One of the must see wineries near Canberra

Ours is a journey of interconnection, a winding country road, over the creek, up through the stringy bark forest and onto the freedom of an open clearing.

Small parcels of fruit grow here, with healthy soils, clear air, brilliant sunshine and an organic approach, rewarding Fiona with exquisite fruit.  With her hands and a meticulous manner she creates, Yarrh Wines - running water.

We consistently produce a high quality range of small batch, hand crafted, estate grown and bottled wines, available for purchase at the cellar door, on-line and through selected retail outlets. 

Our winery and cellar door was established with strong environmental practices, boasting a contemporary Australian rammed earth and straw bale design, and a magnificent view across the Yass River valley.

Come and visit us Friday, Saturday, Sunday and most Public Holidays from 11am - 5pm (closed in July).  Just 45 minutes from the Canberra CBD and 10 minutes from Murrumbateman village.

Cellar door is closed for July and will reopen Friday 5 August at 11am.

Winter Solstice Bonfire

Tuesday, 07 June 2016

Bonfire at Yarrh Wines near Murrumbateman

Come and help us celebrate the shortest day of the year at our annual Winter Solstice Bonfire on Saturday 18th June.

The winter solstice (shortest day of the year or "midwinter") has been recognised and celebrated since Neolithic times and by many civilisations.  It marks the closing out of one growing season and marks renewal - the beginning of the long march to Spring. 

In temperate climates, the midwinter celebration was the last before people hunkered down, hoping they had put enought away to last until the first crops in Spring.  By midwinter, wine and beer made during the earlier harvest had finished fermentation and were ready for the celebration.

Pull on your woollies, laugh at the cold, enjoy some delicious canapés and a glass or two of fine Canberra District wines while toasting yourself by the bonfire.

We start with a tasting of rare and aged wines - Cabernet, Shiraz, Riesling and Pinot Noir - some back to 2003. Limited quantities will be available for sale, only on the day.

The run sheet:
          - 4pm-5pm: back vintage tasting and sales
          - 5pm -7pm: canapés, wine, music and bonfire

Tickets are $20/head for adults, $10/head for kids having canapés, free otherwise.

Members of the Yarrh Wine Club are eligible for 2 free tickets per membership.

Book early for this very popular event! Reservations are required, and payment is due on reservation.


This year, half of all proceeds (ticket and wine sales) will go to the Yass River Nanima Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade to help with the purchase of vital firefighting equipment and other operational resources, so buy up big! 

To reserve your place please email This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or call us on 6227 1474.

Happy Winter Solstice!
