Points of interest

  • Boutique wineries are by definition those whose wines only available directly through the winery - such is the case with Albert River Wines, so a trip to their cellar door is definitely a worthwhile experience.
  • Albert River's winemaker Peter Scudamore-Smith is one of only two “Master of Wines” in Queensland. More impressive, there are only 17 Master of Wines in Australia and just 278 worldwide.
  • Albert River Wines offers a choice of wedding ceremony locations, including Garden Gazebos, an ornately restored Vineyard Chapel and a unique opportunity for Vows amongst the Vines, where you can pledge your love surrounded by the beautiful ambience of lush grape vines and the panoramic Mountain Views (just perfect accompanied by a solo instrumentalist).
  • Onsite wedding receptions are held in the historic Auchenflower House Ballroom or Tamborine House Verandah, which boast stunning 1800’s architectural design and sweeping views of the vineyard, manicured gardens and the mountains of Tamborine beyond.
