There are a number of highly regarded and respected wineries located on Tamborine Mountain.
They all adopt a fairly straight forward philosophy in the utilisation of traditional wine making practices to create wines of excellent quality.
From making the decision to remove the grapes from the vine at that exact right time through the process of crushing, pressing, clarification of juice, fermentation, maturation and blending, to that time line decision to bottle, the wine maker controls the dynamic process that is wine making.
We rely upon our wine makers to bring together the intensity of aromas and flavours, the complexity, balance, finesse, structure and mouthfeel that produces a quality wine. The local wine makers are passionate about wine and excel at their craft.
If wine is part of your DNA, then we know full well that you will enjoy your wine tour of Tamborine Mountain.
Cellar Doors are open daily from 10 am to 4 pm for wine tasting and sales.
