The Wine Trail

There are a number of highly regarded and respected winery outlets located on Tamborine Mountain. They all adopt a fairly straightforward 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.

 

Cellar Doors are open daily from 10 am to 4 pm for wine tasting and sales.

There are 7 wineries offering a diverse variety of wines, cellar door outlets in Gallery Walk, a great craft brewery and Australia's most awarded Distillery.

The Winery Trail starts at our doorstep here at Amore.

Go to the Wine Glass Icons on the map for trail information on the individual outlets.

St, Bernards Hotel

Robert Muir built St Bernards House in 1881 on the site of the present Council Quarry on Kaiser Road, as an accommodation house for its managers and staff. He bought almost 2000 acres of heavy scrubland at the top of the southern end of the mountain intending to grow sugar cane when the land was cleared. Mr. Muir was drowned in the flooded Logan River at Yatala in 1887.

Following owners started a village settlement and moved St Bernards to its present site in 1898. During its history, St Bernards has had many varied roles including Post Office receiving centre, in 1915 it became a licensed property, the 1920’s saw St Bernards as a convalescent Private Hotel and an accommodation House for up to 100 guests. The tariff was three pound fifteen shillings per week.

What a journey. Opening a street American style bbq eating place on Tamborine Mountain.

After 4 months of renovating an old Thai/Mexican place (interesting combo), filling the new space with timbers, a stone top bar, chesterfield seating and some crazy art – they are finally open.

The first place on the Mountain to seriously offer cocktails and fine beverages, matched in with dry rubbed Ribs = time to feast.

Enjoy slow cooked meats and fine beverages. At Hickory it's all about falling deeply into leather couches and feasting to fill your heart.

If you love food that you can really get your hands into then Hickory is the place for you. Don't be precious... pick up those ribs with your hands and get covered in sauce. Sure, there's a finger bowl for you - but don't you wanna just lick your fingers first.

Love beer? Hickory has an amazing local IPA on tap and if you are lucky they regularly have their brilliant ginger beer as well. The tap range is available in small, big and mega sizes. If you are feeling like something in a bottle they have a great range of award winning beers to choose from.

Every week there are new and exciting cocktails. After a refreshing light drink? -   jump into their Jammy Dodger. If you are keen to play then check out the Ginger Pirate, the Kraken Iced Tea or the @ JJT slingshot.

One of Many TripAdvisor Reviews

“Fast Food With A Difference”

 

''Nothing about this restaurant is slow! The service is fast and impeccable. Food is freshly prepared and served fast. Tables are cleaned fast and efficiently.Yet somehow, with all that speed and hurry... the restaurant still feels calm and relaxed - anything but a 'Fast food Outlet'.

The food is certainly prepared fresh (you can peek behind and see it all happening in the kitchen and right in front of you at the sushi bar).


The flavours are distinct. All the classic Chinese and Japanese dishes are on offer, and even with the myriad of sauces and aromas you still get served a dish that has it's own clean, distinct, crisp taste - the hallmark of freshly prepared.


The staff are very 'child friendly' and easily absorb the foibles of young ones (spilt water, messy seats, etc). Our family has returned time and time again to this restaurant and will continue to do so."

Mediterranean

Georges Paragon Restaurant - just a 5 minute stroll from Amore.

A Seafood Restaurant with a Mediterranean Flavour which is very popular with our guests.It does of course have a diverse menu incorporating meat and pasta dishes.

Adjacent to the restaurant proper is a courtyard cafe area where you can have a great Devonshire Tea or a light snack.

A couple of Tripadvisor reviews follow:

''It proved impossible for us to pass up the $6.90 tea and scone offer, and we're glad we stopped in because there were so many other tasty-sounding treats on the menu that we'll definitely stop by again. The setting was like a little courtyard, complete with soft blankets at each table which was a nice touch given it can get cool up in the mountains. The scones were the lightest, fluffiest we have ever had, nothing like the thick dense ones you might find elsewhere that sink in your stomach like a rock. These were cloud-like and just heavenly to eat. A delicious little tomato pastry and hot tea and coffee completed our morning tea, and overall it was a very tasty stopover that didn't hurt the hip pocket. Would happily recommend.''

and another

"We drove from Binna Burra for a spot of shopping along Gallery Walk and stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner. Just lovely! Very generous serves, friendly service and delicious food. Spotless linen and cutlery. Entrees were simple foods, but beautifully presented. Mine was an avocado and prawn mix, sort of a deconstructed version of the old prawn cocktails. It was missing the avocado but the waitress apologized and immediately brought a whole perfect avocado, finely sliced on a separate plate for me. My husband and I shared a Greek tasting platter, which was more than ample for two people. Delicious mixture of haloumi, dolmades, dips, lamb skewers, calamari and so forth. The barbecued octopus was to die for! All four of our party were delighted with the food. Good choice of alcoholic beverages also. Very much enjoyed and wouldn't hesitate to return."

Bavarian Grill Haus

Bavarian Grill Haus offers a warm, friendly and fun atmosphere. Bavarian style food, German beers in a welcoming environment. If you like Bavarian style food try this place out.

Bavarian cuisine is a full on unique culinary experiences that engages and delights all five senses.

Underlining themes in all Bavarian cuisine are the use of fresh produce that is locally sourced and the complementing of the meal with delicious Bavarian beer or Franconian wine (or the Australian equivalent).

Regional cuisine in the various states of the German nation has received increasing attention since the late 19th century.

The 19th century cookbooks included many recipes for soups containing Knödel. The meat recipes were mostly based on beef and veal, where cooked beef was used for everyday meals.

Knödel and noodles were a traditional festive dish in Bavaria. In the late 19th century, chopped pork with Knödel was a typical Bavarian regional dish.

The Munich Weißwurst was "invented" only in 1857. There were few recipes for mixed vegetables in the cookbooks, and stews played hardly any role, but the Pichelsteiner stew is said to be introduced in Eastern Bavaria in 1847.

In the 19th century, the vegetables that most of the Bavarians usually ate were Sauerkraut and beets. French-influenced dishes included Ragouts, Fricassee and "Böfflamott" (Boeuf à la Mode), larded and marinated beef.

You are welcome to embark on a culinary adventure through Bavaria.

Located: 160 Main Western Road Tamborine Mountain.

Three Little Pigs

Three Little Pigs

The most amazing fresh food you could eat and a great dining experience.

The service is outstanding. Beautifully prepared fresh food with their own twist.

Parts of the menu change each day as they only buy the best and freshest produce so if anything is not up to the standard that chefs Chris and Horst demand then it is not added to the menu.

If you elect to dine at “The Pigs” you will be saying to yourself -- What a result that was!

The menu includes dishes such as salt & pepper prawns, pulled pork patties, Tasmanian salmon, and risotto with eggplant. All dishes were available in two portion sizes, perfect if you don't want a huge meal at lunchtime. The desserts are delicious so be prepared. Portions are generous and service is excellent. 

A well run restaurant, with accommodating staff and cheerful and efficient chefs. The pork belly is outstanding and they have a great choice of beer on tap (Sapporo). All wine from a classy wine list available by the glass.

Highly recommended
