Contentious character is a cool-climate winery, set in the hills of Wamboin, 30km east of Canberra. Whether you come to ours, or our wines come to you, we’ll give you plenty to talk about. We’re a single vineyard winery.
We grow our own grapes, sell our own wines, and make our own good times. You’re welcome to join us on the weekends where we throw open our cellar door, fire up the pizza oven and serve fresh local produce, paired with our wines. Every story starts somewhere. Our harks back to the Lambert Vineyards. After 24 years, the original winemakers moved on, we moved in, and set about making the place our own.
We overhauled the kitchen, tended the grounds and gave the restaurant a facelift. We didn’t touch the told vineyards though, we may be contentious, but we’re not crazy! Instead, we’re continuing in the tradition of cool-climate wine making, but throwing a few twists.
Contentious Character builds on the Lambert estate’s reputation for award-winning boutique wines. We’re big fans of experimentation, so you’ll be sure to see a few curiosities, alongside all your favourites, making a trip to our vineyard different every time. Between old and new world styles, you’ll find quite the range behind our cellar-door. From austere, yet elegant Pinot Noirs and Rieslings, to full flavoured Shiraz, Cabernets, Merlot, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. And if you can’t come to us, you’re in luck, we deliver all over Australia.
