The South Burnett wine region is home to Queensland’s biggest vineyard at Clovely Estate.
With varieties such as Chardonnay, Verdelho, Sangiovese, Shiraz and Merlot; visitors are spoilt for choice with wine tasting in the South Burnett. It’s also no wonder South Burnett wines have been featured in Queensland State Parliament dinners and at many leading Queensland restaurants. They are also being exported to Asia and other overseas destinations.
The South Burnett Wine trail is made up of two components; the northern area which includes the wineries and cellar doors of Clovely Estate, Moffatdale Ridge, Dusty Hill, Tipperary Estate and Bridgeman Downs Cellars. The second is located in Kingaroy area which includes wineries and cellar doors of Crane Wines, Kingsley Grove Estate, Taabinga Station, Pottique Lavender Farm and Taste South Burnett.
When you step inside the wineries and cellar door you’re drawn to experiencing an in depth wine tasting. Cellar door staff are passionate about what they sell and offer their knowledge during your tastings. Some cellar doors offer a number of other tastings including South Burnett produced Ports, Liqueurs and the fashionable sparkling wines.
What goes well with wine? Add some local cheese, olives and capers and you’ll savour the South Burnett. Some wineries also produce olive oil and offer tasting of it too.
If you’re wanting a “true” wine experience then check out the wine tours that are on offer at Kingsley Grove Estate and Tipperary Estate. These tours take in the vineyards and inside the winery where you can see how the wine is actually made.
