Both red and white table wines as well as fortifieds are well represented over a number of classes.

Chambourcin is a disease resistant French hybrid grape planted all over the Shoalhaven Coast and is used for the production of red and rose' table wines as well as port styles. It is also now found a new niche in the sparkling red wine category.
