Gold Coast, Wine and Lunch at Palazzo Versace Hotel - Brisbane - 2018 ( 7 Hours )
Brisbane, Australia | 04 Jan 2019

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Sightseeing

Our day begins at the Port of Brisbane, where we will meet our local guide and board our private, luxury coaches for a drive south towards the Gold Coast, Australia’s thriving, rapidly developing beach resort city. Gold Coast offers spectacular sandy beaches, some of the best surfing in the world, and a scenic mountainous backdrop. En route, we will stop for a wine tasting at Sirromet Wines. Here, we’ll have the opportunity to taste a variety of wines not usually available to the public, while gazing at the beautiful scenery overlooking Moreton Bay as we experience the taste of the Granite Belt wine region.

The Granite Belt is Queensland’s premier wine region, and one of the Australia’s most famous. The cool climate allows for the creation of elegant, complex varieties. Most of the wine produced is from Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Chardonnay grapes. Local Shiraz, the most well-known in the region, possesses a distinctive peppery, medium body akin more to the Rhone Valley in Southern France than other wines in Australia. Decide for yourself as we are offered an eclectic collection.

Following our tasting, we will re-board the coach and travel to the Palazzo Versace Hotel, in the heart of the Gold Coast. Situated with an exclusive waterfront setting, the Palazzo Versace hotel is one of the best in Australia, amidst spectacular architecture and Italian craftsmanship. Gold Coast is the first of only two Palazzo Versace hotels, the other being in Dubai. After enjoying a two-course lunch featuring the freshest of local produce accompanied with wine, explore the marvelous surroundings of this lavish hotel. We will then re-board the coach for the roughly 70-minute transfer back to the Port of Brisbane.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Smart casual wear recommended. There will be minimal walking, mostly on paved surfaces at the winery. Additional walking at Palazzo Versace Hotel is at your discretion.

Scenic Rim Wine Exploration
This full day wine immersion will introduce you to some of the finest estates in the Scenic Rim Wine Country. It's been said that the best wine grows on the most scenic landscapes and that certainly proves true here.

Our day in wine country begins with a scenic drive to Tamborine Mountain where you will have a nice view of the valley below. From there, you will visit three local wineries, each showcasing the best wine Australia has to offer, and one local distillery.

Lushes delight as 6-10 tastings are included at each winery and your guide will provide an explanation of each. Don't worry, we'll be sure to provide snacks in the van between stops! A leisurely two course lunch is also included and will also provide the perfect opportunity for your guide to teach you a thing or two about Australian wine.

After a full day in wine country, we're pretty sure you'll be extra chatty with your new friends on the way back to your cruise ship.
