There's no way that you could miss this Winery on the way into Maleny, the Barrel Cellar Door is a gigantic landmark on the Landsborough-Maleny Road. If, like me, you've seen it but never ventured inside, it's a unique place to stop and sample some excellent wines.

Positioned in what could arguably be one of the most scenic spots in the heart of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, with stunning views of the Glasshouse Mountains, Maleny Mountain Wines showroom is an eight metre high wine barrel - perhaps another 'Big Thing' for Queensland? Their range is extensive and includes reds, whites, fortifieds and dessert wines - sweet and dry choices - a range to suit every palate. A selection of local artworks and products are also available to purchase.

If you're not into wine-tasting, or perhaps it's a bit early in the day to do some sampling, it's a great spot to have a coffee and cake or perhaps a platter and just wander around the property to enjoy the stunning views and the spectacular environment of The Big Barrel.
