Organic wines have been gaining more attention in recent years. Biodynamic wines, too. So have vegan wines — and if you're looking for all three in one drop, Lark Hill makes just that in the hills above Canberra, where it boasts one of the highest plantings in the region.

Thanks to its lofty location, its shale and clay soil, and the fact that conditions are dry, Lark Hill is all about grapes that can thrive in hardy conditions. Think riesling, chardonnay, pinot noir and grüner veltliner. Opt for the former, and you'll be sipping a tangy tipple that's big on taste but actually has less alcohol content than usual.

Lark Hill's onsite cellar door sits within a stone-walled building and offers up $10 tastings for days a week. Restaurant D&K Kitchen is also part of the property, serving up charcuterie and cheese, as well as mains such as pumpkin ravioli, lamb shoulder and duck leg on cassoulet.
