Started from the bottle, now we're here

Kinglsey grove wine flavoured ice cream regional flavorus brisbane

Nothing delights dinner guests quite like cracking open a lavish bottle of wine. Perfectly paired with the right fare, pouring a glass of your favourite tipple is a ritual that has graced dinner tables throughout history without talk of change.

Until now.

Set in Queensland’s South Burnett region, a popular retreat for statewide wine lovers, Kingsley Grove Estate has pioneered a new approach to enjoying your favourite bottle.

The Kingaroy vineyard and winery now proffers tubs of homemade wine ice cream, designed in a range of decadent varieties infused with the vineyard’s very own wine.

‘We’re always looking for new ways to promote our wine,’ said winemaker Jo Berry. She and husband Simon innovated the idea while discussing the prospect of new creations with a group of friends.

Now, the pair crafts a range of gourmet desserts, frequently snapped up by locals, tourists, and travelling wine connoisseurs. The ice creams are made from a crème anglaise and a select bottle of Kingsley Grove Estate wine.

Flavours include Chocolate and Cabernet, Merlot and Plum, and Verdelho and Berry Bliss gelato, which is infused with raspberry port. The couple have recently debuted a new offering – a Lemon and Semillon sorbet, which is already proving popular among visitors.

Along with a constant stream of ice cream sales trickling from the winery’s Cellar Door, 2017 marks the Estate’s debut of the product at Brisbane’s Regional Flavours.

The event, held in South Bank Parklands, Brisbane is a bustling epicentre of the state’s best food and wine. Here, Kingsley Grove Estate will peddle out individual tubs to Regional Flavours’ immense crowds.

Jo and Simon held a market stall at the event last year, with many members of the crowd approaching the couple with enquiries surrounding their ice cream.

‘We’ve had so many people coming from Regional Flavours up to our Cellar Door just to try it,’ said Jo, adding that the ice cream has put their winery on the tourism map.
