Canberra region wines have qualities derived from a unique Australian environment. The district's vineyards cover a large altitudinal range of 300 to 800 metres. The variation in temperature, vineyard elevations, different soil types and the skills and character of the winemaker provide varieties in styles such as Sangiovese to Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. The ability to ripen the same fruit across the whole region provides great diversity within styles.
