The Sunshine Coast is a geographically stunning wine region featuring boutique wineries and vineyards producing premium award winning wines. The cellar doors and restaurants of this region offer the visitor a personalised and varied wine tourism experience. The Sunshine Coast wineries are situated a short hour from Brisbane and 10 minutes from Noosa.
The Sunshine Coast wine region is one of the most diverse and fastest growing wine regions in Queensland. It encompasses vineyards situated high up in the cooler climate Blackall Range, Kenilworth and Traveston areas through to the milder climates in the valleys near the coast.
This diversity of micro climates allow for a wide range of grape varieties to be grown within the region. These range from plantings of Shiraz, Chambourcin and Chardonnay through to Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. All are small boutique vineyards who hand-pick their grapes and hand prune their vines. The personalised attention in the vineyards allow for wines that are distinctive in character.
The cellar doors are filled with people passionate about their vineyards and wine, and who love to share the experience of Queensland wines for the Queensland life style. With 10 cellar doors, the region offers diverse tourism experiences. From verandah dining overlooking vines, barrel tastings in the cellar doors, relaxing with a glass of great Queensland wine by the harbour or having a break in some of the gorgeous vineyard cottages and guest houses, there is something for everyone.
The Sunshine Coast wineries celebrate the enjoyment of wine and good food. Many of the wineries offer restaurants, cheese platters, gourmet picnics and winery and vineyard tours.
So, if you're looking for a relaxing wine experience amongst some of the most scenic countryside in Queensland, the Sunshine Coast wine region is for you. Daily tours of the wineries are available from both the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.
