Old Friends are Gems of the Soul

Old Friends are Gems of the Soul

The POETs Progressive Dinner is an epicurean journey that culminates in the barrel room.

In the heart of a picturesque countryside, where the vines stretched as far as the eye could see, two friends, their bond as timeless as the rolling hills, embarked on a journey that would celebrate their enduring friendship and set the foundation for future memories.

These friends were like a fine wine, their connection aging gracefully over the years. As they reunited for a special tour, one friend, an accomplished chef, opened the doors to their culinary world. With open arms and a warm smile, they welcomed their dear companion to a feast of flavors, showcasing the culinary artistry that had grown and matured alongside their friendship.

The tour began in the sprawling vineyards, where the vines stood as a testament to the strength of their bond—each one firmly rooted, just like their friendship. As they strolled through the sun-kissed rows, they shared stories of their past adventures and dreams for the future. The vineyard’s lush greenery whispered secrets of their enduring camaraderie.

Their journey led them to the heart of the winery, where barrels aged in harmony with the passing seasons, much like their shared experiences. Their host friend, now a seasoned vintner, poured glasses of their finest wines, each one a testament to their years of support and encouragement. As the wine flowed, so did the laughter and cherished memories.

Around a rustic table nestled amidst the vines, they savored the chef’s delectable creations, each dish a labor of love. With every bite, they tasted not just the flavors of the cuisine but also the years of shared joys and sorrows that had seasoned their friendship. It was a feast for the senses and a celebration of their unwavering connection.

As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a warm glow over the vineyard, they raised their glasses in a toast. The clinking of glasses echoed the clinking of hearts, and in that moment, they knew that their friendship, like the finest wine, would only get better with time. Their tour had not just showcased culinary and winemaking skills but had solidified a bond that was unbreakable, a friendship that would continue to nurture and inspire them in the years to come.

This culinary symphony is orchestrated to perfection, set against a backdrop of sophistication and splendor.

As the sun dips beneath the horizon, the doors of the exquisite venue swing open to reveal a scene of sheer opulence. Guests arrive adorned in their finest black-tie attire, the epitome of elegance, as they step into a space transformed into a haven of culinary delights and enchanting music. The air carries whispers of anticipation, a palpable excitement for the epicurean journey that lies ahead.

The evening commences with a string ensemble that weaves mellifluous melodies into the fabric of the atmosphere. Their notes resonate through the room, evoking a sense of timelessness and sophistication, setting the stage for an unforgettable gastronomic journey.

The first course arrives, a delicate dance of flavors that tantalize the palate. A flambeed dish ignites in a blaze of spectacle, infusing the air with the rich aroma of caramelized perfection. The dish exudes both the precision of culinary artistry and the thrill of controlled pyrotechnics, igniting not only the senses but also a sense of wonder.

As courses progress, rising hickory smoke dishes make their grand entrance. Plates are presented beneath elegant cloches, the unveiling accompanied by a soft wisp of fragrant smoke that carries hints of the rustic hearth. The delicate infusion of hickory essence adds a smoky depth to the dish, a nuanced touch that elevates the experience beyond the expected.

Game meats, tender and succulent, make their appearance as the evening advances. Their robust flavors are paired with carefully selected wines that have been meticulously blended to mirror the essence of the next Grange Hermitage – a legendary wine that has stood the test of time. Each sip is an ode to the art of winemaking, a harmonious partnership of taste and technique.

A crescendo of indulgence reaches its zenith with the arrival of Coffin Bay oysters, plucked from the pristine waters that cradle their unique flavor profile. These gems of the sea are served with a delicate touch, a tribute to their natural elegance and the meticulous sourcing that has gone into creating this gastronomic tableau.

Throughout the evening, conversations ebb and flow like the tide, as guests relish each morsel and melody. The string ensemble continues to enchant, their music bridging the gap between courses, creating a seamless tapestry of auditory delight that marries harmoniously with the culinary spectacle.

As the final course arrives, a sumptuous dessert that serves as the exclamation point on this epicurean journey, the symphony of taste and sound draws to a close. The evening has been a tapestry woven from the threads of gastronomy, music, and camaraderie – a symposium of the senses that transcends the ordinary.

Elegance is unveiled in its purest form, the culmination of skill, passion, and a dedication to the art of sensory indulgence. This black-tie degustation dinner, an unparalleled union of culinary mastery and melodic harmony, stands as a testament to the heights that human creativity can reach when it seeks to inspire, delight, and elevate.

A Culinary Odyssey: From Hors d’Oeuvres to Candlelit Desserts – A Journey Through Taste and Time

In the heart of a sprawling vineyard, a unique and enchanting experience awaits those seeking a sensory adventure that marries the art of winemaking with the pleasures of gastronomy. Nestled against a backdrop of rolling hills, this progressive dinner is a symphony of flavors that unfolds against the canvas of a breathtaking Australian landscape.

As the sun begins its slow descent, casting warm hues across the horizon, guests gather in anticipation. The evening commences with an exquisite assortment of hors d’oeuvres that tickle the palate and tease the senses. Glasses clink, and the first bottle of wine is uncorked, releasing the fragrant promise of the vineyard’s harvest. Amid laughter and lively conversation, a curious sight unfolds – kangaroos gracefully bounding along the property’s perimeter, a whimsical prelude to the culinary journey that lies ahead.

As the sun bids its farewell, casting long shadows over the vineyard, the second chapter of this gastronomic tale unfolds. A table adorned with silver service is set amidst the lush vines, where guests are seated for an unforgettable entree. The second bottle of wine is uncorked, its contents a libation of celebration that pairs harmoniously with the delicate flavors of the entree. The soft rustle of leaves and the distant hum of cicadas provide a natural serenade, enhancing the enchantment of the moment.

With the stars now in full bloom overhead, the third bottle of wine beckons from the depths of the cellar door. Guests are led into an inviting haven, where the crackling firelight dances upon the walls. Here, gourmet mains await – plates adorned with culinary masterpieces that blend tradition and innovation. The conversations are rich and the laughter hearty as old friends and new acquaintances share stories and savor each bite.

The journey takes an unexpected turn as the fourth bottle of wine becomes a tantalizing quest. Led through the heart of the working winery, guests become part of the process, unearthing the secrets of winemaking. The pungent aromas of fermenting grapes hang in the air, a sensory testament to the alchemy that produces the elixir they so enjoy. The hands-on experience imparts a deeper appreciation for the craftsmanship that goes into every bottle.

Finally, the crescendo of this epicurean journey culminates in the barrel room. Under the soft glow of a chandelier and the flicker of candlelight, guests are seated around an opulent table laden with desserts that transcend the ordinary. The fourth bottle of wine is uncorked with a shared sense of achievement, its rich notes blending seamlessly with the sweet symphony of dessert.

As the evening draws to a close, amidst satisfied sighs and contented smiles, it becomes clear that this progressive dinner has woven a tapestry of taste and memory. The laughter, camaraderie and the stories shared have melded with the flavors of the land, creating an indelible memory etched into the hearts of all who partook. A culinary odyssey that started with hors d’oeuvres and chasing kangaroos has turned into a journey through time and taste, leaving a trail of joy and nostalgia in its wake.

I was a bit nervous about how it would all pan out but you massively exceeded my expectations. Entrée served in the fields at sunset was one thing. But the candle-lit dinner in the gorgeous old room accompanied with fine wine and the banter/laughter of a gaggle of old mates will burn in the memory for many a year. Food for the soul! And to top it off Therese and Rob’s service was SEVEN star! This was my all time most enjoyable/memorable winery visit/experience!, Patrick.

“A 5 Star Stay at a 5 Star Winery”.

“Had a wonderful 2 nights staying at The Cottage. Very comfortable, cosy, heritage accommodation with a small kitchenette should one want to cook breakfast or other meals. However, there are so many ‘foodie’ options, why would you?
Hosts Therese and Robert made us feel most welcome and walked us through the elements of wine making and wine drinking. Long-time local Tessa was able to provide the low-down on what else the Granite Belt had to offer.
We highly recommend the Wine & Food paired lunch, giving us a chance to enjoy the range of wines on offer from Heritage Estate. The food was of excellent quality and the whole sitting good value for the price. The winery progressive dinner (POETS) on a Friday night gave us a chance to see the vines and the workings of the winery while consuming excellent food and wine at various locales.
The wines themselves are of exceptional quality and well deserving of the Halliday “5 Star Winery” award. They showcase the variety of grapes suitable for the area and terroir and the skill and care a small winery brings to production.
Heritage winery was a “gem” of a stay in the Granite Belt. We will be back!”

What is the role of terroir in wine making?

What is the role of terroir in wine making?

Learn about it from the ground up

Vintage and harvest time are crucial aspects of the wine-making process. The quality and flavor of the grapes determine the quality of the wine, so it’s important for winemakers to pick the grapes at the right time. Here are some reasons why vintage and harvest time are so important:

  1. Grapes mature at different rates: Different grape varieties mature at different times, so winemakers need to be careful to pick each variety at the right time to ensure its flavor profile and quality are maintained.
  2. Climate and weather: The climate and weather conditions during the growing season can greatly affect the grapes and the wine they produce. A warm and dry growing season can lead to higher alcohol content and bolder flavors, while a cool and wet season can result in more delicate and nuanced flavors.
  3. Wine style: Different wine styles require different ripeness levels of the grapes. For example, red wines are often made from riper grapes than white wines, as the skins of the red grapes need to be more mature to impart the desired color and flavor.
  4. Timing is key: Harvesting the grapes too early can result in underripe and underdeveloped flavors while harvesting them too late can lead to overripe and raisined flavors. The timing of the harvest can therefore have a big impact on the final flavor and quality of the wine.

In summary, vintage and harvest time play a crucial role in the wine-making process and can greatly affect the final quality and flavor of the wine. That’s why winemakers are very careful and selective when it comes to the timing of the harvest.

“Salt of the Earth” Winemaker, Stephen Oliver @ Heritage Estate

“Salt of the Earth” Winemaker, Stephen Oliver @ Heritage Estate

Heritage Winemaker in Full Flight

Stephen dreamed of becoming a winemaker. He began his journey as a cellarhand at a small winery, called Heritage Estate in 2001, learning the ins and outs of the trade and honing his skills under the illustrious winemaker Jim Barnes.

Despite his passion for winemaking, Stephen’s true calling was as a firefighter. He spent his free time volunteering at the local fire department, always eager to help out in any way he could. Years passed and Stephen’s hard work and dedication paid off. He was offered a job as a winemaker at a prestigious winery and jumped at the opportunity. He worked tirelessly to create delicious, high-quality wines and quickly made a name for himself in the industry.  In 2009 Stephen Oliver was named Finalist in the prestigious competition, Young Winemaker of Australia.

But even as he achieved success in the winemaking world, Stephen never forgot his passion for firefighting. He continued to volunteer at the local fire department, and in 2019 all his skills were tested.   The infamous bushfires of Stanthorpe had the town under threat over several fearsome days of ferocious flames.  Stephen was Commander in Chief and lead the crews on the hills above Stanthorpe. In recognition, he was elected to Regional Deputy of Rural Operations.

Years passed, and Stephen became one of the most respected winemakers in the region. But one day, the winery where he got his start as a cellarhand reached out to him. They were in dire straits and needed a new winemaker to save the vintage. Stephen knew he had to help, so he left his current job and returned to the winery where he began his journey.

He worked tirelessly to bring the winery back to its former glory, and with the help of his old friends and colleagues, he was able to do just that. As he stood in the vineyard, looking out at the grapes that he had helped to nurture, Stephen knew that he had truly come full circle. He had achieved his dream of becoming a winemaker, and had also been able to pursue his passion for firefighting. And he knew that, no matter what challenges came his way, he would always be ready to face them head-on.

As winemaker, Stephen is responsible for overseeing the production of wine from grape cultivation to bottling. This includes tasks such as selecting and managing grape vineyards, supervising the grape harvesting and crushing process, monitoring fermentation, and aging the wine in barrels. He is also responsible for blending different grape varieties and batches of wine to create a consistent product. Additionally, Shephen is involved in marketing and sales, as well as maintaining the overall operations of the winery. A winemaker’s life can be challenging as it involves long hours, physical labor and the need to be able to adapt to changing weather conditions and market demand. However, it can also be rewarding as it allows for creativity, experimentation and a deep connection to the land and its produce.

Heritage Restaurant sources all fresh produce from the Granite Belt, as well as Mooloolaba fisheries

A restaurant that puts the Granite Belt on the MAP, Heritage Estate incorporates locally-grown produce on all menus. Our chefs are just as passionate about the ingrediants that go into the dishes, as their neighbors, the farmers who produce the food.  It’s well worth booking a special meal because if goes beyond a meal.  The three signature experiences are accompanied by special tours that guide you through the fun of winemaking.

Stanthorpe Quality Meats
Fresh quality meats from the local Granite Belt district, including game and exotic meats.

W.Carey & Sons Quality Meats

Sam’s Fruit Shop
