Bridgeman Downs Cellars is located 14 km south-east of Murgon. The property overlooks Lake Barambah and the Bjelke-Petersen Dam and its vineyards were established by the Brydges family in 1996.Bridgeman Downs is a charming boutique vineyard with a colonial-styled homestead and cellar door, acres of rolling lawns and gardens complete with an antique barn and matching stables. The principal grape varieties grown on the property are shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, chardonnay and verdelho.
Grapes grown on the Bridgeman Downs estate are routinely purchased and blended with other South Burnett grapes by local winemakers to produce specially crafted, high quality blends. And the estate’s own branded wines have won many awards at the prestigious Queensland Wine Awards; the Australian Small Winemakers Show and from leading Australian wine magazine Winestate.
You can visit Bridgeman Downs’ cellar door from 10:00am to 4:00pm Thursdays to Sundays. In addition to wine, the cellar door also has platters of local cheeses, tea, coffee and soft drinks. Bus groups are also welcome by appointment and there’s plenty of free parking in the grounds.
