Castle Glen Australia » Distilleries, Tours and Wineries
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!
Castle Glen AustraliaCastle Glen Australia
Castle Glen Australia started its life in 1990 with the planting of the Castle Glen Vineyard. In 1994, Cedric designed and built “The Castle” – an iconic building sitting in the heart of the Granite Belt. Having conquered the art of making Table Wine, Fortified Wine and Sparkling Wine (Technique Traditionelle), Cedric started making fruit wines using fruit from the local growers in the district.
Traditional English style Liqueurs and the ‘World First’ Crème Liqueurs followed to become a large part of the business through the late 1990’s and early 2000’s and now boasts a range of 500 plus truly unique products. Only the freshest naturally ripened fruit, the best quality nuts, chocolate, and spices are shipped into Castle Glen to make these taste sensations. Castle Glen has continued to diversify, and in 2009 became the first Brewery on the Granite Belt. The Castle Glen Distillery was established at the same time and can now boast to be the only Whiskey producer in Queensland.
