This favorite among gourmands is 25 minutes from Canberra. Here you'll find a tasting room offering good examples of Pinot Noir and Shiraz, and fabulous food and smoked goods offered by Poachers Pantry and the award-winning Smokehouse Cafe. Stock up on picnic-style smoked meats, poultry, and vegetables at the Pantry, or visit the Cafe (Friday–Sunday only) for a memorable countryside dining experience in a historic cottage. Poachers Panty is one of the 25 operators who
make up the Poacher's Way (www.thepoachersway.com.au), a collective of food emporiums, wineries, restaurants, galleries and experiences that are loosely linked by a trail and that provide memorable regional experiences.
