Mason Wines is a family owned wine business, situated in the Granite Belt, dedicated to producing a wine of which Queensland can be proud.
Our aim is to develop quality wines with distinct regional characteristics.
In 1997 we began our search for land in South East Queensland's Granite Belt on which to establish a vineyard.
We only looked at land which had a long history of commercial stone fruit production and was known to be well drained with deep soil.
We selected a stone fruit farm in Rees Road, Ballandean which we believed would be ideal for a vineyard.
In 1998 we set about removing the stone fruit trees and replacing them with vines.
We planted the best grafted vines available.
In 2000 we bought a second stone fruit farm, situated on the corner of Booth Lane and the New England Highway, for conversion to a vineyard.
This property also fulfilled our criteria for land with a proven long history of stone fruit production and well drained deep soil.
A cliché in the industry, it is none the less true that great wine is only made from great fruit.
We are fastidious in producing great fruit and equally fastidious in all aspects of wine production.
