The story of the Canberra wine region is one of continuing surprise and triumph, however, despite 160 years of winemaking, 140 vineyards, and more than 33 wineries all within a 35-minute drive from Canberra, many of the cool-climate gems in the capital region were once only known to wine connoisseurs.
Recent times have seen the winemaking world shift and today the reputation of the shiraz, chardonnays, pinots, rieslings, and cabernets of this altitudinal range of soil temperatures and types has become widespread.
The Canberra Wine House, nestled inside The Dickson Tradies [map], continues the Canberra institution's passion and support for the local region - a core focus that began years ago with the decision to exclusively serve Canberra region cool-climate wines across every bar and restaurant within the venues.
The uniqueness and warmth of our Canberra experience isn't confined to the intimacy of the physical space, either, with resident experts always on-hand to offer a complimentary tasting and share their impressive breadth of knowledge on the amazing variety of local finds with would-be connoisseurs and passers-by alike.
Of course, a true wine moment is often complemented by the perfect serve of matching fare, and The Canberra Wine House offers an accompanying menu of freshly-prepared platters heaped with all-local cheeses, chocolates, fruits, meats, and olives delightfully fit for one, two, or more.
There's no need for the experience to end when the complimentary tasting has finished or when the last award-winning drop from a bottle or single glass has hit the tongue, with a comprehensive selection of takeaway bottles available for purchase and a mini-market stocked with incredible local products, including books, handcrafted accessories, and locally-sourced chocolates, chutneys, jams, nuts, olives, sauces, and more.
Also perfect for private gatherings, The Canberra Wine House is available for hire for special events and functions and can be tailored to nearly any requirement by the experienced team at Events At The Tradies.
The Canberra Wine House's intimately-refined setting encourages a celebration of our region's internationally-renowned drops. With complimentary tastings, a magnificent wine bar, a tapas menu comprised of entirely local produce, and competitively-priced takeaway bottle purchases, The Canberra Wine House truly is Canberra wine's extraordinary new home.
