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.
