Details:Opened February 2003, Hill of Promise Estate is a family owned and operated boutique winery and cellar door nestled in the heart of the Isis District. Located on the Bruce Highway just 4 kilometres south from Childers, we are half way between Brisbane and Rockhampton, 30 minutes from Maryborough and Bundaberg and 40 minutes from Hervey Bay. Our grapes are hand-picked and our wines are made in the traditional Old-world way utilising the natural wild yeasts of the vineyard.
The cellar door offers a truly personalised wine-tasting and sales experience.
Bed and breakfast accommodation is also available on site with two cosy, semi self- contained timber cottages.
