Established 1998

 The Story so far…

A Sunshine Coast, Australian winery with its core vineyards almost 1000 metres above sea level in the cool climate Granite Belt. At Settlers Rise our focus is to produce wines that are a pleasure to the palate but not too heavy on your hip pocket. Recently our export arm has grown with our Riverina wines now being exported into Arizona USA through Southern Glaziers and into Shanghai China through Shenyang Aozhuang Trading Company.

Settlers Rise Wines are enjoyed as much by consumers throughout Queensland, as they are by national and international wine aficionados who like to taste wines from our region.
