VINE DINING ADVENTURES
Calculated on liquid assets per populace, Mt Tamborine punches well above its weight. With a crowd of cellar doors, brewery and distillery tastings, exploring is thirsty work (and you may need a designated driver if you drop into them all).
FORTITUDE BREWING CO.
165 Long Road
This brewery boasts 15 taps pouring from the range of Fortitude and Noisy Minor beers all made on-site. They also sell filled growlers and packaged beers.
TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN DISTILLERY
87-91 Beacon Rd Take this time warp back to Tudor England to sample a smorgasbord of liqueurs and spirits with a homegrown twist. Lemon Myrtle Liqueur, with its bright citrus bouquet, is one of the favourites, but I couldn’t resist the bittersweet Jaffa Liqueur and oh-sosmooth Butter Caramel.
WITCHES FALLS WINES
79 Main Western Rd
The cellar-door crew will guide you through flights of their signature vinos, perfect with a locally made cheeseboard.
32 Hartley Road
Mason’s Mt Tamborine outlet offers a fine snapshot of Queensland wines. The old winery and barrel room has been transformed into a restaurant with a covered alfresco deck — the perfect spot for pairings.
