I went to my first winery while in Stanthorpe. We chose ridgemill estate .

We did a tour of the winery and were shown the process of wine making from the vine to the finished product. It was a great experience and I would totally recommend this place to visit.

A few nice bottles of wine came home with us as well.

... Enjoying a Winery Experience.

We revisited Ridgemill for the mid week special while the grapes were being picked.

The winery tour was very worthwhile and with a greater appreciation of wine making we enjoyed a leisurely wine tasting and platter ...
