This week's news

Only Cabernet Sauvignon and May Riesling to go!! Vintage has been kind to us and we managed to avoid damage from the rain.  Lots of late nights processing - but that's the fun part of having a winery.

Canberra District Harvest Festival (5 and 6 April 2014)

Food, music and harvest activities.

Enjoy homemade pies including a glass of wine for $15: beef and shiraz; chicken, leek and chardonnay; venison, pinot and juniper berry; or fetta, tomato and riesling. Indulge in filthy rich chocolate mousse ($8). We also have cheese plates for two ($20) or a duo of dips ($8) if you are just after a snack. 

Enjoy the sounds of Chris Johnson (1pm to 4pm) both days.  Chris is a magnificent guitar player who plays a range of tunes to take you back to your youth (if you're over 35 that is).  Save Chris by joining in with a bit of foot tapping and requests for some great songs - if not Wendy keeps asking him to play her old time favourite - House of the Rising Sun!

Why not join us at 10.30am each morning to participate in blending trials  You will take wine from the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz barrels and come up with your ideal blend!  Don't be scared - it is good fun and the only thing you need to know about wine is what you like.  Bookings are preferred via email - use the contact us button or telephone 02 6227 0208.

Worried about the forecast for rain? We're not.  We have plenty of tables under cover and protected from the rain.  We will also have tables set up in the winery. Enjoy your lunch with the sound of bubbling, fermenting Shiraz grapes in the background.

Want a bargain?

Dionysus Winery is a micro business focussing on making a range of wines and selling through cellar door and restaurants only.  Due to some bumper crops and Wendy's inpatience, we have decided to sell a few wines by the box at 50% off!  Sorry Michael!  Grab a box of six 2013 Riesling for $60 (normally $120) .  You can snavel a box of twelve 2010 Shiraz for $144 or twelve 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon for $132.  Sorry, at this price, cellar door only.  

New releases

THe Harvest Festival sees the release of new vintages of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet and Shiraz.  Exciting times.
