We booked for lunch for 8 guests and was welcomed by friendly staff that liked a good joke. Enjoyed our meal. Was a little disappointed at wine tasting. He didn't seem to be well organised. Only one gentleman serving tastings and a couple of the...wines were not available as they were not cold. Not keeping up with stock in the fridge. For a long weekend this would be essential as there were many people going through the cellar doors while we were there.More
Book lunch and a wine tasting, which did not fail to impress, the staff were friendly and informative, they knew wines and the history of the vineyard. Food was lovely with locally sourced ingredients. We will be back again. Highly recommend this location on your...itinerary of wine tasting.More
I’ve visited almost every Granite Belt Winery and this was by far the worst experience I’ve had at any of them. We deliberately chose to support as many local businesses as we could for our annual wine trip to show our support after such tough...times for the region. This is the only one that didn’t offer exceptional hospitality and didn’t appreciate our custom. After a year of planning they almost ruined our day.
Due to an unforeseen change in our schedule we arrived much later than expected for our pre-booked lunch. While our bus driver had let them know and we should have been punctual, in spite of our most genuine apologies the reception we got was colder than any Granite Belt winter.
They almost didn’t give us lunch but the lady started doing some tastings ... while they were nowhere near as good as the wines we enjoyed before and after this stop, we bought some as a gesture of goodwill to go with lunch. We thanked them for their efforts and besides some of the kitchen staff who delivered our meals there was barely a smile to be seen. The food was very ordinary. One of our group of 15 was still eating when they took her pizza away. Some friends we knew who happened to be there before us said they had been trashing us to customers before we arrived.
Thankfully, afterwards, Martin at Ridgemill Estate saved the day by being very welcoming with the added bonus that their wines were superb.
I’d strongly recommend giving Jester Hill Wines a miss if you’re looking for quality wines and customer service.More

Hi Daniel. thank you for taking the time to review Jester Hill. It clearly was an unfortunate day for your group. Yes you did book a year in advance and that was appreciated. You booked in for lunch for a 130pm time slot. I received...More
We accidentally found Jester Hill Winery yesterday. They had some local artists doing the Art Trail live art and letting tourists participate in water colours. They were brilliant and also had their own works for sale on the walls - of particular note landscapes, so...beautiful and reasonably priced.
The owner of the winery was behind the tasting counter...... what an amazing person. Very down to earth, knowledgeable and generous person. We really wanted to spend more time here but alas had to keep moving.
The vines are in excellent condition, as are the rest of the grounds. The kitchen was serving a large group of cyclists and the whole atmosphere was fantastic.
The wines are on the higher end price wise but very good and the prices are fair for the quality. You may join the mailing list and get a very decent discount for just purchasing 6 bottles a year....... well worth the commitment.
The wine list is VERY VERY good.
I would recommend this winery as a MUST SEE experience. Take your time here and stay for lunch. We are coming back to the Granite Belt again soon, purely to come here.More

We popped into Jester Hill while riding between Stanthorpe and Ballandean and we were so impressed with the whole family business, the friendly welcome and only wished we could have stayed for lunch - it looked fabulous. We will be back.
