The Heritage Restaurant » Wineries, Breweries and Distilleries
Tamborine Mountain boasts award-winning boutique wineries, breweries and an iconic distillery. And what better way to see the Mountain than taking a tasting tour around many of these cellar doors, where you can often meet the business owner as you sample their wares.
So allow your palate to be tantalised whilst taste-testing the local artisanal drinks. On offer are a huge range of beers, wines and spirits, all lovingly produced by a local vintner, brewer or distiller. Discover the science behind these traditional winery, brewery or distillery crafts and the wondrous individual flavours that are created on Tamborine Mountain.
Sip high quality, hand-crafted liqueurs, vodkas and schnapps then move onto unique cellar doors – each one different but offering fantastic wines. Last but not least is the beer tasting of the local micro-breweries, often sold at the local pubs and restaurants.
You’ll find all of these locations on our map, allowing you to plan your wine, beer or spirit tour, or simply join a local tour operator that can then transport you on a memorable cellar door tour. Enjoy!

History of the Church
Tamborine Mountain’s most prestigious wedding venue, Heritage Wines has everything you need to create a special and memorable wedding day event. Formerly the Infant Saviour Catholic Church once located in Burleigh Heads, the church was saved from demolition and carefully moved to the rainforest surrounds of Tamborine Mountain, where it was lovingly restored to create a wedding venue of unsurpassed old-world elegance. Perched high on a hillside of magical Tamborine Mountain, your wedding guests will enjoy sweeping views over Queensland’s Gold Coast hinterland and out to the Pacific Ocean.
Among its classic features is the stunning cedar staircase for the bride and groom’s entry and in the winter months the magnificent stone open fireplace is lit generating a romantic warm and cosy atmosphere, when the cold night mists are swirling.
