John Leyshon, President of the Canberra District Wine Industry Association (CDWIA) said ‘This is a great way to show Sydney-siders what the Canberra District has to offer and I’m sure they will be excited about the range and quality of the wines. The fact that they can sample them, for free, on their own doorstep, is an added bonus.”
