About Aventine Wines

THE WINERY
Our winemaking style is traditional, using indigenous yeasts, and minimal interference. Apart from traditional styles, we also make non-traditional, non-commercial wine styles. These are enjoyed by many people, especially those who enjoy something special.

THE GARDENS
Our gardens are very much a work in progress. It has been more than challenging to attempt to establish gardens during a drought which has lasted 3 years.

We commenced by retrieving old farm equipment from the far reaches of our farm. Most of this equipment comprised horse drawn ploughs, wagons, carts, and sulkies. These items had simply been abandoned down through the years as they were superseded by new technology such as tractors, trucks and cars.

Many of these items are now located in our gardens. An excellent example of a sulky in original condition with fancy hand painted decorations takes pride of place inside our cellar door.

OPENING HOURS
We are open for wine tastings and sales: –

9:00am to 5:00pm daily

We enjoy spending time with our visitors. This can be a little challenging when we have 50 people in our cellar door. This usually happens when 2 or more tour groups arrive simultaneously. Please telephone us beforehand wherever possible , if you are part of a group of 10 or more. We will do our best to arrange a mutually convenient time for your visit, so as to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to Aventine Wines.

Welcome to Preston Peak Wines, a family owned boutique wine business based in Toowoomba, South-East Queensland. Established in 1994 by Kym Thumpkin and Ashley Smith, Preston Peak Wines is committed to producing high quality wines and providing a first class experience to visitors at the Cellar Door. The winery has grown in size and reputation, now producing 3500 cases of wine annually and receiving over 20,000 visitors to the Cellar Door each year. The winery was awarded a four and a half star rating in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2010, with the 2006 Reserve Shiraz receiving five stars and 94 points. The 2008 Reserve Shiraz has since been awarded in the Top 5 Australian & New Zealand Shiraz in Winestate Magazine’s Wine of the Year Awards (November 2010). We are thrilled to announce that the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Carménère has been awarded five stars and a gold medal in the Winestate Cabernet & Blends Tasting (July/Aug 2012). As a boutique Australian winery, the company prides itself on producing a consistent range of award winning wine products, earning more than 250 awards and recommendations throughout the entire range of wines since beginning operations. Preston Peak Wines produces a range of bottled red, white, sparkling and fortified wines, appealing to a broad spectrum of the wine market in three product ranges: the Reserve – premium wines with cellaring potential, the Leaf Series – fruit driven wines suitable for drinking now, and the recently expanded Wildflower range which offers a reasonably priced range of easy drinking table wines including Merlot, Shiraz, Blanc and a picnic-style red. All three ranges are now being made by several specialist wine makers, including Mark Ravenscroft, Peter Scudamore-Smith, Mike Hayes and Peter Stark. The company has two vineyards – Devil’s Elbow Vineyard, the site of the winery in Wyberba near Stanthorpe and the Preston Vineyard near Toowoomba, the site of the Cellar Door, with the former vineyard producing the majority of the grape crush. Toowoomba dentists Ashley Smith and Kym Thumpkin established Preston Peak Wines in 1994, from Wyberba in the Granite Belt. In 1999, the Preston Peak Wines Cellar Door opened in Preston and since then has developed a reputation with locals and visitors for its quality wine product, wine tasting, events and its stunning location and views.
