THUNDERBOLT FARM WINES are produced with cool climate, hand picked grapes, right here in Stanthorpe, Queensland. Being a very small producer, in the this exceptional wine producing area, allows us to make wines that WE like. One of the key aspects is in HAND PICKING! We are in control! not a machine that picks all and sundry, but people who can see what is being picked and who can control exactly which grapes go into the bin, the bin that carries our future wine.It is so nice to see all those fresh selected grapes being tipped into the crusher!!!

It is even nicer to make wine with pure juice; A nice starting point which cannot be matched by machine harvested grapes. Is there a theme here ? If you purchase your wine from a small winery, who hand pick, you have a very good chance of a better wine. So it is now up to the wine maker to make a wine that YOU like.

We like to think we make that kind of wine. We have both red and white wines, dry and fruity, Port and Liquers. The best way to see if our wine is to your liking is for you to try them. We offer tastings at the cellar door, an opportunity for you to discuss and try. We hope that your taste buds will enjoy some of the offerings and you find some wines that you really like. Our wines, because of the hand picking, need absolute minimum presertives and "chemists" intervention. That theme again?

Welcome to our wines! enjoy them, and when in Stanthorpe, you are welcome to visit the winery, taste our wines and dine at the restaurant. We know that you will enjoy the visit!!

For our restaurant, we have available a selection of wines from selected local wineries.

See you soon,
Keith and Claudia
