A capital idea: Canberra's wine celebration

The Australian national capital of Canberra is surrounded by standout cool-climate wineries - and the the Canberra Wine District turns 50 this year. 

That means the 2021 Canberra Wine Week will feature a lot of celebrating from March 20-28.

There will be over 60 wines on offer at the annual Market Wine Tasting event to be held this year in the Kambri Cultural Precinct in Acton, from 3pm-6pm on March 20. All tickets include a 50-Year commemorative Plumm stemless tasting glass. 

At least a dozen local wineries will be pouring their wines and visitors can buy a glass of wine, or a bottle and share it with friends in the Courtyard, grab a pre-purchased grazing box, and sit back, relax and enjoy the cool style of the cultural center of the ANU.

Entry is $40 online pre-sale, $45 at the door.

A special dinner at The Boathouse on March 24 will feature Tim Kirk of Clonakilla, one of the founding families of the region, as key guest speaker.

The evening will feature four courses, four different Clonakilla wines and bubbles from Gallagher Wines, 

Tickets are limited at $180 per person.
