Ironbark Ridge Vineyard is situated at Purga, south west of Ipswich, in the south eastern corner of Queensland and is approximately 40 minutes drive from Brisbane. Ironbark Ridge is surrounded by picturesque mountain views.
The Ipswich District has a rich history in grape-growing and wine making during the 19th and 20th centuries. The district’s first wines made by Robert Le Grand are well recorded as being highly acclaimed in Europe in the 1890’s. Then the Dick family received many awards from France in the early 1900’s.
Ironbark Ridge was established in 1984, no more than a kilometre from the original Dick Brother’s cellars and vineyard. It is the oldest established vineyard in this region. Ironbark Ridge currently has 6 acres under vine with plantings of Chardonnay, Shiraz and Grenache and also smaller parcels of Marsanne, Rousanne and Viognier. In addition there are also new plantings of Dolcetto, Verdelho and Nebioli. All the vines here at Ironbark Ridge were hand planted and are also hand picked.
Ironbark Ridge produces many Award Winning Wines. The historical tasting room built in early 1900’s was originally a miners cottage and now offers cellar door tastings and sales along with a selection of cheeses, olives and coffee.
The cellar Door facility also has a range of memorabilia of Ironbark Ridge and some local made products using Ironbark Ridge Port or Liqueur Chardonnay.
Cellar Door Sales :- Tuesday – Sunday and Public Holidays 10am – 5pm
