Situated in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, Tumbarumba is a charming little town with a cool climate that happens to be perfect for growing grapes, particularly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties. With numerous boutique wineries and vineyards, the region is a trendy destination for winery tours.
Since this is a cold wine region, you can expect outstanding wines: elegant, pure, and absolutely delicious. Visiting Tumbarumba vineyards offers an opportunity to enjoy the stunning scenery while sipping on the region’s finest wines.
In this blog post, we’ll share some tips and tricks on how to make the most out of your wine tour so it becomes one of your most memorable experiences.
A wine tasting is a perfect way to experience many different wines a winery or vineyard offers. Or, if you’re very ambitious – all of them!
Each winery has its own unique offerings, so take this opportunity to sample a wide variety of wines, including, of course, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and sparkling wine. During your wine tasting, pay close attention to the flavors, aromas, and textures of the wines. Also, feel free to ask questions and engage with the staff or winemakers about each wine!
Many wineries in Tumbarumba also offer food pairings to enhance the tasting experience, so don’t overeat before your tasting. Cheese platters, charcuterie boards, and gourmet bites will elevate your tasting experience and create truly memorable combinations.
Vineyard tours offer a chance to discover spectacular scenery, meet winegrowers, and learn about regional viticultural practices.
Take advantage of this opportunity to stroll through the grapevines and gain a deeper understanding of how the vineyard’s terroir influences the wines. Wondalma Vineyard, Courabyra Vineyard, and Mount Tumbarumba Vineyard are just some of the beautiful vineyards you can visit while in Tumbarumba.
If you find wine tastings too short or too simple for your taste, we highly recommend a winery tour or two.
A winery tour offers a unique opportunity to explore the vineyards, taste wines, and learn about the winemaking process from the winemakers themselves. In Tumbarumba, many wineries provide guided tours of their facilities, including barrel rooms, cellars, and winemaking areas.
If you’re passionate about the winemaking process, this type of tour will be right up your alley. You’ll learn about grape cultivation, processing, fermentation, barrel aging, and bottling.
Seeing the winemaking equipment and how the winemakers do their magic can deepen your appreciation for the craftsmanship behind the wines.
With its rolling hills, expansive vineyards, and lush green landscapes, Tumbarumba is a picture of scenic beauty.
Many wineries here offer picturesque settings for wine tasting, allowing visitors to enjoy the stunning scenery while sipping their wines of choice. So when visiting, take time to explore the beautiful estates and appreciate the lovely countryside.
The vineyards look the best when in full bloom and during sunsets, and we highly recommend capturing these moments, as well as taking candid shots of your friends and family enjoying the wines and the scenery. Take lots of pictures so you can later create a beautiful Mixbook and preserve your memories forever.
Finally, if you come across wines that particularly tickle your taste buds – and with so many outstanding Tumbarumba wines, you’re pretty much guaranteed to! – purchase a bottle or two to take home.
Tumbarumba has some of the best wines in Australia, and being directly from the cellar door ensures you’re getting wines at their best. Not to mention, you may get an opportunity to acquire a limited release!
By purchasing wines you like, you’ll not only support local winemakers but also continue to savor the Tumbarumba experience long after the scenic wine-tasting tour finishes.
