Eat and drink your way through Canberra with Taste Canberra.

This package invites you to experience local wine and spirits with your friends, straight from the source.

Mount Majura Vineyard: Wine tasting x4

Canberra District wine pioneer Dr. Edgar Riek discovered Mount Majura Vineyard’s patch of limestone and volcanic rock on an east facing slope in the cool continental Canberra district in the late 80’s. From one pioneer to the next, current winemaker Frank van de Loo now makes one of the best Tempranillo wines in Australia. Along with Tempranillo, Shiraz, TSG (Tempranillo, Shiraz & Graciano) and Riesling stand out as the best wines along with interesting varietals such as Graciano and Mondeuse. All wines come only from their own 9.3ha vineyard where quality comes naturally.

The Canberra Distillery: Group tour and tasting for up to 10 people

The Canberra Distillery is a small batch distillery with a passion for local flavours and the creative process. Because they are unconstrained by the need to produce volume, they channel their time and energy into quality – and focus on discovering new tastes.

Join them on a journey through the distillery and learn the processes that go into making your favourite gins. Tours will take you to the production floor where you will witness the love, art and passion which goes into the making of their spirits. At the end you will be able to taste their products to find your favourites.

In addition to the tasting, you can try a standard sized drink of your favourite gin mixed with tonic and an appropriate garnish, served with a grazing platter from their partners at the Lazy Grazer. This can all be enjoyed in the heart of their Distillery.

All funds raised from this wonderful auction will go towards the important advocacy and community engagement work that the Conservation Council does throughout the year. Canberra is a wonderful, natural city, but we face significant challenges to protect biodiversity and be genuinely sustainable as we go forward. When you bid in the auction you are helping protect your local environment, as well as treating yourself to one of these gorgeous local experiences. Check out the packages on offer, and come along to our World Environment Day Dinner!
