VINE DIN­ING AD­VEN­TURES

Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | ESCAPE -

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.

MA­SON WINES

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.
