Brisbane’s first micro-winery!
🔥Double tap, SAVE, Swipe ⬅️
Officially opened for business today, @citywinerybne
at 11 Wandoo St Fortitude Valley, is a playground for wine lovers right in the heart of Brisbane.
But it’s more than just a micro-winery. It also houses a bar (of course!), cellar door, a restaurant, and private dining, as well as being able to turn the winery into a function space.
Founders David Cush (a former Tasmanian winemaker), and partner Adam Penberthy source high quality grapes from across Australia, selecting fruit from where it grows best across the country. The results, are small batch, handmade, wines, "produced with love, care and respect for the environment in which they've come from".
Chef Travis Crane, will head up the paddock – to – plate food philosophy which means sourcing the best quality produce as locally as possible, preparing it respectfully and cooking it simply over wood fire.
The winery itself is also focused on visitors participating in the winemaking process, with workshops and tastings on offer.
We had no idea this was Brisbane’s first urban winery since 1860, and in the 1800s, there were over 350 acres of grape vines planted across the city.
