Wine & Dine

Wine

Enjoy boutique wines made from grapes grown right here on the property.

The south-east Queensland climate allows for a diverse range of grape varieties, making the Scenic Rim one of the fastest growing wine regions in the country.

Petit verdot, shiraz, grenache and mourvèdre grapes are all grown right here in our vineyard. The grapes are sent to a local winemaker who does our bottling and distilling. We primarily make boutique red wines and port but we do stock Verdelho, Marsanne, Semillion Sauvignon, sparkling whites and a sparkling red sourced from other Scenic Rim vineyards.

All our cottages come stocked with a full range of our wines, and of course you’ll always find some chilled for you in the fridge.

Wine is available for sale from our premises however our wines are not available in retail outlets. Mail orders can be arranged for individual bottles or case lots, postage costs additional.

Tasting notes from Peter Scudamore Smith, Master of Wine

We recently had Peter Scudamore Smith, Master of Wine rate some of our wine.

“The Barney Creek Shiraz Mourvedre Grenache was quite amazing. It is a deep-flavoured red and the only way you can taste it is to go there and stay in one of the cottages. Grange buyers look for flavours like that, it’s a real mouthful of wine. I had a fun time travelling around the region. The wines really respect where they come from and have a real sense of place about them. Everything is in sync – the vista, the taste and the people presenting them.” – Peter Scudamore Smith (read full story here or watch video clip from Channel 7’s The Great Day Out)

Dine

At Barney Creek Vineyard Cottages we like to let you set the pace.

Meals are supplied as hampers, allowing you to dine in your own cottage or in a lovely spot outside whenever you’re ready. BBQ & breakfast hampers will be placed in your cottage fridge prior to your arrival ready to cook at your leisure. Slow cooked meals will be delivered to your cottage between 5-6pm and will be placed in the oven to keep warm if you are not at the cottage.

Hampers include all meats, condiments, vegetables or salads, breads and desserts, and are placed in your fridge. You’ll find everything fully pre-prepared and ready to be enjoyed at your leisure.

Check out our all-inclusive meals and accommodation packages here.

Alternatively you can bring your own supplies from the vast array of local produce providers to cook in your fully equipped kitchen, barbeque al fresco on the verandah or picnic by the creek.

Three working days notice is appreciated if hampers are required but we usually have something available if you suddenly need the night off during your stay. Please choose the same option for all guests for each course as single meals are not available.

…The staff are friendly, highly organised and provided a lovely evening meal for us. Delightful to relax with a fabulous wine in one hand, some nibbles in the other hand while taking in spectacular views, the perfect trilogy!

Sandy and Marty are doing a wonderful job with this place, the gardens and lawns were perfect, and everything in the cottages was spot on.
