About

Summit Estate Wines, located in northern Stanthorpe on Queensland's Granite Belt, was established in 1997 by a group of people with a common love for wine.

Summit Estate Wines offer award winning wines of elegance and complexity. Our vineyard is planted to mainstream and alternative cultivars, with an emphasis on aromatic Mediterranean & European varieties. Summit Estate is also actively focusing on the highly successful Strange Bird experience that is similarly offered by many Stanthorpe wineries.

We encourage our customers to visit us at our cellar door or visit us at a variety of Queensland shows. Our sit down wine tastings are renowned on the Granite Belt, placing us apart from other Granite Belt wineries. Our wine education sessions in the Aroma Room provide customers with a personalised winery experience and an opportunity to identify the aromas and flavours that are found in our wine. We cater for individuals and large groups and our friendly staff will ensure that you have a wine tasting experience that will stay with you long after you've left our vineyard!

Specialities
