Wines fit for a god
Dionysus was the ancient Greek god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine. It's fitting then that he should have a winery named after him. And it's right here in the Canberra region.

Dionysus Winery is a small, award-winning family-owned and operated boutique winery located in Murrumbateman. Owners Michael and Wendy O'Dea planted their first vines in 1998. They opened their cellar door in 2003, and since then, more than 20 000 people have visited.
