Sunshine Coast Private Gourmet Food and Wine Tour

Begin the day at a perfectly civilised time of 9:30am as you are picked up by luxury 4WD at your Sunshine Coast accommodation. Travelling up the Blackall Range to Maleny, the first stop is Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, boasting subtropical rainforest and overlooking the stunning Glass House Mountains. Here we take a private guided walk with an informative local expert through the tranquil reserve, a living museum of diverse plant and animal life unique to the Sunshine Coast. Next, visit a famous Montville Vineyard and restaurant for a private wine tasting where you are introduced to a selection of 100% estate-grown wines complimented by a selection of local epicure cheeses. Taste a range of distinctive wines while learning about their varietal qualities and fruit richness – a delectable wine lover’s experience! You then sit down to the ultimate paddock-to-platter experience sharing a delicious charcuterie platter of seasonal farm cured meats and game, Berkshire ham off the bone, terrine, pate, marinated and pickled vegetables, house-made relish and a selection of locally made Artisan breads complimented with a bottle of estate wine. Served alfresco on the terrace overlooking the vines and stunning coastal landscapes this is the ultimate Sunshine Coast gourmet food and wine experience. After lunch enjoy a brief time browsing the speciality shops and galleries of Montville village and sampling locally produced chocolates, ice creams and other gourmet delights at your leisure before being returned to your accommodation.
