three of the granite belt's finest, within walking distance 

There's no better base than azjure to experience Queensland's premier wine region. azjure is simply surrounded by top wineries - just take an easy walk or drive down Sundown Rd. What's more, the spa studios and the Villa look out across the Ballandean valley to Sirromet's St Jude vineyard as well as Cody's and Smith's vineyards. And of course right by the studios, and around the Villa, is azjure's own piece of Queensland wine history - the oldest Pinot Noir vineyard in the state, which produces our very own azjure Reserve Pinot Noir.

Golden Grove Estate

Golden Grove Estate Vineyard and Winery, is situated in the highlands of the Ballandean Valley, in the heart of Queensland’s premier wine district, the Granite Belt.

The high altitude of 820 metres and cool summer climate make the area ideal for the growing of classic wine grape varieties and production of fine wines. The first vines were planted in 1975 and were followed in recent years by other classic varieties.
The vineyards are planted in a northerly aspect in a combination type soil of decomposed granite with trap rock loam and are drip irrigated from the Accommodation Creek. These attributes contribute to the slow ripening and full development of soft delicate flavours.

Mario and Nita Costanzo, growing grapes for the fresh fruit market, first settled the property in 1946. As the wine industry emerged classic wine grape varieties were planted for the making of commercial wine.

Tobins Wines

At Tobin Wines, they talk about growing our wine, rather than making the wine.

Their winemaking philosophy is undeniably ‘old world’ — all respect is paid to the vineyard, the vine, and the pursuit of perfection in grape quality, with little — if any — reverence paid to the winemaker or winemaking process. Each grape variety is given the spotlight to truely reveal its own unique flavour.

“No wine maker is gifted enough to make those wonderful flavours & aromas — all of the work happens out there, in the vineyard” — Adrian Tobin

The production of the wines is limited to between 100 – 160 cases of each varietal every year. Limited Edition wines express their origins in the rugged and majestic landscape of the Granite Belt making them truly unique.
