It started over a decade ago as a cool place to store great wine – a purpose-built, temperature-controlled environment where Queensland’s wine lovers could keep their coveted collections catalogued and on call.
Today Wineaway is not only Queensland’s largest and most popular wine storage and wine management destination - a highly-specialised “cellar extraordinary”- it’s also a virtual, (and actual), meeting place where over a thousand wine lovers and wine collectors from all across Australia come together regularly to buy, share and celebrate the finest wines of Australia and the world.
At the heart of Wineaway is a close-knit team that is passionate about bringing you the most exciting and sought after local and international wines, from new releases and new labels to rare and exotic vintages.
If your passion is for aged wines, Wineaway’s exclusive Museum List offers the opportunity to purchase wines and vintages that are seldom seen in even the best of wine stores. Not only that, our Museum List wines have the added benefit of immaculate provenance, having been professionally cellared since release.
Director/ Owner Wineaway
17 years ago Scott became fascinated about wine, and as with everything Scott becomes fascinated about, it soon became all consuming. After spending nearly every night for the next 3 years reading about wine, contacting winemakers, visiting wineries and wine stores, and then working short stints in wine retail and then a wine and general storage business, Scott set up Wineaway, a business dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of fine wine. Wineaway is essentially Scott’s life work, something he has been passionately dedicated to for the past decade. The business has been operated with one overarching value throughout the years and that is to ‘do unto others (and their wine) as you would have them do unto you’. The journey has been long and there have been many barriers, but to this day the philosophy has never been compromised, and never will be, and it is the essential ingredient to Wineaway’s success.
Scott’s favourite drop these days are the wines from Burgundy (red & white) but he also enjoys all other varieties and regions.
Jody was at the coalface when Wineaway began over 13 years ago during the highly difficult and stressful formative years. Having ensured that Wineaway bucked the trend of the majority of start-up businesses, Jody then did what most 25 year olds wish to do - travel.
On her return to Australia Jody spent the next 7 years working in the Advertising Industry as a Creative Services Manager/Agency Producer and Post Production Producer. Eager for a sea change, Jody rejoined team Wineaway at the end of November 2007 to once again assist Scott in managing the business and taking Wineaway to newer heights. The role is diverse and very hands on, and you will find Jody doing just about everything there is to do at Wineaway.
Jody’s favourite drops are Pinot Noir & Champagne.
