Winooka Park is in the heart of Central Ranges in Gemalla, just west of Tarana, in the Fish River valley. We grow Shiraz and Cabernet sauvignon. The first vines were planted in 1992. The grapes come from our 2 acres, south-facing vineyard and are pruned and picked by hand.

Our wine range is small, but made well, by a Burgundian winemaker in Orange. Winooka Park’s rosé is generally made from Shiraz grapes which are picked early to produce light, dry and crispy wine. It has been in this style since 2008. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominant dry reds produce intense, complex aromas.

COSMOS BREWING

Pilsner: A refreshing and easy drinking beer with light Vienna malt flavors of honey and biscuit are balanced with a subtle aroma of grass, pine, and citrus from Australian Cascade and Ella dry hops.

Sour House: A very fresh kettle-soured wheat beer brewed in the Berlinner Wiesse style. The wort is soured overnight in the brew kettle using our house-made yoghurt. Fermentation follows with a blend of Ale Yeast.

GIN RANGE Australian Dry: A classic base of juniper and coriander blended with a unique combination of Australian native botanicals.
