Our Wines & Cellar Door
Wine by Barney Creek Vineyard Cottages
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.
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.
Cellar door open to the public, Saturday & Sunday 10am to 4pm April through to August. A 10% discount applies for case sales. Mail orders can be arranged for individual bottles or case lots, postage costs additional.
