Contentious Character
In Food & Beverages

Contentious Character is a cool-climate Canberra winery set in the hills of Wamboin, just 30km east of Canberra city.

We’re a single vineyard winery and our first plantings date back to 1990.

At one of the Canberra wine region’s highest elevations, our undulating hills give every vine the chance to breathe fresh air and bask in the sun. These conditions akin to Continental Europe mean our wines take on an elegant, nuanced character. It’s a lovable contrast to what many expect from Australian wines.

Come taste our boutique Australian wines at our cellar door and enjoy our contemporary Australian menu (with an Italian flair) featuring local produce at our restaurant; all against the backdrop of rolling hills and distant views of the Snowy Mountains, create a charming backdrop to our cool-climate vineyards.

Whether you come to us, or our wines come to you, we’ll give you plenty to talk about.

What’s a little contention between friends? Contrasting views make life more interesting, and wine more rewarding.

We may challenge each other, but united, we stand our ground and answer to just three things. Our hearts. Our tastebuds. and the like-minded folk who visit us.

Everything else is debatable. After all, in Canberra taking sides comes with territory.

So here’s to you, however you are. Raise a glass, ruffle some feathers, and celebrate your contentious character.

It makes you someone worth drinking with.
