Wine and dine gazing over the Great Dividing Range
A short drive through the countryside taking you past the currently flowering Golden Wattle trees is a relaxing start to your group's gathering. Preston Manor and Preston Village Chapel is a charming wedding venue to view en route.
Passing through the Tuscanesque façade, simple rustic comfort greets the wine taster inside 'The Cellar Door'. Multi-award winning wines fill the room with the Preston Peak label. Winter specials include Venus Cabernet Sauvignon, Wild Flower Red or Rose, Preston Peak Wild from the Leaf Series or Preston Peak Merlot. Other wines in the range include Shiraz, Blanc and soft reds suitable for picnicking. Grapes are hand-tended and hand-picked, mostly from their Stanthorpe vineyard.
Viticulture books and magazines collected over the winery's twenty years, dot the room for your interest.
Diners may breathe in the picturesque views of the Lockyer Valley and Great Dividing Range surrounding the property. Corporate gatherings, wedding receptions or other celebrations are encouraged with seating up to 150. Catering to 'functions only' includes your ladies luncheon. Internet access, audio visual equipment and catering can be provided on request.

The winery enjoys the custom of around 20,000 visitors each year. Also on sale is a range of preserves from the New England Larder such as Dried Fig and Apple Chutney, Red Capsicum Relish, Sour Cherry Jam and Lemon Butter which look as delicious as they sound.
