Captain's Paddock VineyardCaptain's Paddock Vineyard, Kingaroy
Captain's Paddock is located 8 km north of Kingaroy and has spectacular, sweeping views across the Booie Range. It's a specialist boutique winery and apart from numerous wine awards is probably most famous for being the home of Queensland's first official Wine Dog (who's known as Merlot and greets everyone on arrival). The principal grape varieties grown on its estate are shiraz, chardonnay and merlot.

You can visit Captain's Paddock's combined cellar door and cafe from 10:00am to 5:00pm seven days a week. The cafe offers inexpensive entrees, main meals and desserts as well as a children's menu. Tea, coffee and soft drinks are also available. The cafe can cater for up to 45 people and can be booked for special functions.

Captains Paddock also run special Grape Adventure Tours at 9:30am every Saturday and Sunday morning (or by request - bus groups are very welcome). For $5 per head, visitors get to learn about different grape varieties; the life-cycle of grape-growing and harvesting; and the science that lies behind making spectacular modern wines (as well as do a little first-hand sampling too!)

You can also stay overnight in Captain's Paddock Cottage if you wish. The Cottage overlooks the estate and tariffs start at $100 per couple (which includes a continental breakfast - a full cooked country-style breakfast is available for an extra $10 per head).
