Brisbane gets an urban wine cellar door

Brisbane’s Proud Henry artisan wine bar and ginoteca is to partner with leading Granite Belt wine producer Symphony Hill to create an urban cellar door in Fortitude Valley. 




Symphony Hill is one of the stars of the Queensland wine industry and aims to boost awareness of its wines. 

Three months after a visit to the Granite Belt for his 30th birthday, Ewen Macpherson had enrolled in a viticulture degree and purchased a block of land to start producing wine. 

With his parents and wife on board they went about creating a winery that has picked up a swag of awards. 

“This partnership with Proud Henry is a great step forward for us," Macpherson said. 

"We know people love our wines so providing them in the heart of Brisbane, where we know the Proud Henry team can do them justice, is the next step in our evolution. 

"We trust their instinct and their ability. Their wine knowledge is impeccable and we are confident this collaboration is a really good match for us.” 

Proud Henry co-owners Freddy and Ashley also operate sister venue Grape Therapy. 

While Proud Henry has Queensland’s largest collection of gin under one roof, its also offers a selection of smaller, handcrafted wines. 

"We love great wine and we get excited being able to bring something new to the table," they said. 

"This collaboration sets us apart and offers us a chance to showcase what the team at Symphony Hill have to offer and showcase what we do at the same time.” 

All of Symphony Hill’s wines are available for purchase at Proud Henry and tastings are available daily from noon-5pm. 

Seven Symphony Hill wines will feature on the wine list and can be served with charcuterie and cheese. 

Proud Henry is at 153 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. (07) 3102 1237
