Canberra has some great wineries offering tastings and a few also have a short menu that you can use to create a child-friendly lunch with friends.
Four Winds Vineyard is one of these, offering a choice of four great $15 nine inch pizzas from their wood-fired pizza oven on weekends.
They are served in some lovely grassy surroundings where plenty of room for children to run around safely in the summer.
In the winter the wood fire is a cozy inside spot but it may not be so good for young children.
It’s hard to know which pizza is the best…
….but perhaps the BBQ Chicken Pizza is the most memorable with BBQ sauce, chicken, red onion, gorgonzola and cheese….
….followed by the Potato Pizza with potato, onion, gorgonzola, rosemary and cheese….
….then the Salami Pizza with tomato sauce, salami, black olives and cheese….
….and finally the Caramelised Onion Pizza (the special of the month) with wilted baby spinach, caramelised onion, toasted pine nuts, balsamic vinegar and cheese.
Do try the wines and perhaps purchase a glass to go with your pizzas.
Located very close to Murrumbateman, do make sure you leave plenty of time (40 mins) to travel out from Canberra.
Wine tasting: 10am – 5pm each weekend.
Wood-fired pizzas: 12-3pm each weekend.
