The 5 Best Wineries Within Driving Distance of the Gold Coast

May has been declared the official month of wine!

For the sixth year in a row, Aussie Wine Month celebrates the world-class wine produced in our very own backyard.

While we wish every month could be Aussie Wine Month - it's not. So why not check out some of the best vineyards within driving distance while you still have a good excuse to "test" some of Australia's tastiest fine wines?

We've put together a list of the 5 best places close to the coast to celebrate what is possibly our favourite month - check it out!

1. Sirromet Winery

Where: 850 Mount Cotton Road, Mount Cotton, south east of Brisbane
Drive time: 50mins

Sirromet Winery overlooks Moreton Bay and Stradbroke - the perfect backdrop for an afternoon of wine tastings, premium tastings and their full winery tour. With live entertainment on the weekends and plenty of tasty food options all week long, this place is a wine enthusiast's dream!

2. Cedar Creek Estate

Where: 104—144 Hartley Road, North Tamborine
Drive time: 50mins

Not only is this place the perfect wedding location, the Cedar Creek Estates Vineyard and Winery is a must-visit if you're ever trekking up Mount Tamborine. There's a glow worm cave, rainforest walks and of course the cellar door is open daily with a range of Australia's finest whites & reds.

3. O'Reilley's Canungra Valley Vineyards

Where: 852 Lamington National Park Road, Canungra
Drive time: 45mins

Just around the corner you'll find O'Reilley's expansive property, stretching along Canungra Creek in possibly the most relaxing and breathtaking setting for a day of wine and gourmet food. They will supply you with a full picnic basket so you can sit by the creek and enjoy the serenity!

4. Witches Falls Winery

Where: 79 Main Western Road, North Tamborine
Drive time: 50mins

If you like Witches Chase Cheeses on Mount Tamborine, why not kill two birds with one stone and cruise around the corner to Witches Falls Winery. You can taste a flight of six locally-grown wines for just $6!

5. Ocean View Estates

Where: 2557 Mt. Mee Road, Ocean View, near Caboolture
Drive time: 1hrs 45min

The views at Ocean View Estates are definitely worth the extra drive-time! There are plenty of places to set up here for a picnic, and plenty of award-winning wines to accompany you. This one might be your best option if your other half isn't big on wine, because they do their own craft beer as well! If the distance puts you off you'll be happy to know you're also welcome to stay there for the night in one of their luxury cottages. Why not make your winery date a little trip?


If you don't have the time to get to one of these amazing wineries I guess you could do what you would any other month - just drink your wine at home!
