Ravenscroft Vineyard

We are a boutique family-owned vineyard and winery situated in Queensland’s cool climate Granite Belt wine region. We specialise in producing high quality, small batch wines.
Just 12kms west of Stanthorpe and 950m above sea level, Ravenscroft is one of the Granite Belt’s highest vineyards, where nutrient-dense and ancient granite soils, combined with hot summers and frosty winters ensure its grapes ripen to their full potential and are bursting with flavour.

The 26 acre property was purchased by Mark Ravenscroft at the end of 2002, and the first grapes were planted in 2005.
Verdelho, one acre, was the first variety planted. It was then decided to try something different and an acre of pinotage was planted in 2007 – a nod to Mark’s South African heritage (pinotage is a South African variety and was created from a pinot noir x cinsaut cross). We are still one of the very few vineyards in Australia who grow and produce pinotage.
In 2012, another half acre of verdelho was planted and then a half acre of pinot gris in 2017. Our ‘babies’ are our albariño vines, planted in late 2020.Ravenscroft Vineyard’s own winemaking facility was established in 2009 with a 50 tonne capacity. We have a fully automated bottling line, so all wines are bottled and labelled onsite.

Caitlin and Nick Roberts acquired Ravenscroft from award-winning winemaker Mark Ravenscroft in 2021, who continues as winemaker and mentor.
Small yields mean that all grapes on the vineyard are lovingly tended to, hand harvested and made on site with minimal intervention and additives.
