Old Caves Winery has a simple philosophy about wine - "A good wine is one that you can drink and enjoy".
Situated on the New England Highway, just north of Stanthorpe, Old Caves specialise in producing "everyday" wines, non-vintage styles that are inexpensive enough for people to enjoy on a regular basis.
A Small range of vintage wines are also produced at the winery. We are one of the smaller, commercial wineries in the Granite Belt area.
Old Caves has grape planting covering 12 acres, including varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, White Muscat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz. We also have contract growers to fulfil all our grape variety needs.
With the high altitude, cool nights and sandy soil, the wines being produced in this district should develop a clean fruit character and a good depth of body.
Old Caves wines range from sweet to dry white and red table wines and fortified wines. The winery has something for the whole family; warm hospitality all year round, wine tastings and sales, childrens area, picnic areas, barbecues and a log fire for our cold winter days.
Old Caves if a family business run by David, his wife Shirley and their three sons, Tony, Jeremey and Nathan. They also have hired help for the busy season.
