The Brindibella Hills provide the scenic backdrop to the nations capital. The Winery of the same name can be found in Murrumbidgee, 25kms north of the capital. It stands on an impressive ridge surrounded by imposing mountains to the west. Established in 1986 by Roger and Faye Harris, they planted eight acres of grape varieties in an area that was selected for its unique soil and climate.
Grape varieties were planted on a granite ridge above the Murrumbidgee River 25km north west of Canberra on the escarpment of the Murrumbidgee River. Nearby mountains to the west provide shelter and the vineyard enjoys a climatic advantage of being a warmer spot within a cooler climate. The vineyard was chosen due to its climatic suitability being similar to the Adelaide Hills, Rioja and Tuscany. Alternative varieties have been found to prosper here because of these conditions.
