WINE TOUR that includes CONTENTIOUS CHARACTER VINEYARD

Contentious Character is a cool-climate winery, set in the hills of Wamboin, 30km east of Canberra. Contentious Character harks back to the Lambert Vineyards. After 24 years, the original winemakers moved on, they moved in, and set about making the place their own. They didn’t touch the old vineyards though, they may be contentious, but they’re not crazy. Instead, they’re continuing in the tradition of cool-climate wine-making, but throwing in a few twists.

They’re a single vineyard winery. They grow their own grapes, sell their own wines, and make their own good times. You’re welcome to join them at the weekends when they throw open their cellar door, fire up the pizza oven and serve fresh local produce from their kitchen, paired with their wines.
