Wine

The Granite Belt is about much more than award winning wineries, cideries and boutique breweries it is the people you will remember long after the smooth flavours have left the palate.

The region offers a personal and intimate wine experience unlike any other in Australia You won't find robotic staff or people who make you feel bad because you don't know how to pronounce "Gewurztraminer". In fact, the person behind the counter is likely to be the owner, winemaker or a relative serving you a drop, and more than happy to talk to you about their passion.

The journey of Granite Belt wines has been long and undulating, just like the hills that hold our vines. With our wines now consistently receiving recognition nationally, wine lovers are quickly adding the Granite Belt to their list of favourite wine regions. Amidst warm and welcoming people you will arrive as a stranger but leave as a friend.

The Granite Belt - internationally recognised as a wine region through its official Geographic Indicator (GI) status - combines much sought after granite terroir, cool climate and high altitude to create national and international award winning wines.

The uninitiated have been heard to say that it takes a lot of beer to make great wine! The Granite Belt Brewery has been a great welcome to the region for lovers of ale, while Sutton's award winning apple cider is a celebration of the fruit that first made this region famous.
