City Winery – Opening Soon
Brisbane is home to a stellar selection of micro-breweries and soon we will welcome its first micro-winery. City Winery is the brainchild of duo Dave Cush and Adam Penberthy, who have drawn on the craft-brewery concept to bring a winery experience to the inner city. Qualified viticulturist and Queensland local Dave has spend the last 15 years in Tasmania honing his craft in wine production at Spring Vale, a vineyard owned by his wife’s family since 1875. This knowledge has now been brought home, where Dave and his wife Kris have been making Gerler wine in preparation for City Winery’s opening in 2019. Gerler wine sources its grapes from small growers around Australia, choosing varieties from the regions in which they grow best. Initially, the wine is being sold online, with City Winery set to launch a pop-up in the coming months. Once complete, the permanent City Winery site will feature a micro-winery, Gerler cellar door, restaurant, wine bar and function space.
