The Murrumbateman Moving Feast is on this coming weekend, Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October, with over 18 participating wineries and speciality producers to tempt your tastebuds with divine wines and gourmet menus.
Canberra, or more specifically the Yass Valley, is fast gaining a reputation for its excellent cold climate wines, in particular its leading varieties of Shiraz and Riesling, and many of the wineries also include cafés and restaurants where you can sample a degustation, enjoy a light lunch or dinner—often with local entertainment, and learn a bit about wine matching.
To that end, the Makers of Murrumbateman have pulled together to put on an entire weekend of wine and food tasting and sampling. Simply download the program, select your choice of main and dessert, and book your ticket—it’s that easy!
With mains from traditional French cassoulet, black truffle chicken, Australian barramundi, and Korean bao sliders, accompanied by desserts including chocolate mousse, cakes, cheesecakes and tortes, to clafoutis, home-made ice creams, and the quintessential Aussie pav … what’s not to like! Each meal is served with matching wines, and … you get to keep the souvenir wine glass.
But wait, there’s more! Pick up your Murrumbateman Moving Feast passport and have it stamped at the participating venues to go in the draw to win a prize pack full of local goodies and produce.
After the hustle and bustle of the moving feast you can slow down a bit with Music Monday on 2 October. Participating wineries will be offering cellar door wine tastings with live music from local bands, musos, and singer-songwriters. Click the link for more info.
