About This Deal

Treat yourself and a loved one to an unforgettable gourmet experience at Contentious Character, set in the hills of Wamboin. Located just 30km east of Canberra, this boutique vineyard estate holds a winery, cellar door and restaurant. Your experience begins with a tasting of up to 12 vintage wines – if you're up for it! Sip, swirl and savour an extensive range of aged vintages from their Founders Museum Collection, followed by a range of recent vintages. Enjoy a tasting plate of 12 matched food elements while tasting including home made preserves such as Cherry merlot jam, Contentious Chutney, Chilli honey, crackers and home made foccacia, 4 cheeses, cold meat selection, mussels, and smoked trout. Afterwards choose a main course and dessert for lunch that blends traditional Italian flair with contemporary Australian dishes, perfectly complementing their wine range.
