We make award winning wines from Tropical Fruit and no this does not mean they are sweet and sticky. They range from very dry wines to ports and they are all commercial standard. The wines are single-fruit wines, not blends. All the fruits we use have big flavours and we grow them in the organic way and in our own orchard. The flavours of the fruits are retained in the wine.

We visited Shannonvale in search of chocolate port, as it is a shared love of my wife and I. Shannonvale was the only purveyor of chocolate port in the area, so we dropped in. We decided to do the full wine tasting menu and were very surprised just how many of the wines we truly enjoyed. The owner was very... More

We visited here & had a lovely tasting experience at the cellar door. The wine is delicious & not like anything we had tasted before. The tasting was informative and the passion for their wine making was clear. Would really recommend anyone to visit, we really enjoyed the experience & are looking forward to drinking our wine when we get... More

Such a lovely way to spend an hour or so on a warm afternoon. My wife and I popped in for a quick visit, a taste and maybe a bottle of wine. Beware! Trudy will give you an expectionaly knowledgable tour through a delightful selection of different tastes that will inspire you to walk away with at least one bottle... More

Tucked in amongst the lush tropical vegetation is a first class collection of fruit wines an liquorice . Hosts are humble ,well knowledges and skilled . It is the place to go to taste unique flavoured wines such as Black Sapote fortified wine .

While we are regular and experienced wine drinkers, none of us was experienced in the methodologies and taste/flavours of fruit wines, in this case tropical fruit wines. The winery itself is in a lovely rustic setting, looking perhaps a little run down, but with some gorgeous gardens, maintained by our hostess. She was great to deal with. Clearly stated the... More

Thanks Pedro for your comments. Sorry about the slightly run down mention. We have had a very busy main tourist season and we have been overwhelmed with "Farm" work with just the two of us. We promise to tidy things up a bit during the off season and we hope you will be impressed for your next visit. We enjoyed... More

Such a great winery, sans grapes. Can't help but buy a bottle each of everything, it's all so good. The mango wines (2 kinds, a dry and another slightly more mango-ish) are great and the chocolate liqueur is simply awesome. Fortunately it doesn't seem to be highly visited as when I went we were the only ones there. The owner... More

Hi DannyShez, Thank you for your comments. We like to make wine with food in mind, so we have a food story with every Table Wine. You have clearly understood this and enjoyed the wines. Look forward to meeting you next year. Cheers, Tony and Trudie Woodall. More

A strange review. If you read the other reviews we receive you will notice that this review is the opposite of everything about the Shannonvale Winery. No - you don't have to buy a bottle of wine to taste them all. We offer you 4 wines to taste without obligation or all of the wines to taste and to buy... More

We visited the winery on our way north and made brief stop on our return trip. We're wine lovers so any chance to try something different is taken. The owners Trudie and Tony Woodall have really taken wine making to another level. The non-grape wines (their description not mine) are surprisingly varied and exceptionally good. Trudie spent a lot of... More

Hi Colin H, thank you for your review. I think your last sentence is the key to a more exciting life. "...........or if you just like something different take the opportunity to visit." Over the years we have made a point of always trying something new. We have broadened out palates for Food as well as Wine. We don't expect... More

We decided to stop by Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery after seeing the winery marked on a tourist map of the area. The tasting room was very cute, and the winery was far enough off the main road that I felt like I had finally escaped the mass of tourists visiting the more popular attractions in the area. If you purchase... More

Hi 387megann, thank you for your comments. One of the many nice comments we receive from people is the quietness and relaxation of the Cellar Door experience. We are off the beaten track as 387megann has explained, 200 metres away from the road leading in. The only excess sound is at dawn when the birds start their dawn chorus. We... More

We had a nice female host who took us through the wines, fortifieds and liqueurs on offer. Very fun and informative. I liked a lot more than I thought I would have and came home with two. The kids played in the garden with their dad whilst I had the full tasting experience. Lovely, not corporate, family experience. Very reasonably... More
