The Granite Belt stretches from Dalveen in the north to the NSW border town of Wallangarra in the south. The Granite Belt is one of Australia’s most exciting wine regions. It’s distinctive, cool climate wines are winning critical acclaim and accolades like never before and slowly but surely the wine drinking public are changing their perceptions of “Queensland Wine”. Centred around the town of Stanthorpe the Granite Belt has a long history of viticulture and winemaking. It is one of the highest wine regions in Australia, with vineyards at more than 1000 metres above sea level. The Granite Belt is quickly growing an enviable reputation for its complex elegant cool climate wines, in particular for alternative varieties.
Beyond chardonnay. Beyond shiraz. (Although both do brilliantly here), there are the Granite Belt’s magnificent alternative varietal wines. Our ‘Strange Birds’. To be called an alternative a variety must represent not more than 1% of the total bearing vines in Australia (as defined by the Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation).
At the southern end of the Granite Belt, you’ll discover the small localities of Ballandean and Wyberba.
Pyramids Road runs through Girraween National Park in Queensland’s Granite Belt. The park features a range of natural wonders including two huge granite outcrops known as “The Pyramids”.
Warren and Sue Smith will welcome you at the cellar door for wine tastings and sales. We look forward to sharing our passion for wine as well as the fruits of our labours.
Opening times – daily 10:00am to 4:30pm, including school holidays & public holidays. Please see our contact page for directions. Located just 20 minutes from Stanthorpe and Tenterfield, elevation 746m.
