If good food and great wine make a perfect marriage, then the Granite Belt is looking forward to a long and happy partnership.
The Granite Belt is not only the highest wine region in Australia, its unique terroir with its longer growing season and deep granitic gravels produces wines of elegance and complexity. Cool climate wines as individual as a fingerprint.
And wherever you choose to dine, it’s likely you’ll be served fresh local produce of exceptional quality. Long before the Granite Belt gained a reputation as Queensland’s premier wine region, a multi-million dollar horticultural industry flourished. There are apples and stone fruit orchards, row crops such as tomatoes, broccoli and capsicums and more recently vast fields of strawberries. In the summer months the region is Australia’s largest producer of salad greens.
Take home artisanal cheeses, locally-produced olives, oils and vinegars, jams and preserves.
Fill your basket with fresh local fruit and vegetables and your car boot with cartons of award-winning wine or beer.
