The Hinterland surrounding Queensland's famous Gold Coast is one of Australia's fastest growing wine regions and is becoming well-known for its vineyards and boutique wineries.
Centrally-located half-way between and less than an hour from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Albert River Wines is located at the historic property of Tamborine House.
Established in 1868, Tamborine House lent its name to neighbouring Tamborine Mountain in 1892 and has long been a famous local landmark.
The Hinterland of Queensland's famed Gold Coast is often referred to as 'The Green Behind The Gold' - a fitting description given the scenic vistas and panoramic views of the region.
Nestled at the foot of Tamborine Mountain, Albert River Wines is a unique day-tour destination for both residents and visitors to the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
Enjoy the pleasure of wine-tasting with an opportunity to learn more about wine-making and enjoy fine dining, as well as the chance to discover more about the property's colourful history.
Both the winery and the vineyards are situated high on the hill with panoramic views of Tamborine Mountain.
Terroir is the French term for that magical combination of the right soil and weather conditions so essential to producing good wine grapes.
At Albert River Wines, well-drained river loam above a sandstone base combined with cool mountain breezes and long, sunny days provide an ideal micro-climate in which the specially-selected grape varieties flourish.
In the tradition of the grand vineyards of the old world, the ends of the vine rows are planted with roses.
