Witches Falls Winery is a small yet bold winery, lacking in pretension, with a hint of distinction on the nose and excellence on the palate.
Located on Tamborine Mountain in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Witches Falls Winery produce three distinctive ranges of wines: Granite Belt, Wild Ferment and Prophecy, each providing a unique look at different styles and practices in both viticulture and winemaking.
A majority of the fruit is sourced from the Granite Belt – Queensland’s premier wine growing region. The Granite Belt is located on the Great Dividing Range 200km South West
of Brisbane and 95km inland. The key to the Granite Belt Region is said to lie in its high altitude (between 600 and 1000m above sea level). This high elevation means that the region is considered a cool climate region not only by Queensland standards, but also by worldwide viticultural standards. The altitude combined with the free draining Granite soils makes the region ideally suited to growing grapes.
Jon Heslop, the owner and visionary of Witches Falls Winery, has been actively involved in the winemaking industry since 1995. During this time, Jon has worked in the Barossa and Hunter Valley in Australia as well as internationally in Burgundy, France and the Napa Valley in the USA. While he has a respect for traditional winemaking practices, he also has a passion for innovation and it is this combination that has brought the Witches Falls Wild Ferment range into fruition.
