Heritage Estate Wines was established in 1992 by Bryce and Paddy Kassulke, converting an old brick cold stores at Cottonvale (Granite Belt, Queensland) into an atmospheric cellar door and creating a vineyard next door. Since this time Bryce and Paddy have converted and restored an old church which originated in Burleigh Heads but was moved to Mount Tamborine overlooking stunning views of the Gold Coast. Heritage Estate Wines have won many prestigious awards for their wine which offers exquisite taste and consistency. The awards include the 2015 5 star rating by James Halliday in the 2016 Australian Wine Companion and was also named one of the Ten Dark Horse wineries of 2016. A wonderful winery to finish the day out with the option of being able to purchase a great coffee and homemade cakes.
