Winemaker for a Weekend

  • Queensland College of Wine Tourism (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

From hand picking the grapes, to crushing and pressing process, preparation, fermentation and the inoculation of the juice, participants discover so much more about ‘the finer things in life’ as they participate in the production of their very own wine.

With many indulgences in between, including delightful lunches and incredible banquet style evening meal with matching wines, guests are assured of a wonderful weekend to remember. As a recent participant of the Winemaker for a Weekend commented, ‘I just loved it and without exaggeration, it is one of the best weekends of my life’.

As the bottling and labelling process awaits later in the season, guests are invited to return for an additional weekend to take part in the exciting finale, be part of an expert food and wine matching masterclass as well as a professional wine masterclass and take home a half case of their very own wine, complete with customised label!

For a weekend with a difference, great company, genuine hospitality and sheer enthusiasm for food and wine, you really must experience the Queensland College of Wine Tourism’s ‘Winemaker for a Weekend’ program.

As there are limited numbers of weekends during vintage, early bookings are advised. For all enquiries, please contact our Campus Manager on 07 4685 5050
