Granite Belt “My Happy Place” Delivered To Your Door
beer, wine, soaps, jams, pantry items…
In this special part of Queensland we call our home the Granite Belt, ‘My Happy Place’.
So while you may not be able to visit, no worries, we can bring a taste or sip of the Granite Belt right to your doorstep.
Granite Belt Wines to Your Door
Our Granite Belt boutique winemakers rely on sales from visitors at their cellar doors (not income like exports for example) – so as you’d guess our empty cellar door tasting seats will hit hard. Adrian Tobin and his team at Tobin Wines certainly speak for all wineries in saying “we really appreciate your ongoing support with online orders, which will keep us afloat while these restrictions last.”
Tobin Wines have taken the extra step of closing their cellar door to visitors amid this crisis, but like our dozens of Granite Belt Wineries, their premium wines are the ideal way to treat yourself in these tough times. View Tobin Wines collection & order form.
Craft Beer Coming to Your Backyard
Having a few ‘sessions’ on your lawn… without your mates… you at least deserve it to be some darned good beer!
Get your beer delivered by Granite Belt Brewery and at the same time support a small Stanthorpe family-owned business through this tough time. Owner and brewer Geoff Davenport says about his easy drinking Session Ale (Kolsch), “you could drink it all day and have a really great session – it’s slightly tart, with a sweet hopped flavour that’s crisp and refreshing.” View the full range of craft beer in the brewery’s online store
Handmade Soaps + Sanitisers: Delivered from this Small Business
Melissa, the ‘master soap-maker’ at Ballandean’s boutique soap store says “if you’re washing as often as recommended you’ll be wanting a gentle soap that doesn’t leave your hands feeling stripped, dry or irritated – gentle like our Foaming Handwash or Hand & Body Wash.” While Washpool is closing its’ physical doors, they will continue to hand make their naturally sanitising soap on site and are dispatching orders daily. Take a tour of their online store here.
