The harvest festivities this year are going to be something grand! The wineries across the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) region are going to add the inaugural Canberra District Wine Week to the festivities.
The Canberra District Wine Week will be officially launched on April 6 at Barton’s Hotel Realm. A first-class wine dinner will be held there where Huon Hooke, a reputable wine writer and judge, will give his opinions on the wines displayed on the show. Clonakilla’s Tim Kirk, the 2013 Winemaker of the Year by Gourmet Traveller magazine will be the Master of Ceremonies of the show.

The dinner is not the only even to enjoy! The wine enthusiasts and food lovers will have the opportunities to see and taste the diverse range of wines produced in the region along with enjoying dinners.

The program from April 4 to April 10 will feature food and wine dinners, wine tastings, and more events in Gundaroo, Bungendore, Yass, Murrumbateman, and Canberra. The program will end by celebrating the big event – the annual Harvest Festival – during April 9 and 10.
