Contentious Character is a contemporary vineyard estate with winery, cellar door, kitchen, and event facilities, in the hills of Wamboin, 15 minutes from Canberra Airport. Contentious Character offers several unique wine tourism experiences, from small to indulgent tastings, with and without dining.

Experience a taste of the entire Canberra region in one location, with wines from the Founders Museum Collection of old world style vintages. These aged wines have matured exceptionally well with cellaring and now present a mellow complexity, way beyond their value. They are complemented by recent vintages, under the Contentious Character brand, that brings a fresh new world twist to the old world styles.

Look across the vineyard and surrounding countryside while the kitchen serves up a fresh, local sharing menu, paired to the wines, for special times, with family and friends.

That's hardly contentious!
