Located in the heart of Murrumbateman's cool climate wine country, Barton Estate is a family-owned gem that crafts premium wines in the Canberra District. Their offerings, like the unique Petit Verdot and Sangiovese, are a testament to the winery's innovative spirit. The wines reflect not just the unique terroir but also the family's passion and scientific approach to winemaking. Established in 1997, the estate has garnered a reputation for quality and innovation.
While the winery produces classic Canberra District varietals like Shiraz and Chardonnay, they've also ventured into lesser-known grapes like Viognier and Riesling. This makes Barton Estate a fascinating stop for those looking to explore beyond the typical Canberra District offerings.
