They say that when you love what you do it shows.
At Witches Falls their passion is wine – owner and winemaker Jon Heslop loves growing it, making it, drinking it, and matching it with all kinds of foods but most of all, he likes sharing it with friends. Jon takes pride in creating handcrafted wines that you not only love to drink but that also draw you into their world.
Locating the working winery on Tamborine Mountain was also part of the plan. The beautiful Scenic Rim is the ideal destination for visitors doing day trips from Brisbane and the Gold Coast while still being close enough to the Granite Belt region where most of our grapes are grown.
The intimate cellar door is the perfect space to enjoy your wine tasting experience. The large glass windows frame a view into their wonderful world of winemaking and start many a conversation about the process. The gorgeous grounds are dotted with bean bags, picnic rugs and tables – all ready for you to sit, relax and enjoy a glass of wine in the company of friends. With just one phone call we can tailor a picnic to order or alternatively, you are welcome to bring your own.
As wine writer Tony Harper so aptly put it: “Witches Falls wines shine with individuality and confidence melded with regional style.”
And, while Jon and his team makes wine because they love it and not for awards, they are incredibly proud that the winery has achieved a 5 Red Star rating from James Halliday, placing it in the top 10% of wineries in Australia.
