Overview

We make award winning wines from Tropical Fruit and no this does not mean they are sweet and sticky. They range from very dry wines to ports and they are all commercial standard. The wines are single-fruit wines, not blends. All the fruits we use have big flavours and we grow them in the organic way and in our own orchard. The flavours of the fruits are retained in the wine.

Fruit wine is a new and different experience for most of us. Made only from different types of tropical fruit, the tastings are conducted in a delightful and lush green outdoor venue overlooked by a resident kookaburra and conducted by the winemaker. Highlights for me...More

All their fruit wines are dry table wines. They make the wines in the same way as grape wine is made. The tasting was nice and very interesting. I tasted 2 of their whites (mango and lime) and the red one. I don’t like mango...More
