Scenic Rim Wineries
There are a number of highly regarded and respected wineries located on Tamborine Mountain and within the Scenic Rim. 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.
Take a specialized wine tour or plan a day trip to some of our great wineries. Here is but a brief glimpse of what you can expect.
