vineyards and more than 30 cellar doors within a 35 mins drive of Canberra, it’s easy to understand Lonely Planet’s love with the region’s wines.
The Lonely Planet publication, Wine Trails: Australia and New Zealand, is designed as a companion to 40 weekends of wine tasting across the two countries.
Highlighted in the publication is Clonakilla’s ground-breaking Shiraz and signature Viognier, Helm Wine’s Rieslings and Mt Majura’s exuberance and willingness to move into the Spanish Tempranillo varietal.
Wine Trails: Australia and New Zealand also includes where to stay and eat, and a ‘what to do’ section enhancing the Canberra region’s growing reputation as a destination to explore and firmly placing the region on the international spotlight.
