Experience and taste the fabulous fermentations of the lychee, mango, jaboticaba, bush cherry, mulberry, passionfruit and star apple at the unique de Brueys Boutique Winery and Functions Venue, Mareeba. de Brueys blend of tradition and innovation produces high quality wines from a rich diversity of tropical fruits. They can provide a selection of high quality wines to meet any specific need - no matter whether the client is a small restaurateur or a commercial importer. Visit the Winery and Cellar Door, tour the orchards, sample their world-class fruit wine range, including liqueurs and ports, and take some home with you. Enjoy the relaxing and scenic surrounds. They are only a 50 minute (55km) drive west in the Cairns hinterland. (See getting here). This unique destination is reached by driving through a rural landscape of rich fertile plains where exotic fruits, coffee, macadamias and a whole banquet of crops flourish. The Winery and Cellar Door is located near Mareeba at their 15ha mango orchard on the Atherton Tablelands/Cairns Highlands, North Queensland, cradled between the peaks of the Great Dividing Range in the high, wide valley of the Barron River as it flows through the Mareeba area. Use the getting here directions to show you the way.

About Us

Bob and Elaine de Brueys

Owner/operators, Bob and Elaine de Brueys moved to the property from Cairns in the late nineties, after their children grew up and left home. Bob had been production manager of the Cairns Coca Cola bottling plant till 1990.

Pull up a stool, make yourself comfortable, and chat to Bob or Elaine as they invite you to sample their range of tropical fruit wines, liqueurs and ports.

In the Beginning

After establishing the mango orchards and selling mangoes at southern markets during the 1990's, and following a downturn in mango prices due to their oversupply at those markets, Bob's thoughts turned to using the mangoes for wine production.

Production began in 1999/2000, and construction of the Winery and Cellar Door followed, with the Cellar Door opening for business in July 2003.

Tropical fruit trees were planted to supply fruit for the other wines they were planning, including jaboticaba, lychee, mulberry and bush cherry (native Nth Qld fruit exclusive to de Brueys).

Expansion Dreams become Real

Stage Two of the project commenced in 2005, beginning with the excavation and construction of the underground wine cellar, followed by the new Cellar Door and Function Room.

Now complete, de Brueys Functions Venue caters for weddings and corporate events, celebrations, luncheon groups and lots more.

Much attention has been paid to preserving the natural open woodland surroundings, with their population of kangaroos and wallabies, possums, native quolls and bandicoots, not to mention the extensive birdlife (including rosella parrots, rainbow lorikeets, black and white cockatoos, wedge tail eagles and kestrels). There are even crocodiles in the local creek at the rear of the property!

Walking tracks will entice you to explore the orchards and property and, if you're very lucky, spot the freshwater crocodiles in the creek.

Why Mareeba?

Mareeba, is an ideal centre in which to live and establish a Winery, for a number of reasons:

  • the area is renowned for its abundance and availability of tropical fruits.
  • it is very close to the international airport and tourist centre of Cairns (50 minutes drive by car).
  • its high elevation on the Tablelands to the west of Cairns (500m), resulting in low humidity and cooler days and nights.
