November 23, 2016

Swedish visitors to HILL OF PROMISE Cellar Door enjoyed the relaxing ambience of our early Summer garden. Pick up some deli items or bring delights from your own kitchen. We love the clink of cutlery on plates, the buzz of conversation. outbursts of laughter … family and friends catching up with one another over a glass of wine and some simple food. What better way to spend an afternoon. If making a special trip, give Mary a quick call 1800 816020 0408 875 305

SPRING IS IN THE AIR…. AND THE JACARANDAS ARE IN BLOOM

November 9, 2016

Our cellar door is part of our lovely old Queenslander built in 1911. The garden is home to several magnificent old trees including the gorgeous Jacarandas which carpet the lawn with purple blossoms. It is a beautiful spot to sit and enjoy a glass of our HILL OF PROMISE award-winning preservative-free wines or some good Vittoria Coffee after a wine-tasting. Pick up a quiche or breadstick in town, add in some tasty cheese and a pickle or relish ….. and you have a feast!
Give MARY a quick call if you are making a special trip up this way – 4126 3470 or 0408 875 305

TASTE TESTING @ HILL OF PROMISE WINERY means fun times for TERRANZO THE WINEMAKER and THE CELLAR RAT

November 1, 2016

Remember the Princesses in the Tower I wrote about in early September (well, that’s how I described the secondary fermentation stage of our latest 3 Marys Sparkling) One of the exciting times in the winery is progressive testing by TERRANZO THE WINERMAKER and the CELLAR RAT. The crown seal is carefully prised off, the contents are carefully poured into the glass….. it’s like a mini-fireworks, only better. Fine streams of pearly bubbles escape to the surface and wink at you. You take a sip…. mamma mia, deliciosa!! Back to sleep for another 4 weeks, final beauty treatment and release in December. sogni d’oro!!

WARMER DAYS MEAN EASY-PEASY BARBEQUES

October 27, 2016

Hope you are enjoying some of the glorious ‘SPRUMMER’ weather that we are feasting on…. crisper cool mornings and evenings with beautiful balmy days in between. In fact, ideal weather to get out the Webber or fire up the barbecue. Whether it’s seafood, chicken, beef, lamb or ‘that other white meat’ pork OR char-grilled capsicum, eggplant, corn, tomatoes…. the variety is endless. Match your favourites up with one of ‘HILL OF PROMISE’ whites or reds.

BOTTLING OUR NEXT 3 MARYS BUBBLY

September 16, 2016

Spring here @ HILL OF PROMISE means it’s time to KICK OFF THE SECONDARY FERMENTATION STAGE of our next 3 MARYS SPARKLING SEMILLON. Winemaker TERRANZO and the support team of ELISA AND VERONICA (from Italy) and ALEXANDRA (from France) bottled 1 050 yesterday.  The yeast/wine concoction that was added to the base dry white wine starts a second round of fermentation, resulting in all those lovely CO2 bubbles produced  being trapped inside the bottle like princesses in a tower!  The bottles were handled like new born babies and carefully placed in crates,  where they will spend at least the next 3 months before the next stage of the story begins.  Stay tuned for progress reports!  (Yes, I was involved as the general Cellar Rat doing jobs hither and thither and providing sustenance for the winemaker!)
