Whiskey Gully Wines is in the heart of the Granite Belt set on a hill east of the New England Highway at Severnlea just 5 minutes south of Stanthorpe.

The cellar door is in a colonial homestead building, Beverley, which dates back to the late 1880s. The vineyard was established in 1997 and the cool climate and granitic, well-drained soils are ideal for premium wine grape production. Current varieties include French colombard, chardonnay, malbec, cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and black muscat which are used to produce elegant, fruit-driven wines with many trophies and medals awarded to them.

The cellar door is open Friday to Tuesday from 10am to 5pm.

The Restaurant is open on Saturday nights only, for degustation dinners.  These dinners are by pre-booking only.

Q About Us

John, Denice and Emily Arlidge purchased Beverley in 1997 and established the vineyard and winery.

Since then, Whiskey Gully Wines has won many trophies and medals. The winery was awarded 4 1/2 stars in the 2009 James Halliday Companion To Wine.

Set on a hill east of the New England Highway at Severnlea, Beverley Homestead looks out across the Severn Valley and the ranges that define it.

Beverley Station was one of the Granite Belt’s early grazing properties, established in the 1870s.

Originally 2500 acres, it extended both sides of the river and formed part of a mining lease.

Early records show it was owned by Dr Lane, of Stanthorpe, and Paul Aplin, one of the Aplin family who mined tin in the area. Glen Aplin, the village south of Severnlea, was named after Paul’s brother.

Q The Bush Cottages

The Hitching Rail and The Opera House are architect-designed, with luxury conveniences, set well apart from the homestead and each other, creating space and a sense of freedom. Snug wood heaters keep winter nights warm and outdoor settings take advantage of the long summer days. The cottages are air-conditioned.

Q Beverley Vineyard Restaurant

Beverley is Whiskey Gully Wines' cellar door and restaurant. Sit on the verandah or inside this fine colonial building built in the early 1870s and enjoy creative, tasty meals, our finest award-winning wines and, on many occasions, live music.

Originally one of the district's grazing stations, Beverley has cedar fittings, iron lace work and magnificent open fire places. It is set on a hill with superb views down the Severn Valley. There is a formal garden, a tree garden, an orchard and our vineyard to enjoy plus our farm animals.

Activities include dining, wine tasting, walking, enjoying the garden, impromptu concerts and chilling out. We are open seven days most of the year and there is generally no need to make lunch bookings. Friday and Saturday nights are our big nights. Dinner bookings are essential.

Call 07 4683 5100 or email denice@whiskeygullywines.com.au

Q a la carte and the Beverley Banquet

We serve a la carte luncheons from 11am each day. We cater for travellers, visitors to the district and local people.

During the week we serve an a la carte menu at night although, by booking in advance, you can enjoy our famous degustation-style Beverley Banquet.

The Beverley Banquet is served exclusively each Saturday night. It is a multi-course "chef's choice" menu and it has proven to be extremely popular. Chef John favours elegant French-style food and sauces and local produce features prominently.

Superb wine, dine and hospitality!

5/ 5

We had one of the best nights possible at Whisky Gully Wines. Denise and John opened up to serve us dinner: two superb courses for $45 in front of the open fire. When then John started working his way through his guitar collection, singing and playing to entertain us, this delightful and engaging addition made our night even better! The wine, which we had tasted the day before, was even better than we had thought — with the food and company. There were seven in our group. Some have travelled all over the world … even in comparison to the best the world can offer our night at Whisky Gully was up there. Thanks Denise and John for your warmth and hospitality. We loved it!
