Stanthorpe

Two and a half hours drive south-east of Brisbane, discover Queensland's premier wine region in the Granite Belt - where they've been making boutique wine since the 1870s in the cooler microclimate temperatures.

Centered on the town of Stanthorpe, which sits 700 to 1200 metres above sea level, holds the status of some of the highest altitude wines in Australia. It's known to even snow occasionally in winter.

Meet the families who've lived here for generations and sample their hand-picked white varieties of verdelho, semillon, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. Red lovers may choose instead to swirl classic full flavoured varieties like shiraz, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. If you don't feel like driving you could cycle, hire a chauffeur or join a tour for the day.

Lush seasonal fruit and vegetables thrive in the granite soil, making the region also renowned for its gourmet produce. Purchase stone fruit, apples, figs, olives and berries from roadside carts and create the perfect decadent cheese platter of locally cured meats and warm artisan bread washed down with an apple cider.

Pair your food and wine on the Strange Bird alternative wine trail with different blends like viognier, mourvedre, gewürztraminer and tempranillo. Foodies can also join a cooking school or stone preservation class and impress your friends at your next dinner party.
