Cahills Wines are a boutique wine producer whose vineyards are located
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
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.
