A winery and associated distillery has been proposed for development in Moore Park Beach, with tours and tastings part of future plans for the site.
Bundaberg Regional Council recently received the development permit for a Material Change of Use to establish a winery to process an existing grape crop at 32 Heron Close.
“Once established, a distillery producing less than 2,500L per annum is proposed to reuse waste by-product produced in the wine making process to create brandy,” the application states.
“Upon review of its operation, it is intended that this volume may be increased on an as needs basis.
The application states it is anticipated that ancillary tourism and retail uses would be associated with the proposed material change of use.
“This would be in the form of winery and distillery tours, tastings and wholesale retailing of the produced wine and brandy,” the proposal reads.
“The nature of tours and tastings would mean that visitor numbers would be grouped together for a limited number of tours per day.
“The existing facilities on site including a parking area, which are currently associated with the horse trail riding business would be shared and sufficiently accommodates the anticipated needs of the proposed development.”
