What are some of the best things about Can­berra? The re­gion has such an in­cred­i­bly vi­brant bar, food and wine scene that it’s hard not to stum­ble into some of the best cof­fee, cafes and restau­rants in any sub­urb of Can­berra or the vil­lages around the dis­trict. They are re­ally well sup­ported by the lo­cals and vis­i­tors, and they are so sup­port­ive of lo­cal pro­duce and wines, it’s great for the whole Can­berra Dis­trict, and how we are per­ceived na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. Can­berra is the third most vis­itable city in the world for a rea­son. Come to Long

Rail Gully and the sur­round­ing winer­ies for a tast­ing and then head to Cle­men­tine in Yass for lunch or an amaz­ing din­ner and taste some of the lo­cal wines on the list. It’s one of my favourite restau­rants in the en­tire dis­trict and it’s only just up the road. What gives your win­ery its edge? Long Rail Gully vine­yard and win­ery is in an am­phithe­atre-like sur­round­ings, nes­tled around a six-acre trout-filled dam. The 400 mil­lion year old gran­ite soils and cli­mate pro­duce el­e­gant wines that are all truly sin­gle vine­yard and hand­made us­ing old and new tech­niques. This pro­duces el­e­gant, com­plex wines ex­press­ing the unique and spe­cial place in which they were grown.
