Mason Wines is a family owned wine business, situated in the Granite Belt in Queensland, 10 minutes south of Stanthorpe, 15 minutes north of Tenterfield on the New England Highway. The Winery is dedicated to producing a wine of which Queensland can be proud. Mason Wines recently built a state of the art winery which was completed in early 2009. It has temperature and humidity control of the wine storage areas and barrel rooms. The new winery has allowed Mason Wines to more closely control the wine quality.
Robert and Kim Mason set strict criteria when searching for land suited to viticulture: a long history of commercial stone fruit production with well-drained, deep soil. The first property was purchased in 1997, the vines planted thereafter. A second property was purchased in 2000, and a cellar door was constructed. They have planted cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, shiraz, merlot, viognier, semillon, verdelho, sauvignon blanc and petit verdot - Yet another Queenslander on the ascent!
Mason Wines Cellar Door Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy a lazy lunch by the fire, stroll through the rolling vineyards or just stop in for a great coffee and cake. Enjoy watching the sun set over the mountains while indulging in fine wine and fresh, seasonal, local cuisine. If you are looking for a winery with a restaurant, this is definitely the place to visit. You will not be disappointed with their wide range of the diverse menu, and with its tastefully designed looks out to the rear gardens and the glass pane windows allow plenty of sun in. There is certain warmth about it.
