Flame Hill Vineyard – impressive wines and beautiful fresh produce
Flame Hill Vineyard and Restaurant, positioned on a plateau on the highest point in lush green Montville, is notable not only for its stunning views, but also for the unique wines produced from its two vineyards, and the sustainable production of the ingredients used in its delicious meals.
Under the guidance of passionate owner Tony Thompson, the vineyard not only grows the grapes for its impressive wines, it also farms its own beef, venison, poultry and eggs, and grows its own fresh vegetables and herbs – it’s no wonder the dining and experiences are truly unique.
The vineyard is proud of its over-arching focus on producing good food and wine in an ethical and sustainable manner.
Flame Hill also breeds its own high-quality Angus beef, which is grass fed on site at the Montville property; the cattle graze in the pastures around what is lovingly known as the “Chook Hilton”, the home of the poultry and eggs that are also produced on the lush property; and it has a market garden on site for the fresh vegetables and herbs that are served in the restaurant.
To accompany the meals, or to be savoured nicely on their own, are two beautiful wines produced from the local grapes – Montville Shiraz and Flamehill Verdehlo – and wines produced from their southern vineyard, Kurrajong Lyra, at Ballandean in the Granite Belt of southern Queensland.
Perhaps the secret of these estate-grown, hand harvested wines stems from the deep emotional attachment between the land, the season and the people, collaborating, of course, with the vineyard’s overall deep passion and dedication to quality.
Just like the wines, the Flame Hill Vineyard is itself vibrant and welcoming. The adjacent grape trestles underpin the ambiance and nicely enhance the views into the valley and towards the sea.
The flame trees themselves, with their vibrant red flowers that attract black Cockatoos and brightly coloured Rosellas, add a true richness to the experience that is Flame Hill Vineyard.
