Our wines among the world’s best

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS -

SOUTH­ERN Downs wines are once again mak­ing a name for them­selves on a global plat­form.

The Gran­ite Belt re­gion made it on to Gourmet Trav­eller’s 50 Top Wine Ex­pe­ri­ences in the world.

The list boasts the Gran­ite Belt as hav­ing “a num­ber of fam­ily-owned, bou­tique winer­ies craft­ing charm­ing chardon­nays and stun­ning shi­raz. Even ries­ling rises to the oc­ca­sion.”

Au­thor Daniel Ho­nan rec­om­mends tak­ing a “self-guided road trip through­out this uniquely cool, high-coun­try (1000 me­tres) wine re­gion, stop­ping in at Bal­lan­dean, Sym­phony Hill, Rum­balara, and Ridgemill Es­tate winer­ies, just to name a few”.

“Don’t miss Jam­works Gourmet Foods, out­side Glen Aplin, with de­li­cious lo­cal pre­serves, jams and rel­ishes,” he said.

The Gran­ite Belt is listed among renowned re­gions in­clud­ing Cham­pagne in France, Tbil­isi in Ge­or­gia and Italy’s old­est win­ery in Tus­cany.
