The red wine vineyard is at the south of the Granite Belt where the altitude is lower and the temperatures are warmer for the reds.   This strategy has mitigated loss against hail, fire, rain etc.

Our high altitude helps rank us as one of the coolest wine growing regions in Australia, and that, combined with our deep sandy soils helps us produce elegant yet powerfully flavoured wines.  Indeed the Cottonvale vineyard is likely to continue to be the “Highest ★★★★★ 5 Star Winery in Australia”.


Accommodation Cottage, A step back in time…. 1864

A beautiful 3 room cottage is completely lined with red cedar, so that you can smell the ambiance as it would have been last century for our forefathers.

Snuggle up on the leather lounge in front of the fire.   All creature comforts are here, kitchenette, modern bathroom and your bedroom that looks out over the gardens.
