A tale of two passions //

Discover the story of a local Scenic Rim vigneron and the perfect pairing with a world class chef.

Meet David and Richard. 

Every one of David’s two thousand vines has a special place in his heart. Producing only 10,000 bottles every year, David was inspired to start his own vineyard after a trip to Spain, and with an awareness to grow varietals that could stand the south east Queensland climate.  He met world class executive chef Richard Ousby in 2020 and the idea was ignited… it was a perfect match of food and wine. 

Oh, and don’t forget Nero, the resident black Labrador! He is like a shadow. Always present, in and out of the Lake, and ever ready for a game or a scratch.         

The Overflow Estate 1895 Cellar Door

The Vermentino, the Fiano, the Tempranillo and the Montepulciano represent the very best of “climate change” varieties from both Italy and Spain.  The terroir is typical of Sardinia, d’Abruzzo, Venetia and the north of Spain.

The wines are superbly constructed and balanced. They revel in gustatory combination with Mediterranean antipasto, fresh seafood, pate and crusty bread.  Just bring your friends for an unforgettable meal.

David has used a combination of Paulsen, Ramsey and Ruggeri rootstock to sustain our special varieties. Whist The Overflow is blessed with a seemingly endless water supply, this is a “dry” vineyard. The roots are to earn their keep by going far and deep. The intervine rows are covered with magnificent blue couch and the posts are solid ironbark, felled, split and erected by hand. An enormous, century-old blue gum tree stands proudly in the centre of the vineyard, keeping guard over proceedings throughout the seasons.

Highlights. 

    • Sip spectacular premium wines whilst enjoying the gentle warm breeze off Lake Wyaralong.  David loves to host, and will be sure to give you a brilliant cellar door experience.    

    • The lunch at The Overflow 1895’s is world class, and locally sourced.  Richard has designed the menu to be support the network of regional producers. Fresh and seasonal is guaranteed.
