A visit to a wine region can be an interesting and rewarding experience, with each winery offering visitors a unique opportunity to sample their best wines on offer. The South Burnett is no exception. Wine buffs will love exploring the vineyards of this new wine producing region, where they will have the opportunity to experience a full range of white and red wines, ports and meads. However, you don't have to be a connoisseur to appreciate these award winning wines, you just have to enjoy good wine as much as good company. With its warm summer days, crisp cool nights and fertile soils, the South Burnett is a haven of vineyards stretching from Goomeri in the north, through the Murgon region to the Bunya Mountains, Kingaroy and south to Nanango. Along the way vineyards can be seen alongside olive groves, timber plantations, orchards and traditional agriculture. This palate of contrasting colours makes for breathtaking scenery and each stop provides a new experience. The South Burnett is considered a 'boutique' region with small vineyards concentrating on quality wine products. Visitors will enjoy sampling the best wines on offer at one of the cellar doors, while learning first hand about winemaking from the vineyard and winery staff.
