Food and wine in Southern Highlands, Yass and Young
Experience food from a farm plate, and wine from vine to glass - in this gourmet region which stretches from the Southern Highlands through Yass and Young.
Take some time out to sample local produce from the farmers' markets. Or dine at some of NSW's best restaurants. Perhaps enjoy annual food and wine festivals, or simply pick your own fruits at one of the many orchards in the region. And don't forget stop by a cellar door to try a local wine.
Visitors flock to the Southern Highlands and its lovely townships like Bowral and Berrima, for the locally-grown and produced food, and rapidly expanding vineyards, which are right at home in this region's exceptional cool climate.
The nation's capital of Canberra, Young, Yass and Murrumbateman are also championing the cool-climate wine industry. About 50 wineries operate in the Murrumbateman/Yass region alone â take Murrumbateman Cool Climate Wine Drive and sample a few of the local delicacies.
Young, at the centre of what's been called the Hilltops wine region, has become renowned for its premium reds from cabernet sauvignon to shiraz; as have neighbouring towns, Boorowa and Harden. This region is also famous for its fresh produce, particularly cherries and other stone fruit.
