Less than a ten minute drive, 12 kms West on the Texas Road from Stanthorpe Queensland will find you at the Casley Mount Hutton Winery, one of the districts modern establishments.

The grapes were planted in 1996 and the cellar door was opened in August 2001 although the winery is now in its eleventh vintage. Here you will find a modern, fully insulated and cooled winery building built in 1999. Employing "state of the art" wine making equipment and a fully serviced laboratory ensures that the wines produced here are of the highest quality and consistency.

Grant and Sonya Casley acquired the 900 acre property 30 years ago as an unimproved block with no facilities whatsoever. Grant has a farming background and is a Chemical Engineer which seemed to be a good combination to run a vineyard and winery. The intention of planting a vineyard was delayed until 1994 when the ground was prepared for the planting of 24 acres of vines in 1996. With adequate land to choose from it was possible to select an ideal site for the vineyard with a northerly aspect and slope, and close to a site for a 30 Mega Litre dam to irrigate the vines in their early years. The altitude of the vineyard at 900 metres above sea level also makes it an ideal location for cool, long ripening of the grapes.

Eight classic varieties were chosen for the Estate – Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Semillon. All together the various wines have won over 50 medals in the short time the winery has been operating. The current Shiraz 2006 vintage has won two best Qld shiraz trophies, two gold medalds and a silver medal. The 2007 Verdelho has won a trophy for best Qld white and a silver medal.

All the grapes except Verdelho and Muscat from a local vineyard are Estate grown, processed and bottled.
