  • Top: John Cahill is the South Burnett's smallest wine producer, but his quiet and unassuming method of growing a vineyard and cellar door has won him many fans.
  • Above Left: The Cahill homestead is a typical South Burnett farmhouse, surrounded by gardens with an outlook over the nearby Booie Range.

  • 3rd Left: Cahill's vineyard grows shiraz and chardonnay grapes and they're all hand-tended and hand-picked.
  • 4th Left: Quality is an obsession with John Cahill, and his wines command a strong following.
  • 5th Left: Cahill's wines can be purchased from the Carrollee Hotel's bottle shop in Kingaroy, but only if you're quick! All past releases have completely sold out.

Cahills WinesCahills Wines, Kingaroy
Cahills Wines are a boutique wine producer whose vineyards are located 19km due east of Kingaroy on a ridge of the Booie Range. Cahills Wines are owned by John and Cindy Cahill and their Kingaroy Ridge vineyards were established in 1998.

Cahills currently grow 5 acres of shiraz and chardonnay grapes, and plan to expand the vineyards to approximately 10 acres in 2011. Their vineyards are hand-tended and watered by a drought-proof irrigation system.

Cahills produce a limited release of their shiraz and chardonnay each year, along with a port. The wines were originally produced for them by acclaimed Kingaroy winemaker John Crane, but are now produced by Crane Wines' new owner Bernie Cooper.

Cahills Wines don't have a cellar door - there are plans to build one in the next few years once the vineyard expansion has been put in place - so their property isn't open to the public at the present time.

However, their wines can be obtained through the Carrollee Hotel's drive-though bottle shop in Haly Street, Kingaroy or by mail order from the farm.
