Our Story at Pyramids Road Wines
A husband and wife team only with no staff. But we love it!
It all begins in the vineyard
Our Stanthorpe vineyard began in 1999. Warren and Sue, a husband and wife combination who carry out all tasks of the wine growing and wine making operations. Inspired by a change in life style and leaving the busyness of the Sunshine Coast behind, they headed to the Granite Belt for a tree change.
A passion for fine wines drives all operations at Pyramids Road Wines. Our focus is on the production of high quality low volume hand made wines. All our wines are hand crafted on the premises. Small scale production means most operations are hands-on – from pruning, training, picking in the vineyard to basket pressing, bottling and labeling in the winery.
In the early days, all our wines were made from estate grown fruit. In recent years, we have purchased small parcels of locally grown fruit to supplement our production. Our Verdelho and Petit Verdot are grown by Duncan and Dini Ferrier at the Rosemary Hill vineyard just west of Stanthorpe. Our Chardonnay comes from a variety of vineyards in the Ballandean district.
Inspired by his love of chemistry, Warren completed his Associate Diploma in Applied Science at Charles Sturt University. This prompted a quick move from the Sunshine Coast to the Granite Belt where he hand planted his vineyard in 1999 on an old orchard in the foothills of Girraween National Park. The winery followed with small volumes of wine produced in the early years from estate grown fruit and now white wines produced from fruit grown locally.
