Welcome to Crane Wines
Crane Wines is a small, visitor friendly, family owned and operated boutique winery, B&B accommodation and vineyard. The grand old colonial homestead, and the quaint rustic cellar door are perched high on the Booie Range, with breathtaking views east over the valley. Cranes is situated just 10 kms from Kingaroy in the beautiful South Burnett region of South East Queensland (map). With an elevation of close to 600 metres, and with warm days and cool nights, the climate is always several degrees cooler than Brisbane, and without the humidity of our steamy capital.
Crane Wines and Kingaroy are less than an hour by car to the majestic rainforests of the Bunya Mountains, and only an hour to the northern end of our South Burnett Wine Trail, the Bjelke-Petersen Dam and Lake Boondooma, and so it makes perfect sense to base your self here in Kingaroy while you explore the many and varied attractions of the South Burnett region.
Cranes was the very first winery to open it’s doors in this young but growing wine region, and so can rightly claim the distinction of the “South Burnett’s Premier Winery and Cellar Door”. We offer visitors “a wine to suit all palates”, in sweet, dry, sparkling and fortified wine styles. Many medals and trophys have been won over the years. On most days the winemaker is the fellow behind the counter in the cellar door,(or his other half), and is they are happy to answer all the questions about winemaking you have always wanted to ask. Dylan, the winery’s greeting dog will meet you, tail a-wagging, in the car park and escort you to the cellar door (where he will either rub against you for pats, or roll on his back for tummy scratches).
At the Cellar Door wine lovers are offered a taste of our current range, while non wine drinkers browse the large range of home made jams and chutneys and other tasty treats, and try some of the popular vegetable based moisturisers made on the property. Visitors are welcome also to relax on the porch, enjoying their choice of wine with one of Crane’s legendary gourmet platters, while watching the wrens and finches playing in the gardens.
Cheers for now, and we hope to see you here at Crane’s soon.
