About

Planted on the north east facing slopes of the granite hills to the north of Canberra. The aspect is perfect in spring to warm the vines with the early morning sun and let the frosty pre-dawn air drain down the Nanima valley.

 

On a summers evening, the cool easterly breeze quickly drops the temperature of the bunches so extending the ripening period to create the delicate yet complex flavours that are the signature of the Canberra region.

The Vigneron

Now in the hands of the second generation; Will Bruce was born with wine in his veins and mud under his finger nails. The combination of old vines, new blood and an enduring passion for growing premium cool climate grapes is producing wines of exceptional character.

Cellar Door

Come and try my wines at our cellar door located at the Smokehouse Restaurant and open every day from 9:30am to 5:00pm.

The Wily Trout
Wine Club

There is nothing better than sharing a glass of wine with family and friends. The Wily Trout wine club helps you keep your shelves stocked with hand crafted wines where you know the people that nurtured it and hills where it was grown.

 

The wine club is very flexible; you can login and change your details and choices at any time. We will remind you that you have a case on its way so that you can modify dates or delivery address if you are away from home.

  • Its time to think about how to indulge yourself at the weekend. Scorched rhubarb, apple, pistachio and white chocolate does it for me!  #foodblog #foodblogger #food #foodie #foodporn #instafood #foodphotography #foodstagram #foodlover #foodgasm #yummy #delicious #foodpic #foodpics #foods #foodies #instagood #tasty #dinner #foodgram #eat #healthyfood #foodlove #breakfast #lunch #cooking #foodart #homemade #blogger
  • Come on in from the cold and have a glass of the Wily Trout Shiraz. We have just released our 2017 vintage - and its all violets and spice. We are open for tastings seven days a week - but better still drop by for lunch and try a glass with food.

  • Beef cheek, smoked potato, cured egg and truffle jus. One of the dished from our truffle tasting menu, and let me assure you it is simply divine! Our truffle menu runs throughout winter until the truffles stop, so come on out before the season changes.

  • The first lambs of the season have started to arrive, this little one is only hours old and already is up and suckling. We lamb in winter so that when the little ones are ready to leave their mums in spring, we will have plenty of pasture for them.
