Our Story

Our Story

We acknowledge and pay respects to the people of the Yugambeh language region of the Gold Coast and all their descendants both past and present. We also acknowledge the many Aboriginal people from other regions as well as Torres Strait and South Sea Islander people who now live in the local area and have made an important contribution to the community.

Created by two friends, Rafael and Kath, with a dream to bring a taste of Europe to the Gold Coast. Quince Fromagerie and Cellar opened in 2018 as part of Cornerstone Stores, on the Southern Gold Coast.

A boutique providore of European and select-local wines, spirits and cheeses. Quince imports limited edition and hard to find products. Not satisfied with the status-quo, Quince is committed to imparting their knowledge.

"Quince is a homage to our French and Italian heritage with a fusion of family, food, wine and great conversation."

Located within the beautiful Cornerstone Stores at Tugun, we invite you to visit our fromagerie and experience our friendly, personalised service, or shop online from the comfort of your home, as you choose the perfect gift for a loved one or an indulgent treat for yourself.
