Bellbird Vineyards are located 14 km south-east of Kingaroy in the beautiful Coolabunia uplands that encircle the southern part of the town (Coolabunia's rich red soils and cool climate provide a perfect environment for grape growing). The vineyards were established by Kevin and Nina Temperton in 2000.

Bellbird Vineyards is a boutique wine producer and their 20 acre vineyard is planted with shiraz, cabernet-sauvignon, verdelho and merlot vines.

Bellbird's wines are crafted by several South Burnett winemakers and are available for sale at the Taste South Burnett cellar door at Shop 4, 36 Alford Street in Kingaroy; at the annual Wine & Food In The Park Festival held in Kingaroy on the second Saturday of March each year; or by mail order direct from their Bellbird Vineyards website.

Bellbird currently produce a delightful rose, a cabernet-sauvignon and a verdelho under the own brand; and a Coolabunia Verdelho in conjunction with Nanango's Arabesque Winery.

Because Bellbird Vineyards doesn't have an on-site cellar door the property can't accept bus tours. But they're happy to conduct off-site tastings at art gallery openings, markets, festivals and similar events if they're given sufficient time to arrange the necessary licensing.

Bellbird Vineyards also host a popular annual Pickers Luncheon during the harvest season in late January and February where volunteers who help bring in the harvest are treated to a great lunch; terrific wines; and a lot of fun. If you're interested in taking part in one of these lunches, simply email Bellbird Vineyards about it.
