Overview

We make award winning wines from Tropical Fruit and no this does not mean they are sweet and sticky. They range from very dry wines to ports and they are all commercial standard. The wines are single-fruit wines, not blends. All the fruits we use have big flavours and we grow them in the organic way and in our own orchard. The flavours of the fruits are retained in the wine.

Hi Doj.C Sorry for keeping you waiting on that occasion. During the wet season, we are flat out building, fixing, cleaning and sweating so we have to leave the Cellar Door for periods of time, but we always show up. Thank you for your compliments....More

"It's not sweet." Surrounded by bush and greens the orchard is presented with various exotic fruits. Depending on the season you visit, you may see them fower or fruit. The tasting is casual with lots of information on the wine and possible food pairings. This...More

Never expected such a gem. I really wanted, but was restrained, to purchase twice as many bottles. These are really fruity wines and the fortified options (eso. the cocoa one) are amazing. This slightly hard to find spot (use Google maps) is well worth the...More

Hi Anthony, yes really fruity wines but the table wines are dry not sweet. An innovation in fruit wines. If people are using Google maps they are not always correct in spite of many efforts to get them to correct. Read Shannonvale Road for Ponzo...More

We stopped here today, and it was well worth a visit. The wine tasting was fantastic. We were guided through the wines and as a non wine drinker it was such an informative experience. I would highly recommend a visit.
