Pialligo Estate launches its ‘The Butcher, The Baker & The Merrymaker’ July Winter Event Series


Something special is happening in July out at Pialligo Estate.

They are making the most of winter in Canberra with eleven mid-winter/Christmas in July themed events...

…. and Canberra Food Bloggers were treated to a preview this week.

Showcasing wines from Pialligo Estate, Schnapps, wonderful gluwein and gin from Wild Brumby Distillery near Jindabyne and boutique beers from Pact, there was plenty to toast to the success of the venture.

Rohan from Pialligo Estate, Anne-Marie from Wild Brumby and Kevin from Pact introduced guests to their unique local products and partnership.


The Hot smoked salmon, Salmon gravolax, Pialligo ham and air dried beef with roast veg and accompaniments were amazing, as was Mel’s mum’s recipe for Christmas pudding with brandy custard.
