Experience the best of the NSW wine regions (and of the Canberra district at that) with our award-winning wines, where we grow our own grapes and make our wines onsite. 
...
Our wines can be sampled as part of a wine tasting at our cellar door, or part of lunch and dinner at our restaurant, set in the rolling hills of Wamboin, just 20 minutes from Canberra airport in the Canberra district wine region. If you can’t make it into our cellar door, then buy online and enjoy in the comfort of your own home; we ship Australia-wide. 
You can have it all at Contentious Character. We offer a large selection of premium Australian wines with a variety of Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sparklings, Rose, Dessert Wines, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Merlot and more. We serve up both New World wines and Old world vintages too. The different personalities of our cool-climate wines will give you plenty to debate
As a boutique vineyard and producer, we don’t believe in making the ‘same same’ wines each year. 
We’re directed more by the season and what happens in the vines. We often don’t make a firm decision about what or sometimes even how we will produce our next vintage until it comes time to harvest and press our grapes. 
We work towards minimal intervention in the winemaking process believing the most premium wines are those that don’t require too much work or effort to finish. 
Instead, we leverage what the grapes and season have delivered us, accentuating those fruit flavours and balancing the acid structure to provide a unique wine every vintage. 
There’s a Contentious Character wine to suit everyone. Order as you need or join our Wine Club for regular replenishment, delivered straight to your doorstep.
