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.

Halliday - - Canberra District -

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.
