Cowra wine region
The Cowra wine region is perfect for a delicious escape. Enjoy tours of acclaimed organic wineries and taste wine at boutique cellar doors. You’ll also discover classic country pubs and local restaurants where the menus feature local produce grown on innovative eco-agricultural farms.
Sip and savour
The Cowra wine region has more than 30 vineyards planted around the historic towns and villages of Cowra, Grenfell, Billimari and Canowindra. This wine region champions sustainable viticulture, creating organic wines and biodynamic wines.
You’ll taste excellent red and white wines, harvested from premium wine grapes. Chardonnay is the hero with its ripe peach and melon highlights. Top brands of the region include Windowrie Estate, Pig in the House, Rosnay, Gardeners Ground, Wallington and Kalari.
Join a wine tour
Join Ideal Tours on a winery adventure, or visit cellar doors directly. A short drive from Cowra is Kalari Wines by the Lachlan River. North is the village of Canowindra and the cellar doors of Toms Waterhole Wines and Wallington Wines. You can visit Rosnay Organic any day of the week by appointment.
Delicious food and wine
Take a tour of Ochre Arch Farm, an eco-agricultural farm producing beef and wool. Pick up fresh produce, meat, baked goods, wine and more at the Cowra Community Markets on the third Saturday of the month. The events calendar includes the annual Cowra Wine Show Public Tasting.
The Quarry Restaurant is set among the vines and has a cellar door to complement the flavours. There are tasty cafes and are a number of country pubs, including the Imperial Hotel, which is a stroll away from the Cowra Regional Art Gallery.
You’ll come across pubs serving hearty meals, such as the Railway Hotel and the Albion Hotel in historic Grenfell, a gold mining town and home to one of Australia’s iconic ‘big things’ – the Big Gold Pick and Pan. The Bland Hotel is southwest of Grenfell in Quandialla.
