Mountain Ridge Wines

Located on, you guessed it, a Mountain Ridge, just 8km from Berry. The winery has sweeping views of Coolangatta, Berry, Saddleback and Cambewarra Mountains.

Head into the cellar door and you’ll find a bar to do tastings, a cafe and restaurant. But we recommend heading outdoors and having a wine after your tasting as the view is breathtaking! There’s also a elevated decking right out on the vines with some amazing art and we think they’ve done a great job architecturally in setting this place up.

The wine tasting is enjoyable, and we undertake this in our group whilst seated outside. The cost for a group of 5 or more is $5 for a tasting fee. The place is super busy the day we are there, so you are recommended to book ahead.

In the tasting, we walk through the wines from white to red with the Mountain Ridge semillon, Mountain Ridge Pinot Gris, Mountain Ridge Rose, and Mountain Ridge Sparkling Chamborcin.

We finish with a Mountain Ridge Tawny Port, perfect to pair with dessert. We personally also love their macadamia liqueur which we tried at a local restaurant.

The host let us also try a watermelon liqueur slushee, all the rage at the moment, and seemed to be popular with people at the winery. This was my favourite!

It’s an amazing place to visit if down in the south coast. We’ve already recommended this to plenty of people! It’s also kid and dog friendly!

We’d like to thank Destination NSW for setting up our visit.
