A TASTE OF YASS VALLEY
SO CLOSE TO CANBERRA, THE YASS VALLEY PRESENTS AN ARRAY OF WINERIES AND FINE CULINARY EXPERIENCES IN A PRISTINE, REGIONAL SETTING.
The Yass Valley region offers a relaxing country escape within a short distance of Canberra. Local food and wine producers have fashioned a delectable mix of offerings; your biggest decision will be where to begin your culinary adventure.
From high-profile, award-winning restaurants and wineries to modest hidden gems, Yass Valley’s food and wine community is connected by down-to-earth producers and knowledgeable makers. Riesling and shiraz are popular choices in this cool climate wine region, as well as lighter reds such as pinot noir and sangiovese.
With the majority of the region’s wineries within the surrounds of Murrumbateman village, this is a great location to base your stay. With the new Abode Murrumbateman and B&Bs aplenty, there are accommodation options for all your needs. If you’d prefer something with character, perhaps a night in a refurbished train carriage in Wallaroo is more your style. With various wineries and B&B options, Wallaroo is a great location, also sharing its boundary with the ACT. For a touch of luxury after a day sampling the region’s finest, retreat to the historical village of Gundaroo. Here you will find five-star villa-style accommodation with award-winning country dining.
Yass Valley’s winemaking successes are celebrated through annual events – the Harvest Festival is celebrated in April and the Murrumbateman Moving Feast is held over the long weekend in October.
If you crave fantastic food and wine, accompanied by fresh country air, pencil in time away in Yass Valley in your calendar.
