Symphony Hill Wines owner, Ewen Macpherson, defied old school wine snobs and dared to believe he could make world class wines in a wine region of unfulfilled potential – the Granite Belt, QLD.


Our top gun winemaker, Abraham De Klerk, has made wine in some of the best wineries in the world. From making super Tuscan wines at Sassicaia in Italy to a vintage at Chateau Clos du Clocher in Pomerol, working with 3 generations of French vignerons, in close proximity to famous Chateau Petrus and Le Pin- oo-la-la.


Our flagship red is their 5-star Reserve Shiraz which has won top gold medals at both Sydney and Melbourne Royal Wine Shows, and has been nominated for two trophies at 2011 Royal Melbourne for Best Single Vineyard Wine and Best Shiraz trophies. The Jimmy Watson winner beat them for the Best Rhone Style Shiraz trophy with the narrowest of margins.


This neo-vino winery mixes it up with old school royalty when their Shiraz wine was selected to be served to the Royal couple when they visited Brisbane in early 2014.


The cherry on the having-your-cake-and-eat-it moment is also winning big with white wine. Our flagship white is their 5-star Gewurztraminer which has been awarded Trophies at National Wine Show of Australia, Royal Queensland and Royal Melbourne Wine Shows.


Q Wine styles:

Sparkling, still whites, sweet white, still reds, sweet red.

Q 5 Star Winery

Rated 5 star winery by James Halliday with 49 wines rated 4 stars or more for last 5 years. Only QLD winery to win gold medals at Royal Sydney & Royal Melbourne Wine Shows.

Q Why visit us?

Come for a taste of our wines and leave with the thrill of discovering wines that excite. Create memories of a great wine that lasts forever. Many of our visitors become part of our Symphony Hill family where we share the joy and passion of great wine. Those who join our wine club are rewarded with wines made exclusively for them.

Just like the seasons of the Granite Belt continually change, so to each visit is a new experience where new vintages are released and celebrated.

Enjoy our contemporary, funky cellar door with chandelier and reupholstered red leather 1960s whistle lounge. Savour our strange bird wines that are hard to pronounce like our Royal Melbourne Top Gold medal winning Gewurztraminer or discover our flagship Reserve Shiraz served to the royal couple when they visited Brisbane in April, 2014.

Q Our Tasting and Barrell Room

You will love our contemporary tasting room complete with chandelier and 1960s original whistler lounge which has been reupholstered bright red. We love to spoil our guests, so all our reserve range of wines are open and waiting for your visit! If you would like to a tour of the winery just let us know and we would love to show off our state of the art winemaking equipment.

Our tasting room is open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm.

Our barrel room provides the most wonderful wine tasting ambience for your next group visit to Symphony Hill.

Please contact us if you would like to book a group wine tasting in our barrel room. Let us treat you to some of the best wines in Queensland with an ambience to match! There is no cost for this service, simply give us a few days notice.

Brilliant cellar door wine tasting experience

5/ 5

Really the best cellar door in Stanthorpe, excellent wines and knowledgeable hosts (thanks Mardy). The granite belt has come of age and makes some fantastic wines with Symphony Hill leading the way.
