the Southern Highlands and neighbouring districts create world class wines. Every month we run a publicly voted wine awards featuring a different variety. The wines are tasted 'blind' (ie their labels are covered up) and we invite the public to taste and then rank in their order of preference. These rankings are then used to announce the winner for each variety for the year.
We are located in the busiest shopping arcade in the heart of Bowral. Springetts Arcade is opposite the Gumnut Patisserie and diagonally opposite the entry for the Empire Cinema.
We are a regional wine hub showcasing wine from every Southern Highlands vineyard and many of the neighbouring regions. We run weekly tastings and can also organise private tastings for groups.
