Started from the bottle, now we're here
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.
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
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
‘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.
