Top 10 Queensland wineries

While Queensland might not be as famous for wine as other states in Australia, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some hidden gems. In fact, there are many Queensland wineries that produce a wide range of high-quality wines, at a really attainable price. So whether you’re a red-lover, prefer a chilled white to cool you down with or want to celebrate with a sparkling, you’re guaranteed to find something to your taste. Here is our list of the 10 best wineries in Queensland.

Witches Falls Winery, Tamborine Mountain

If you're looking for a wine-tasting experience with a difference, head to Witches Falls Winery on Tamborine Mountain. This family-owned and operated winery offers tastings of its award-winning wines, as well as beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. There's also a great cafe on site serving delicious local produce.

Hidden Creek Winery, Ballandean

A visit to Hidden Creek Winery will give you the chance to taste their range of whites, reds and the refreshing, locally grown Pear Cider. But more than that, the cellar door is run by a qualified sommelier and chef who has worked in hatted restaurants — so it’s safe to say you’ll walk away having learned a lot as well as having tasted some delicious wines.

In the heart of Queensland’s wine country you’ll find Ballandean Estate Wines. Known for their award-winning wines (the reds and sparkling are real crowd-favourites!) you can enjoy a tasting in the cellar door or indulge with a glass and a cheese platter by the fire or out on the lawn.

Riversands Winery, St George

If you’re a fan of fortified muscats and port then Riversands Winery is the place to visit. From sweet wines and sparklings through to whites and reds — there are plenty of tipples to be had. The Garden Cafe onsite is a great little oasis in the outback, perfect for a casual bite before you hit the road.

Heritage Estate Winery, Cottonvale

Heritage Estate Winery is known for their range of award-winning, distinctive whites and vintage shiraz, so a visit to the cellar door will please both white and red-drinkers. Admire the antique collectables and furniture and soak up some local history. You can even sit at the 17-seat rosewood and leather table where Queen Victoria declared Queensland a colony back in the 1850s.

Sirromet Winery, Mount Cotton

If you want to immerse yourself in the serenity of the Granite Belt, then a visit to the indulgent Sirromet Winery is the place to go. With three restaurants onsite and the opportunity to book a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the working winery, there are lots of experiences to be had. If you really want something special, book the helicopter flight from Brisbane that lands right on the winery.

Clovely Estate, Moffatdale

The winery and olive grove at Clovely Estate have been owned by the same family for over 100 years and in that time they’ve perfected their range of wines and artisan food. They partner with local producers to celebrate the best ingredients in the region and host several food and wine events per year, including gourmet dinner degustations — matched with their award-winning wines, of course!

Book your accommodation at Ingenia Holidays Noosa, Ingenia Holidays Noosa North or Noosa North Shore Retreat when you visit Clovely Estate.

Ocean View Estates, Ocean View

Only 45 minutes from Brisbane’s CBD, you’ll find Ocean View Estates, a family-run winery known for its viognier, chardonnay, shiraz and ruby cabernet. Take a tour of the winery (and enjoy tastings and matched cheeses as you go) and then follow it up with lunch in the award-winning restaurant that overlooks the lake.

Twisted Gum Wines, Ballandean

More than a business, Tim and Michelle Coelli own Twisted Gum Wines but also live on the winery. Visit the cellar door on the weekend and taste the eight different varietals they have on offer. For the Coelli’s it’s all about quality over quantity as all the vines are pruned by hand and the grapes are all picked by hand too.

Kooroomba Vineyard, Mount Alford

Kooroomba isn’t just a winery, it’s a tourist destination. In addition to the vines, you’ll also find a picturesque lavender farm, farm-to-plate restaurant, wine bar and cellar door. Self-described as a ‘southern France experience’ on the doorstep of Brisbane, the views of the lavender fields and Great Dividing Range will take your breath away. Having won 12 Chef’s Hats the last four years running, you’ll come for the wine but stay for the food.

What is the best wine region in Queensland?

The best wineries in Queensland is a subjective matter, but it’s commonly agreed that the Granite Belt region is the biggest and the best. It produces many high-altitude wines that are internationally recognised, as well as being home to apple orchards and other local artisan farms.


How many wine regions are there in Queensland?

There are two officially recognised wine regions in Queensland — The Granite Belt and the South Burnett — which have 48 and 16 wine producers respectively.


Where is the Granite Belt?

The Granite Belt is about three hours from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast. When it comes to South East Queensland wineries, the Granite Belt is where it’s at! 

How many wineries are in QLD?

While we mentioned above there are two official wine regions, there are (confusingly!) also six ‘unofficial’ ones. There are over 140 wineries in the state in total.


Winery weddings Queensland

There are many beautiful choices when it comes to booking a winery wedding in Queensland. While most will specify whether they offer weddings on their website, your best bet is to contact each venue directly for event information and pricing.
