Tumbarumba is held in great renown for producing premium cold-climate grapes, highly sought after by Australian winemakers and wine-drinkers. Chardonnay and classic sparkling styles made the Tumbarumba Wine Region famous, but our vineyards also produce excellent Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Shiraz, Merlot, Gammay, Tempranillo and Viognier. This weekend is an opportunity like no other, to enjoy premium wines from Australia’s coldest mainland wine region – Tumbarumba.
