New Year’s Day Winery Guide

Are you looking for something to do to welcome in 2021 on New Year’s Day? Why not visit one of our local Yass Valley wineries!

The following cellar doors are open on New Year’s Day – it is recommended to call ahead to make a booking.

Yarrh Wines

Phone: (02) 6227 1474

Nestled into a hill and providing spectacular views of their vineyard and the Yass River Valley, you will find Yarrh Wines. Established in 1997, Yarrh Wines make their wines from their own vineyard using sustainable practices such as composting, mulching and limiting the use of artificial inputs to create wines of great character. Say hello to 2021 in the newly refurbished cellar door that is designed for the new normal of social distancing where you can try their wines and enjoy simple dishes designed to complement your wine tasting experience.

Helm Wines

Phone: (02) 6227 5953

Ken and Judith Helm started their vineyard, winery and cellar door in 1973 and have built it into one of the leading wineries in the Canberra District. The philosophy at Helm Wines is that wine making is an art, not a science. Ken’s flagship wines are Riesling and Cabernets with the 2020 James Halliday Wine Companion rating them “a 5 star outstanding winery capable of producing wines of a very high quality”. Begin your 2021 with a visit to Helm Wines to enjoy your wine tasting experience in the historic 100 year old Toual School House – the grounds also offer great potential for picnics with gorgeous picturesque rural scenery where you might spot some wildlife.

Lerida Estate

Phone: (02) 4848 0231

Lerida Estate continually strives to provide a welcoming and memorable visitor experience to stand alongside our exceptional Canberra District wines. They primarily rely on grapes from their 19.6 acres of vines which were first planted on lower slopes of Lake George Range in 1997, yet enhance their offering with fruit sourced from growers of super-premium fruit in the surrounding areas of Tumbarumba, Hilltops and Orange. Designed by the distinguished Australian architect, Glenn Murrcutt, Lerida Estate boasts both a cellar door and café making it the perfect place to welcome in the New Year.
