Like a fine wine, the Queensland wine industry has truly come of age. After 160 years of redefining vineyards and varietals to meet the state’s unique sub-tropical climate, Queensland winemakers are finally earning a reputation for their emerging varieties and sun-kissed ‘vines of the future’.

The Vine and Shine Trail was created to put Queensland winemakers on the map, encouraging domestic and international visitors alike to venture in from the coast and discover a wine tourism experience only Queensland can offer.

The Vine and Shine trail is the centrepiece of an overarching ‘Venture In’ tourism campaign, funded by the Australian Government’s Export and Regional Wine Support Package and the Queensland Government. The initiative was spearheaded by the Queensland Wine Industry Association (QWIA) and launched in November 2020, with support from Wine Australia to support wine tourism in Queensland
