The Brindabellas are the mountain backdrop to the national capital Canberra. Brindabella Hills vineyard and winery are situated 25km north of Canberra on a ridge above the Murrumbidgee, with the beautiful mountain ranges to the west.

Ringed by hills, this protected site with its well drained granite soils offers a perfect environment for the production of premium grapes for table wines.

The Brindabella Hills vineyard was established in 1986 in an area not previously planted to vines. Initially planted as an experimental plot to assess the quality of premium varieties in this new area. Eight acres of premium grape varieties were planted on a granite ridge above the Murrumbidgee River 25 km north west of Canberra on the escarpment of the Murrumbidgee River.

The winemaking philosophy is to capture in the bottle the unique character of each grape variety in balance with the subtle flavours arising from fermentation and barrel ageing. That is, wines where flavour complexity, vinosity and body are all important. Red wines are fermented in open concrete vats and the skins plunged by hand in the traditional manner then aged in French and American oak for 1-2 years prior to release.
