TROPICAL FRUIT WINERIES


Dedicated wine lovers may fear that the opportunities for wine tasting in Tropical North Queensland will be limited to a bottle of mass produced Cab Sav from the local liquor store. No? Well, once again Far North Queensland seems determined to surprise and delight... and offer something for everyone. We have found no less than ten Tropical North Queensland wineries; fruit wineries using North Queensland tropical fruits such as mango, banana, lychee, pineapple, passionfruit, black sapote, and pitaya. So pucker up, climb aboard, and get ready for our winery tour...

No this does not mean they are sweet and sticky!

"Hi folks,

We make wine from Tropical Fruits. We have 6 Dry Table wines and 6 Fortified wines and all of them have won a medal from Grape Wine Judges and no they are not sweet and sticky...the wine will taste of the fruit it is made from.

We grow the fruits, make the wine, bottle and label on site.

So the fruits are picked fully ripe meaning that the wines will taste of fruits and they are single fruit wines, not blends.

Shannonvale's fruit is grown in the organic way so no chemicals are used on the fruit trees.

We are open from 10am to 4.30pm every day but during the wet season we are closed on Wednesdays."
