Collector Wines

Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Canberra, Australia

Alex McKay started Collector Wines in 2005 with just a handful of cool climate shiraz and a determination to make elegant, long-lived wines. Fast forward to today, and they are known for wines that sing with a purity of regional expression and varietal definition. Their grapes come from vineyards dotted around the Canberra District and region, but their cellar door is in the heart of country Collector, just outside Canberra.

Consistently recognized at regional and national wine shows, their wines showcase the Canberra region and fine winemaking. Alongside riesling, chardonnay and shiraz, Alex has focused on emerging varieties that he knows have an exciting future in the region, such as pinot meunier, gruner veltliner, fiano and sangiovese.

Located in the Old Collector Inn, built around 1829, enjoy a tasting by the fire in winter or wander the garden in summer. Take home some handmade pottery by Kate McKay Ceramics, and finish with lunch or a coffee at Some Cafe next door. Arrive by Marked Tree Rd, an easy dirt road on the Cullerin escarpment, for breathtaking views of Lake George.
