About Mountain Wine Tours – Winery Tours Brisbane
Mountain Wine Tours was launched in 2013 by Ray and Karen Hellsten to provide personalised, informative and fun tours to beautiful boutique wineries in and around Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Somerset Valley and the Scenic Rim regions.
Our Story – For the love of wine, food and fun!
Ray and Karen operate Mountain Wine Tours Brisbane.
Your hosts, Ray and Karen, share a passion for wine and its provenance and discovered a bounty of family owned and operated wineries in and around their local area. They also discovered the amazing stories behind many of these wineries and the journeys that led to some extraordinary vineyards and outstanding wines.
Leaving the building and beauty industries behind them, Ray and Karen launched Mountain Wine Tours to share the hidden treasures they’d discovered in Brisbane’s own back yard. They set about providing locals and visitors alike with a rich insight into wine tasting and the culture of local wine regions.
Of their journey so far Karen says, “We’ve been privileged to visit some of the most beautiful wineries and vineyards in the Moreton Bay, Somerset Valley and the Scenic Rim regions. We’ve heard incredible stories of family history from South East Queensland winery owners, we’ve tasted outstanding wines and, best of all, we shared these remarkable experiences with those who joined us on our wine tours”.
Ray adds, “Each tour is different, not only for our guests but for ourselves as well. We can even cater for individual itineraries. We’ve made some wonderful new friends and, just as we have very special memories of all our tours, I feel sure our guests share some wonderful recollections of their time with us”.
Our mission is to provide enjoyable and relaxing winery tours – tours that offer a well-earned appreciation of South East Queensland’s wines and vineyards – the flavour, the heritage and the hospitality.
We will ensure our guest’s day is fun, enlightening and comfortable and provides top-notch customer service from the moment guests are picked up by our air-conditioned coach.
We envisage increased growth in our business, growth that provides employment opportunities for enthusiastic and passionate history- and wine-lovers. Through our wine tours of Brisbane we strive to not only share the love of wine but also the natural beauty and rich culture of the Great South East. We also aim to be a positive link in the recognition of wineries in the Moreton Bay, South Burnett and Somerset Valley regions.
