More than 20 cellar doors, all within a convenient 35 minute drive from the Canberra CBD, will be participating in the festival designed to celebrate blues music and fine wine. The weekend program will feature wine tastings to demonstrate the region’s diverse wine styles, guided vineyard tours, feasting temptations and live jazz music.

Participating in the celebrations will be Barton Estate, Brindabella Hills Winery, Capital Wines, Four Winds Vineyard, Pankhurst Wines, Shaw Vineyard Estate, Tallagandra Hill Wines, Yarrh Wines and many more. Visitors will have the opportunity to speak with the district’s highly lauded winemakers and gain an understanding, and a taste, of what makes this region so unique and why its wines are among some of the most highly regarded in the country.

The 2013 festival highlights include Shaw Vineyard Estate’s paella and BBQ on their terrace, Barton Estate hosting jazz guitarist Andy Campbell, Four Winds Vineyard’s wood-fired pizzas at their brand new cellar door, talks at Yarrh Wines on their slow smoked BBQ and musical delights from the local Campbell High Senior Jazz Band.

Festival-goers will be able to make use of a ‘Festival Passport’ and, when stamped at three participating wineries, will be eligible to enter the draw to win a number of exciting wine package prizes.

The relaxing tunes of cool jazz bands will be playing among the grounds at a number of winery locations. A program of special lunches and dinners throughout the region’s numerous dining hot-spots will also be on offer, featuring locally produced classic and contemporary wines matched to fresh, regional produce.
