One of the great things about Gundagai, other than being the famous home of the Dog on the Tuckerbox, is that it's halfway between Sydney and Melbourne. Another: wine, wine and, yes, even more wine. Take the vinos made by Tumblong Hills, for instance. They're crafted by a community of winemakers. And, grape-wise, they benefit from winds from the Snowy Mountains.
Operating since 1998, and spread across 202 hectares with a view of the Murrumbidgee River, Tumblong Hills favours European-style drops — and its shiraz particularly stands out. One of its estate wines made only from grapes grown onsite, it features plum, cherry and raspberry tastes, plus those welcome notes of French oak.
If you're in the area, Tumblong Hills hosts wine tastings — but only by appointment. Otherwise, you can check out its range online.
