Flyfaire Takes the Gold at Inland Tourism Awards

Last July, Julianne and Les, our Business Director and Winemaker, hit the road to attend the Inland Tourism Awards at Broken Hill. 

The Inland Tourism Awards are held every year to acknowledge excellence in tourism in the four Victorian and New South Wales regional tourism areas of Central, Inland, Murray and Riverina.

The team from Flyfaire were thrilled to have made the finals and we weren't expecting too much given the stiff competition.

We were totally surprised when the winner was announced and it was Flyfaire's name that was called. Our winemaker had this to say about the win:

“We put a lot of hard work into the submission and we’re delighted that it paid-off in such a big way. It really is such a fabulous surprise and great to be recognised for the hard work that we’ve put into our tourism experience.”
— Les, Flyfaire Winemaker

No rest for the wicked or so they say. Next, we've entered the NSW Tourism Awards with the finalists to be announced mid-October. 


Wine Awards: Riesling Challenge, NSW Small Winemakers

Flyfaire 2015 Riesling packed and ready for Canberra Riesling Challenge

We've had two wine competitions on the radar recently, including a bronze winning performance at the NSW Small Winemakers Wine Show and entering our latest Riesling in the Canberra International Riesling Challenge.

At the 24th Annual NSW Small Winemakers Wine Show, our winemaker has again had success with our new Flyfaire 2014 "Jane in the Mist" Riesling which received a Bronze in the category "Blended Fortified Wine - Dry to Sweet" with the great score of 48.5 points. 

The other wine competition we're participating in is the celebrated Canberra International Riesling Challenge, which attracts wines from Riesling producing countries from all around the world and is seen as one of the most significant events of its type in the southern hemisphere. Having entered the challenge, we will be competing with 500 other Riesling producers from across the world. The results are out Friday the 16th of October, 2015.


Colouring In for Adults and Dine on the Grapewine Event

This coming 29th of October, the Henty Library is hosting an event at Flyfaire where it's time for the adults to colour in (who said colouring in was just for the kids) and enjoy wine tasting at the same time. 

The cost is only $5 bucks and it promises to be a social event. Bookings can be make by contacting skane@greaterhume.nsw.gov.au for details or you can always contact us at info@flyfaire.com (we will pass on your details).

So, how do we make these platters so tasty you may ask? Easy! We use vegetables and herbs from Flyfaire's very own garden. Fresh organic produce is always sought from a variety of local producers to support the local community. Quality and low food miles are always a criteria for selection (check out our page on sustainability). Locally-produced is always freshest and travels less distance!

We are also committed to supporting the local community. And this is no exception when we were designing our new café menu items. 

A good example of support for the community is that we purchase vegetables from a local Woomargama 11-year-old during the summer at our local post office/shop. We buy all the zucchini, squash and cucumbers that he can produce and use it in the Café menu.

Some other recent additions to the café menu include:

  • Beers and Cider from Cheeky Peak Brewery - Albury/Wodonga's only craft brewery!
  • Local cordials by Frou-Frou Cordials including interesting flavours such as Lemon & Lemon Myrtle, Just Mango, Shiraz & Chilli.
  • And don't forget the kids (if they're not too busy playing on our playground) with Ham & Cheese Toasties or Spaghetti Bolognaise.

We look forward to seeing you shortly to try our fresh new offerings!


Flyfaire Wines is located in the Woomargama National Park and we are close to the regional centres of Holbrook, Albury/Wodonga, Canberra, and Wagga Wagga. We produce quality cool climate wines and provide a premium cellar door experience.

New Children's Playground at Flyfaire

You might have seen late last year that we had recently begun construction of our new playground (think Les and Jarryd with the High-Vis gear on the playground). The great news is that we have officially finished our newest addition to Flyfaire and it has been very popular with visiting families.

Having a 'Kid Friendly Winery' is true to our mission of having a great cellar door experience that enhances the local community and what better way than to ensure all ages are entertained when they visit Flyfaire!

For visiting families, we also offer inside the Cellar Door, we offer a baby toy box and also a children's menu to ensure all ages can enjoy something to eat or drink when visiting. Don't forget the very important problems that have been solved with pram access all on one level, baby changing facilities, choice of a quiet room or family area for breast feeding, and children's high chairs.

This weekend being the first Saturday in May, we'll be lighting Miss Esse. Every year, on the first Saturday in May - mark your calendars - we'll be lighting her!  

Miss Esse has multiple functions, including heating the Cellar Door in winter, cooking our fabulous slow cooked meals and just looking pretty damn good. We can only run her in the colder months as she gets too hot in summer and we wouldn't want to risk hot embers starting a bushfire.

Miss Esse will be slowly cooking up some yummy Lamb Shanks simmered in a Merlot sauce served with hot bread from Nord Bakery and plenty of butter to melt in your bread. Sounds mouthwatering? Come along and join us to celebrate her lighting.
