Four Winds Winery - this Saturday 19 August
Another in our series of featured wineries from Canberra. This week the delightful wines of Four Winds Winery here at Danks Street. Come along and taste, savour and purchase.
What started out as one couple’s dream to grow and sell grapes has turned into an inter-generational family business. Four Winds Vineyard now grows grapes, makes wine and has built a cellar door so that guests can enjoy our wines with wood-fired pizzas sitting amongst the vines.
The ‘Four Winds’ Story
The property’s name ‘Four Winds’ has a long history. There was a slab hut on the land where one of the early miners and his wife lived. Her name was Scheherazade, after the story telling character in The Arabian Nights. Her favourite story described a magic carpet being borne by the four winds of good fortune. She decided that this small farm in Murrumbateman would be called Four Winds as it would carry their good fortunes.
