City Winery

City Winery | Fortitude Valley

You won’t need to travel far at all for this winery, located right here in Brisbane city! It was the Gerler wine crew who came up with the brilliant idea of building a winery in the heart of Brisbane’s food and drink scene in Fortitude Valley. You’ll find City Winery a short stroll from James Street, where you can dine on modern Australian fare while sipping delicious wine made from grapes sourced from Australia’s key growing regions. They frequently hold tastings, events and “Meet The Winemaker” evenings, so it’s the perfect venue to learn more about wine within.

Summit Estate | Thulimbah

One of the best wineries in Queensland on the Granite Belt, Summit Estate is located in Northern Stanthorpe, brought to life by a group of people who love wine. Showcasing award-winning wines of elegance and complexity, Summit Estate focuses on aromatic European and Mediterranean varieties, whilst actively working on the Strange Birds experience that has become popular amongst other Granite Belt wineries. If you’re not familiar with the Strange Birds philosophy, it is the name given to alternative wine varieties grown on the Granite Belt. Wine may only be classed so if it represents less than one per cent of Australia’s vines. With this approach at the forefront of their wine-making mission, your visit to this welcoming Queensland winery is well worth the drive!

O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards | Canungra

There’s so much to explore at O’Reilly’s and their vineyards are not to be missed! Open seven days a week with picnic baskets, cheeseboards and wine-tasting paddles available, it’s a truly wonderful spot to stop and unwind one afternoon with your friends. Take a stroll through the vineyards, or book an alpaca feeding session too, because what wine tasting is complete without an alpaca cuddle? This has got to be one of the best wineries in Queensland for an all-around amazing experience.

Tobin Wines | Ballandean

The place to visit for a taste of the Granite Belt in a glass! Tobin Wines is one of the best wineries in Queensland to visit for a chance to taste premium limited edition, handcrafted wines. Focusing on an ‘old-world’ approach to winemaking, all respect is paid to the vineyard to ensure a quality drop from its absolute origins. Says winemaker Adrian Tobin of his work; “No winemaker is gifted enough to make those wonderful flavours & aromas - all of the work happens out there, in the vineyard”. With varietals limited to 100-160 cases each per year, we recommend high-tailing it to Tobin Wines to taste the best of Ballandean’s wine on your next adventure.

Witches Falls Winery

Witches Falls Winery | Mount Tamborine

One of Mount Tamborine’s most popular tourist spots is Witches Falls Winery, now one of Queensland’s largest wine producers. What makes Witches Falls so special is the philosophy they embody, merging traditional techniques and a minimal intervention approach, with state-of-the-art procedures to guarantee a beautiful result. Using natural yeast to yield wines with interesting textures and character, we recommend trying the Wild Ferment range for a true Witches Falls Winery experience.
