Kooroomba Vineyard Restaurant
Restaurants - Mount Alford, QLD
Our Executive Chef Mark Naoum has had extensive experience in Europe and top Brisbane restaurants. He has sourced quality new seasons produce to develop a menu that excites the taste buds of guests.
Kooroomba has been created as a unique tourist destination, nestled in the Fassifern Valley at Mt Alford near Boonah, about 65 minutes from Brisbane and 1hr 45minutes from the Gold Coast.
The property consists of a cellar door, restaurant and lavender shop which overlooks a six hectare vineyard and a breathtaking lavender field, with magnificent views of the Scenic Rim mountains. Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm provides a southern France experience on the doorstep of Brisbane and is the perfect setting for a relaxing day away.
Principals Bob and Marlene Carroll have invested $4 million into the development, which has now been operating for 10 years.
The award winning cellar door/restaurant complex is of a 5 star level and is a blend of rustic and contemporary architecture.
The wine marketed from the cellar door is from grape grown on the property, which along with the Modern Australian cuisine served in the restaurant from local produce provides a unique regional wine and food experience.
Kooroomba has a large variety of wines including Chardonnay, Verdelho Marsanne, Vermintino, Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot.
The unusual Verdelho Marsanne blend has been served in Paris and received high praise from the French people who tasted it.
The lavender fields have a number of varieties of French and Italian lavender designed to provide flower most of the year.
