The best way to spend a winters day is to take a journey through the Majura Valley, enjoy and experience the best local produce.
Come and join the farming community of the Majura Valley for the inaugural Majura Valley Bush Festival on Sunday 30 April 2017.
Across the day we will celebrate the people, history and stories that make up the unique heritage of the Majura Valley. Enjoy Majura Valley meats as you tuck into a beef or lamb burger, taste the Mount Majura Wine, enjoy a beer, or sit down over a Devonshire tea or coffee with the Country Women’s Association. We will have displays of whip cracking, shearing, wood chopping, whip making and saddlery. Children can visit the animal petting farm, ride on the merry-go-round, or venture across the Valley on a hay or Cob & Co coach ride. Take some time out to sit back and watch the equestrian riding which will be on throughout the day. Your children will be delighted to take part in a pony ride too. Country and folk music will play in the background as you discover the treasures of a time past, with wonderful displays of heritage carriages, the original Majura Post Office and the Majura Valley heritage church/hall.
Join us for a small intimate dinner – numbers are strictly limited for this special event at
University House. We invite you to a dinner with Valli Little, one of Australia’s food superstars, who will be in conversation with Alex Sloan.
This 3 course dinner matched with our wines will feature recipes from Valli’s new book, My Kind Of Food, her most personal cookbook yet. Valli shares 100 recipes that she has cooked time and again to share with the people she loves, dishes that burst with colour and flavour, making the most of incredible seasonal produce. Valli’s recipes, in her ten best-selling cookbooks, have inspired a generation of home cooks to be more adventurous in the kitchen. For her legions of fans, Valli’s recipes, are synonymous with irresistible twists on unique ingredients, trends and clever reinterpretations of traditional favourites.
Back by popular demand oysters unplugged will be at cellar door for the Canberra Wine Week. Oysters are a perfect match with our Riesling or The Silurian sparkling. Join us at cellar door for a great afternoon enjoying freshly shucked oysters by the Ralston Bros from the Clyde River NSW. Oysters will be served from 12:30pm until sold out. We will be significantly increasing the amount of oysters from last year, however we still recommend getting in early.
Pod Food will be hosting a wine week garden party with wines from Mount Majura Vineyard, Eden Road Wines and Nick O'Leary. Pod Food will be serving canapes and charcuterie as well as cooking paella and a pig on the spit. All food is included in the ticket price. Each winery will be serving tasting's of their wines as well as selling the wines by the glass or by the bottle.
The Boathouse and Mount Majura Vineyard will come together on Thursday the 6th of April to present an evening of Tempranillo. The evening will begin with Sparking and canapes before sitting down to an evening of Tempranillo tasting. Frank and the team at Mount Majura Vineyard will select some great examples of Tempranillo from Spain and showcase them alongside their own current flagship. Along with the Spanish Tempranillo on the evening you will also taste some older vintage TSG and Tempranillo as well as the current single site Tempranillo. The talented and experimental chefs from the Boathouse will then match a course to each bracket of wines. The evening will include canapes + a four course menu, with sparkling on arrival and three wines per course.
The handmade market is one of the largest Canberra markets with a passion for supporting independent, small and creative businesses. This great local business brings together passionate creators, artists, designers as well as food and wine producers from Canberra and surrounds. We will be attending the market pouring tastes, serving wine by the glass and selling bottles of wine to take home.
Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th March | 10am-4pm each day
The Canberra District's wineries are coming to the heart of the city so that over two evenings you can enjoy the region's best wine and food without leaving the city limits. The event will be lit with festoon lights, local DJs will provide the soundtrack to the evenings and the great street art in Tocumwal Lane will provide the backdrop. This 18-19 November head to the city to enjoy all the region has to offer. The event runs from 4-8pm each evening.
Entry is $20 (or $15 for online early bird tickets) and includes a souvenir glass that will be your ticket to taste the wines on offer. You can use your tasting glass to purchase a glass of wine directly from the wineries. With plenty of food available why not grab a bite and a glass of your favourite wine and sit down and enjoy some local music. You will also be able to purchase bottles to take home.
